Since the end of the school semester, I've been working close to 65 hours a week, and attempting to maintain somewhat of a social life, so my time with music has been limited, and my time with new music has been limited more so. So, rather than post a new album I know nothing about, I decided to upload something I KNOW is fucking awesome. Ruins is a drum/bass duo that began making face melting, Sabbath inspired, operatic controlled choas when I was still in diapers. This collection of highlights from early releases is a good starting point for those who have never heard the band. The drummer, Yoshida Tatsuya, is by far the greatest drummer i have ever seen live in my entire life, and he has had the fortune of playing with some of the most creative bassists I've ever heard. I think Tatsuya has cycled through 5 different bassists over the years, if I'm not mistaken, but everything released from the band has been amazing. For the love of God, listen to this shit. If it was not for Ruins, bands such as Lightning Bolt, Hella, and Melt-Banana would not exist, and if they still did, their music would not be nearly as badass. Listen to tracks 1,7, 12,13,17,18,19,20, and 22.
