4 stars I've found out!

Exactly hard-edged sound battles among the three perfect avantgarde rock giants (Kyojin in Japanese), and as a result, a musical republic commune created by them ... This album "Tundra", released in 2011, is a brilliant progressive rock crystal for us, and at the same time we can notice via this album that their live performance should be quite fascinating.

What a splendid instrumental fight indeed. A killa drummer (and the frontman of this ensemble) Tatsuya YOSHIDA, whilst playing massive attack with drumming, might be upstaged by other two rock talents I'm always afraid, and it's sometimes correct. A cool, intelligent (mentioned by himself :D) guitarist Natsuki KIDO explodes his guitar weapon loudly, strictly, and especially comfortably. A funky, but quiet bassist Mitsuru NASUNO lets his bass growl deeply, sharply like a wild beast. And Tatsuya, the basis of KOREKYOJINN, goes ahead and ahead aggressively via playing drums with his magical sticks in his machinery hands.

Their gig I've experienced was gorgeous indeed. Can express that as a rock energy explosion. Easily I've got sure that even upon stage they can play as "precisely" as upon their recordings, and this album could notify me the fact. Loud electricity, swift thousand hands, complex but smooth guitar merry-go-round, or gentle acoustic waves ... Natsuki shoots various touches. Mitsuru sometimes hides behind other two, and sometimes stands upon the frontline like Chris Squire, as kaleidoscopic appearances. Tatsuya struggles for unifying all of characteristic artists through his killa drumming, and at last can navigate them apparently ... what a vanguard.

In conclusion, this album has notified me that they be a super combo with perfect technique and strong intention to beat the audience out via their aggressive, avantgarde inner / outer space. Their albums can only be an entrance into the giant world named KOREKYOJINN. Woohoo, keep your ear sharpened ... you can realize that one and one and one is not three but thirty or more.
