Rufio - Science Fiction

     Even the most hardened metalhead has some songs, albums, and bands that they enjoy which fall outside the genre. As regular readers will know, rather than fight these non-metal urges, I try to indulge them pretty often. This is one of those times.

     The term "pop punk" might conjure images of bands like Sum 41 or Blink 182 (or other, less numerical bands) but it needn't be so verboten among metal enthusiasts. Case in point: Rufio, a band with the speed and the chops to appeal to those who might otherwise turn up their noses at bands like those mentioned above.

     As exhibit A I present to you "Science Fiction" from the 2003 album MCMLXXXV, a sweet little track that should be more than enough to convince the more narrow-minded among you that there are some badass bands out there that don't fall into a traditionally metal-looking genre. Have a taste today.
