Personal concert review: SIN. at Ikebukuro Black Hole (Sept 24th)


This is one of my 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!

4th band on stage was: SIN.
They had the same look as on the picture below.


Their look was not as much visual kei as the bands before, they rather reminded me of a regular rock band.

But they truly had charisma. Especially the vocalist, leo. I got totally in love with his energy and natural charm. He truly had a great connection with the audience.

Since none of them hade any super-complicated hair-styles, they could all rock their asses off and headbanged like crazy. I love when the band work out as much as the fans.

The vocalist was constantly moving around, gesticulating and dancingl. I loved how he moved his hips smoothly to the sides, dancing while standing on the ledge.

The drummer yura, was drop dead gorgeous. His hair hair had turned pink by now (washed out).

While standing there, I though leo reminded me of someone, both concerning facial features, expressions and gestures. And then I made the conclusion that if Ryoga (BORN) and V.I.P would have a baby, it would be leo.

The music was totally OK, but not that much too my liking that I wanted to buy any merch. But thank you for a great gig!

This picture if taken by the staff. You can see the top of my head in it. 😛 I’m the read head in the very back to the right. Since I’m usually much taller than the Japanese fans, I keep myself in the back due to courtesy.

This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire.
