3 stars Prog Rock Scene of present Japan. Especially, the existence of Tathuya Yoshida always makes the listener change shape according to the necessity of the music and listen to the power and the performance for the field of Avant-Prog.

The name of Ruins and koenjihyakkei is known to the world now. After forming Ruins in 1985, the activity of his music produced music based on the meaning and the concept of something. After Ruins debuts with Boredoms in the United States in the 1990's, his activity becomes active and multiplies the spur by the music character further.

Another band that is called Koenjihyakkei exists in Tathuya Yoshida. These bands guess that it is known well and it succeeded in telling Avant-Prog of Japan and Zeuhl that the Japanese thinks about in the world to the world for him. Or, activity of him of the shift offers a lot of music exactly produced with the agility of the place in the 90's.

Power and agility that plays his drum by love of the Christian Vander because of characterization of it. Or, it performs by multiusing the Polyrhythm. And, it will have a perfect element of Ensemble.

Avant-Prog of Japan that he had pulled to the shift in the 90's exactly sent the world various bands , for example, Ruins and Koenjihyakkei. It might remarkably show the situation of Avant-Prog of Japan of the 90's.

This band is a band to which Tathuya Yoshida created one concept in the band of Avant- Prog of Japan with such a flow having it. It is not an exaggeration to say that it will be a flow that derives from Ruins and Koenjihyakkei. The band was formed in around 1995. Another musician was taking charge of the Bass player and the guitar player. And, they enter the time of a little rest. However, they ..".. accomplish the revival as ..continuation.." Korejyojin in 1998. It is guessed that it is a base that this produces this album.

Drum player of "Ruins". Guitar player of "Bondage Fruit". And, the Bass player of "Altered States". The nature of the performance is exactly derivative to these uniting from the line of Ruins-Koenjihyakkei by natural acts of musicians active with Scene of Avant-Prog of Japan, too.

There might be the explanation of the origin of the name of the band by the interpretation when the culture and the character of Japan are considered and be a difficult point, too. "This" of "This Heat" is translated into "Kore". And, "Giant" of "Gentle Giant" is translated into "kyojin". Therefore, it is said that they are challenging music that draws the flow of This Heat and Gentle Giant intentionally in this form of three people.

It is a flow of the avant-garde of Ruins overall. Or, Improvisation that requires the agility. And, Ensemble done by three people and high quality atmosphere. These elements are consistent through the album. Three performances that do might overflow in exactly a little experiment and tension.
