Ra:IN “Japan Tour 2012 Final!”


Ra :IN walked in fully armed and ready to battle to a fierce tune that got the hall off their feet, arms up as they welcomed michiaki (bass), PATA (guitar) and Tetsu (drums) for their 2012 tour final. The set started with the sound of rain appropriately engulfing the hall.  Drums roaring, the strings took over for the passionate “KAI,” michiaki and PATA taking turns in the front, fingers caressing the strings with precision for mind-blowing riffs that awed the audience. The heat rose and the ride speeded up, with Tetsu delivering powerful hits to the cymbals under burning red lights. The drummer kicked off “Cloudscope,” the bass becoming harsher and stronger and setting the pace for the crowd who mimicked michiaki headbanging passionately. Bass and guitar met in the center of the stage for a heated duel, michiaki falling on his knees dramatically as he focused on the strings. From a bright and joyful start the song darkened, the tune growing pessimistic as the bass deepened and the guitar raced in a tearful solo.
“Tokyo, please enjoy!” the bassist – and show’s host – yelled out welcomingly in English. The connection between the songs never really broke, the instrumentals reassuming their fast paced journey promptly for “Signal.” The energy was positive and contagious, the string duo meeting once more in the center for a feisty battle. Knees almost kissing the floor michiaki and PATA were unstoppable delivering unforgettable riffs with un-matching showmanship.  Tetsu surely kept up with his fast and vigorous drumming, sticks rising and falling at high speed as he led the transition to “Under the technopolis.” Blue took over as the hall was transported to Ra:IN’s underground world. The bass work stood out michiaki seeming ready to battle as he pointed the guitar to the audience. The tune and lights gave the whole scene an apocalyptical tinge, the instrumentals fierce and strong.
“Dive” started slow and dark for a midnight lonesome drive. “This is a new song!” michiaki explained before the song brightened up and the positive tune got the crowd swaying. Band and fans seemed to be having a blast, michiaki moving constantly and helping out with vocals. PATA took the forefront with a smile for yet another powerful solo, the crowd’s dancing arms making for a nice landscape. “Wish” proceeded to fast drums and distorted guitars and blazing bass riffs that got the hall thrashing heads. Ra:IN had the crowd in their hands, jumping and dancing cheerfully to the beat.
“Summer” closed the set, the instrumentals incredibly fast and strong in a song that blew the hall away, vocals not at all missed as the three ignited Bay Hall with their impressive skill and charisma. The crowd wasn’t ready to go home just yet and the encore demand was soon granted, CUTT explaining “I didn’t have time to prepare for the encore! I was backstage and michiaki just told me “You come with me and read this!”” The crowd laughed and cheered as he introduced a hot and remarkable session. Members of Tokyo Yankees, LADIES ROOM, CUTT, Age of Punk and DER ZIBET gathered on stage for the classic “20th Century Boy.” The number was wild and unruly with Issay taking over the vocals while the other men moved casually around the stage beer bottles in hand as they joyfully sang with the crowd. It was a thunderous finale for an explosive show that brought 80es rock back to life with all its antics and passion.
