Sajjanu - "Pechiku"
This an exhausting initial listen to be sure, but at this point I consider it one of the most profound and mind boggling pieces of music ever to be achieved by humans operating electric guitars and a drum set. A lot of comparisons have been drawn with fellow Japanese acts "Ruins" and "Naked City", but I really implore you to put this record on the next time you ever feel the need to analyze and pick apart music. Each song is composed of intricately crafted, run on sentence riffs, broken up by slight improvisation and a mellow jam out here and there. It is an INSANE amount of rhythmic and melodic material to be exposed to in one sitting....it may wear you out, but the experience its definitely worth it.
