I’m on vacation in Tokyo right now and on September 17th I went to takadanobaba AREA to see 7 bands. I’ll try to post a little note about each performance in case anyone is curious. 🙂
Sixth band on stage this night was Vexent. I’ve really liked the songs I’ve heard from them so far and I absolutely love “Welcome to the darkness”.
So Vexent was one of the reasons why I went to Ikebukuro in the first place and I was considering to mention them as favorite when entering the venue. (In the last second I changed my mind and said DIMLIM :-))
I hate to say it but I got a little bit surpriced by their appearance. The members seemed so young, except the singer who appeared to be older than I thought. He had a bit goofy and “exaggerated smile” that I by some reason have a problem with. I had expected somthing more deep and seductive. They weren’t bad, it just didn’t match the way I’ve pictured them. It’s entirely my fault. 🙂 They were extremely cute though and wore the same clothes as on the picture below.
They started the show – to my delight – with “Welcome to the darkness”. Mako wore a black skirt upon black pants (and blue underpants, but I don’t think we’re supposed to see that. :-P). He was very theatrical and repetitively stuck his long tounge out while making big crazy eyes. Not what I expected. 🙂
It was a good show though and Mako made some groin moves ala Ruki. ^_- Approved. He was also a good growler and screamer. I started to feel dizzy by all headbanging since I hadn’t been eating that day… and probably been drinking too little water. This was the first time I experienced a furi that included giving the band “the finger”. To me, “giving the finger”is a very rude gesture, so I can’t really do it. 😛
There was one part of “never-ending headbanging” (as I call it), same musical part in repeat for a very long time to fire up the audience. I loved it. The hair of the fans whipped the air constantly for probably 5-10 minutes. Mako danced with big steps and a little bit too short pants. They ended the show with “Ai nante saishun” which is really good as well. It was a really nice live!
