This is one of my more personal kind of posts. I’m in Tokyo right now and on September 24th I went to an whole-day-visual-key event at Ikebukuro Black Hole called “Dark in the DarkVol.45～ジャック in the ハンター2016”.
There was 14 bands performing and I will give you my review about almost each and one of them, but in separate posts (takes time to write them all). But you can see all current ones at this link!
First band on stage was: SchwarzKain
Schwartz Kain had their debut in July and this was the first time for me to see them live. They had the same look as on the picture below.
I got very amazed by the singer’s (Izumi) vocal skills. He could make something I would call “Indian/native american cry”. He had makeup smeared on his chin and heavy dark makeup. The music was hard and Izumi has quite a dark voice. His cloathing looked really warm. No doubt he would start sweating.
Ayaka is the cute one. Constantly smiling.
Izumi wanted us to scream something (sorry, my Japanese is too poor). Apparantly we weren’t good enough, cause he told us it was all about “timing”. Sometimes his screams reminded me of Tsuzuku’s (MEJIBRAY), the high-pitched ones.
Yepp, Izumi is another “dirty” jrocker, offering us fan-service by grabbing his crotch and touch it intensly, to the fans delight. I would guess that Izumi isn’t very young.
Izumi told us to create a void in the middle of the crowd. We stood in a ring, and then he told us to headbang together. It looked nice and felt nice.
But he wasn’t totally satisfied. He jumped down to the audience and wanted to head bang with each and everyone of us. He whispered in peoples ears and tapped their shouldes. Then he stood beside them and headbanged like his head was going to explode. The girls were very shy.
For a while I couldn’t see him, but suddenly I felt someone’s hands on my shoulders, massaging me. I though it was some pervert and got angry, but when I looked back, I saw Izumi there and I blushed. But I approved.
I must say I liked their live. It was heavy and hard. There was connection between the artists and the audienece. I recommed you to see SchwarzKain!
