sample the album:
"This is a real blues album created as an expression of devotion to 20th-century blues. But not blues as a style--the object of devotion here is the blues spirit. You might even say this album is the successor to authentic blues. Those who get it, get it!
"Keijo Haino sent Seijaku out into the world as his permanent band. At the time of recording, this was to be a single album, but the combination of Haino's overflowing musical ideas and the unlimited improvisational abilities of the three members quickly led to the decision to release two works with different concepts. Keiji Haino calls them "20th-century blues and 21st-century blues." Both albums contain fiercely spiritual music offered up to the spirit of the blues. This is nothing like ordinary rock. It's real rock! And blues!"-Doubtmusic
