K2 - The Rust

 Bαριεμαι απιστευτα να κατσω να γραψω το παραμικρο, οποτε θα υποκριθειτε πως διαβασατε κατι παρα πολυ πρωτοτυπο και θα ειμαστε ολοι ευχαριστημενοι.  

When it comes to prolific artists, the question of quality over quantity inevitably arises, especially if the nature of the music is improvised. In K2's case, you can't tell if his constant output is following a pattern or he just goes berserk over his gear, but if you are anally retentive you can hear the edits and the cuts, pretty much like a Holger Czukay production on bath salts. So, is this edited material considered an improv or just an open-ended composition? And last but not least, why the hell did I choose The Rust instead of Metal Dysplasia or Molekular Terrorism?
 The answer is simplistic and bypasses any logical argument, so spare your ifs and buts. I chose The Rust because it slays. You can't ignore it  by any means, due to its shrill mastering that goes straight into the forbidden Pulse Demon territory, instigating one of the most vivid examples of antagonism between the artist and his audience. It's safe to say that you'll spend hours counting the numerous edits, as well as trying to figure out how the fuck is this record out of the canonical status that it rightly deserves.
