English translation of our original publishing.
A young French wanders the streets, looking for his way with difficulty in this area of the great Tokyo.
Finally, it is at the mouth of an alley and through the help of a young Japanese that it reaches its destination, THE HOUSE-LIVE: HEAVEN’S DOOR.
« Ironic? » asks the young man as he walks down the stairs into the living lice.
Indeed, the place is like the underground scene that survives across the country: dark, dirty and small, hiding from life on the surface, a little ashamed to exist.
« We are far from reaching the paradise » says the naive when he orders a beer at the bar whose surface is covered with graffities.
But some would say that appearances are often misleading.
Soon, foreign delights in this obscure corner of the city, taking with smile while in front of him already, a group whose name escapes him, spread the rest of his setlist blows guitar lines and medium of hazardous songs.
« This is a place that suits them, » said the young man soaking up the special atmosphere in these places, where just about twenty people waiting silent, the group that he too is interested strongly.
Tonight KAIMOKUJISHO (カ イ モ ク ジ シ ョ ウ) is on stage.
After the release of two promising drives, this young trio sounding indie rock / garage / metal today remains unknown to fans of the genre. What’s better than the first album released in November and a tour on the occasion, to show what the group has in the stomach? And believe it or not … it’s dynamite!
After fifteen minutes of waiting, the time to install the gear, the group finally goes up on the small stage. The few presentations of past use, the musicians put on their instruments while the singer warms up in his own way, moving like a pendulum into the ring. The lights go out, the room is silent.
Here the explosion.
From the first seconds of live, abroad suddenly understand why he so wanted to come.
The trio is incisive violent carnivore. Everyone does his job very well, making almost forget the notion of space and time to the assistance that finally wakes up in the room (I must say that the previous training had not really helped).
For their short setlist (five tracks), the musicians begin with a new song track from their next album « Jidou » and play a few songs from the first EP « CONCEPTION » and the last mini, including the mastodon « 海 の 果 て » whose strength based on a guitar riff surprising mix of punk and groovy rhythm. It was this guitar that will hold the first intention of this small French Portes du Paradis. Yes, because the sound of YUUKI TAKAHASHI is tempting, dirty, sharp, recalling not without nostalgia that of indie bands who twirled youth in the 90’s. No need for a bassist, it is a group on its own, making the birch three guitarists with his rack of 20 pedals.
The drummer (TETSUYA UEDA) meanwhile has nothing to envy. Throughout the short show, he will hammer his toms with a ferocity unnamed precisely the accompanying guitar lines and vocals alienating NATSUMI NISHIDA. The latter, moreover, under cover of a sound and lights pretty well managed, well demonstrate that being a woman in a man’s world is not a defect. Her voice resonates, speaks, touches. Her screams collide, upset and rattle the eardrums while in the length and breadth of the scene, his body seems to move only as a human dispossessed of herself and unable to control its members.
That character to say the least intriguing is reminiscent of a horror movie well known.
The pieces are connected and heat rises, but already the singer announced that this is the end. Coup painful dagger when in his final statement thanks, the first notes of the masterpiece from previous mini-album: « The root of international voices » resonate. A security whose richness and musical coherence to what envy of more than a scholar of grunge, metal and punk music.
The song ends after more than 6 minutes of madness, and the trio disappears discreetly so humble that when he arrived.
What can we learn from this concert? Its explosive content.
After two promising drives studios tonight the group has proven that he can do also live music.
KAIMOKUJISHO has spare. His world, his strength, his sincerity is undeniable. The only regret of the evening lies in the duration of the set-list. What sublime fireworks … but too short!
Hopefully in the near future, the group will have the opportunity to experience his music in public, and for longer.
Do not worry friends, November seems to be a good start. And that’s good because these guys are talented!
