IMPELLITTERI “VENOM” Japan Tour 2015
28.5.2015 (Thu) @Tokyo TSUTAYA O-EAST


Finally I played a live with Chris!!

I've been told about it many times until now and I want to look back again.





I encountered IMPELLITTERI back when I had just started playing guitar.

The overwhelming speed of Chris' fast guitar play carrying the title "fastest in the world" was quite an impact.

I immediately became a victim of Chris and at the same time rose a passion for guitars!

If it wouldn't have been for this impact, I might have become a completely different type of guitarist.

And moreover I even might not have been playing guitar today.

I think being a beginner guitarist and suddenly having the goal of becoming the worlds fastest guitarist was really reckless and ridiculous at the same time.

Quite possibly I could have made a complete fool of myself.

But while desperately copying IMPELLITTERI taught me a lot of techniques in my pursuit by doing nothing but playing fast.




6 years ago when IMPELLITTERI had a tour in Japan I was able to see Chris and his guitar play directly, which I had desired for so long.

And I could meet him after the show! I remember saying "I Love You!!" with excitement and tension.

I had a very enjoyable time.



At the end of last year I received the offer to do the art work for IMPELLITTERI's new CD.

This was not the "Guitarist's" aspect but with natural pride and my enhanced skills, I could participate in Chris' work!

Pouring my best techniques and affection into the artwork, I was very happy that Chris liked it at once!



Suddenly the situation developed further! I said "One day I'd like to perform with you"

and I received the invite "Why not have a session next time we play in Japan?" from Victor, who was in charge.

Is it finally becoming reality...!? I thought and couldn't stop smiling.

The session song was the first song from the album "Answer to the Master", "The Future Is Black".

It was crazy to play a song from there.





After all that, the day of the live came.

Until the day before I was running through simulations in my head but I was somehow not really satisfied.

However much I wriggled, it was inevitable. On the day "The person who enjoys it, will win! I'll risk it no matter the outcome" I told myself, ready for the worst.


And then I met Chris again after 6 years. I was so happy he welcomed me we a smiling face!

Because of the tight schedule I didn't know if a rehearsal would be possible, but the band arranged some time for it!!


With the confirmation of a light phrase I immediately received a direct lecture from Chris! What a side benefit!!

I was relieved my ear copying mostly matched.



Welcome to the live!

At the first song of the encore, I was called onto the stage by name.

The twin guitar with Chris I was yearning for!

And Rob was singing!










I already said that on twitter



but the sight was brilliant.



It was a clear and open-minded feeling.



Chris immediately came next to me and during the guitar solo we cuddled up and played the guitar.



It was just a little but it was a bodily sensation I had serveral times in my dreams.






At the end of the live I was invited to the stage with the members.







That picture is amazing!! So cool!







Two-shot with Chris!!








Of course this was not my final goal,

but I can see the fact that I have dreams, objectively.


The boy in the corner from Kyoto who awakened by listening to Chris' guitar who has been referred to as "world's fastest",

was the same on the stage as an artist, playing the gutiar.


I'd like to tell this to myself from that time.

It's like "I've done it! This effort became rewarding".


There was also pain and anxiety and times when I made no progress.

But this way I was able to affirm my own progress.


The Jupiter member and officials told me

seeing me was so moving they nearly cried.




Thank you Chris and IMPELLITTERI members for greeting me so warmly.

And thanks to all the people who gave me this opportunity.



Also in the future I want Chris to keep charming us with his guitar.

And I want to play guitar with him again!









I'd like to utilize these experiences and gratitude for future activities.

I want to show everyone what I "embody".


Thank you!

[please see Teru's blog for the pictures]


[I am sorry for my long absence. I'll try to translate more entries again, although I can't promise that I can do every single one.]

Lin×Jupiter×Black Gene For the Next Scene Coupling Tour
"Battle For Clans Tour 【V3】" Final
2June 17 (Tue) Shinjuku BLAZE



Coupling tour day three! Final!

We just had the 2DAYS ome-man at BLAZE last month!




I already wrote that at twitter, but that day we got ready too quick so I got tired of waiting (laughs)

But luckily I was able to properly take two-shots (laughs)

So let's have a look at my two-shot corner ε=┏( ・∀・)┛


2014-06-23_10
I could take a two-shot with KISAKI-san from Lin ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Lin chapter 2, do your best!!!!



2014-06-23_11
Two-shot with MIZALY-kun from Lin☆

We also talked and he said "The guitar solo of Ai to Kanashimi no Nocturn is amazing!"

I was really happy about that (laughs)( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

but when I tried to play it in front of his eyes, I made a mistake(laughs)←




2014-06-23_12
Two-shot with Toki-san from Black Gene For the Next Scene☆

We always talk about guitar equipment, always things to learn! (´∀`)



2014-06-23_13
The last is a two-shot with Kosuke-kun from DEATHGAZE☆

During his Vellselk times our bands played together a bit☆

I hope to be able to work with you again ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ




And about the show!

SE-Introduction-
1.Blessing of the Future
2.-己-Innovation
3.LAST MOMENT
4.Scarlet
5.Symmetry Breaking



Jupiter was setting off in attack mode.

Seeing all your faces give me a strange sense of security.

The fatique of waiting vanished! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Personally I enjoyed it a lot!!

Thank you☆



The last coupling of the event was a session of the 3 bands!

Vo.ZIN & Ice & SUI

Gu.HIZAKI

Gu.Toki

Ba.KISAKI

Dr.YUKI

played the LUNA SEA song "PRECIOUS"!



Actually, because I was listening to "PRECIOUS" in the rehearsal

I has it stuck in my head the whole day

the melody of a endlessly blowing whistle (laughs)←annoying




For the session they changed into kindergarden costumes, entering the stage as Gaya personnel!

And there was a happening while Rame-san was singing (laughs)

as they closed the curtain in a peaceful atmosphere☆





With only 3 days it was quite short but it became a hot tour!!

I only wrote about one, but I'm glad we are lucky people to  experience such an enjoyable thing☆

Lin-san, Black Gene For the Next Scene-san,

everyone we played together with at the events

and also all fans

Thank you! (。・_・。)/☆

Lin×Jupiter×Black Gene For the Next Scene Coupling Tour
"Battle For Clans Tour 【V3】"
2014 June 13 (Fri) Nagoya HEART LAND


2014-06-23_5

Coupling tour day two! Nagoya!


2014-06-23_6

It's been ages since we've been at HEART LAND~

After a long time of absence, my memory was very blurry,

but as we arrived, I constantly had "Ah~Uh-huh~ah" moments (laughs)

This is also shiny←



2014-06-23_7

Since we were early our rehearsal was first.

I've got the feeling that the stage acoustic was quite unique (・_・)


2014-06-23_8

Since the dressing room was very small, we waited in the karaoke room nearby

Last time we came, we got prepared here

but this time I witnessed for the first time, how our own songs were put into the karaoke machine, which was very impressive~ (laughs)

Ah, and everyone sung a lot of Jupiter songs at karaoke!! (laughs)




HEART LAND is located right next to a game center, so I took purikura there☆

Did you get any the other day at our first anniversary live?



A showy group occupies the purikura machine!

…that sight must have been rather strange (laughs)

Also the way it recently makes your eyes bigger without permission is revolting (laughs)





2014-06-23_9

With ZIN just before the show!

Speaking of which, I tried out odd eyes with coloured contact lenses in light blue and purple☆

ZIN had a dark make-up challenge☆

It's a pity, that due to the order of our appearence I couldn't take any two-shots with other band members~





The stage changing was bad

and they were quite pushy as Lin-san finished (・_・;

After this and that we started the show!



SE-Introduction-
1.Symmetry Breaking
2.Decadence
3.LAST MOMENT
4.Azalea
5.-己-Innovation
6.Blessing of the Future




Thanks for everyone who stayed until the end!!

I guess I did the live, seeing all your faces, one by one☆

I actually was able to see how we made it enjoyable! (´∀`)

Just don't forget that I also have to play guitar solos with a high level of difficulty... (laughs)


Since we also had an encore, we just entered from the entrance side of the hall!

Sometimes it's nice to do it like that (laughs)



Also, we discussed a good timing with Lin so we could go out to eat together,

but suddenly their departure time was changed and it didn't work out (laughs)

Well, if there's another chance!! (´∀`)


To be continued with show #3! ε=┏( ・∀・)┛

Lin×Jupiter×Black Gene For the Next Scene Coupling Tour
"Battle For Clans Tour 【V3】"
2014 June 12 (Thu) OSAKA MUSE



Since June began we did more and more composing, working hard on creating new songs,

but since my mind was still set to compose mode I didn't update my blog often (・_・;

That's why it got so late, but I'll upload something about the coupling tour anyway!


"Lin", "Jupiter", "Black Gene For the Next Scene",

Maybe there are people who think of us as the 3 different coloured bands,

but reaching the shape of the current bands, in our history every one of us was bound together by destiny.

It's nice to come together like that!!




So, we went to Osaka for one day!

2014-06-23_1
The day before we came from Tokyo to Osaka ε=┏( ・_・)┛

As we stopped at a service area, I took a picture because the fog was hanging there beautifully☆

By the way, during the trip I slept deeply as usual~ (laughs)






Night, arrival in Osaka.

We relaxed a bit in the hotel, and then I rushed out to buy some takoyaki ε=┏( ・_・)┛

2014-06-23_2

I found those delicious salty takoyaki last time☆

There seemed to be spring onion and other options, but since I didn't say anything at the beginning, I got the simple ones (laughs)

I was allowed into Maashii's room together with Yukio and roudie-kun (´∀`)






Dawning, day of the live.

Around noon we entered the venue and started preparing. Well, like always.

I talked a lot with the shop owner who helped us out before☆



This time my boom was nostalgically DOKKEN (laughs)

so at the sound check of the rehearsal I somehow played the guitar solo of "In My Dreams".

After the rehearsal Rui-kun from RevleZ surprised me as he said "You just played DOKKEN, right?" (laughs)

There are really people knowing them!!

Although it was our first meeting, we had the chance to talk a lot ♪( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

George Lynch-san's rator guitar is cool after all. I also have to improve my sharpness~



Well, I uploaded it already on Twitter, but this is with SUI-kun from Lin☆
2014-06-23_3
He was extre~mely polite as always (laughs)

I designed a CD cover back at Metis Gretel times

We've been in contact now and then ~ nostalgic!




With the 4 members of Jupiter!
2014-06-23_4
Huh! That's only me and Yukio, but?

you might have thought, but one can hardly see it~ ( ´艸`)

But then, if I would say it, it would look like a ghost photography (laughs)






And about today's show!

SE-Introduction-
1.Blessing of the Future
2.-己-Innovation
3.LAST MOMENT
4.Azalea
5.Scarlet
6.Symmetry Breaking



Actually we had a quite stable setlist (laughs)

Since thanks to Haru no Arashi our hearts got stronger

and although there were people who came to see us for the first time, we were able to have a live with more room!

I guess there were many who smiled naturally☆

Really, thank you very much for coming, although the time was quite short.




As the live finished, we went to Nagoya ε=┏( ・_・)┛


Picture at the service area we dropped in at☆

I feel like I took a picture here before (laughs)



In the middle of the night we arrived in Nagoya!

Good work~

To be continued with show #2!! ε=┏( ・∀・)┛

stylish wave NEXT GENERATION VOL.1 - Jidai o kakeru wakamusha-tachi -
31.5.2014 (Sat) TSUTAYA O-EAST




The other day at TSUTAYA O-EAST was the event 『stylish wave NEXT GENERATION VOL.1 - Jidai o kakeru wakamusha-tachi -』!

This time we played together with SuG, Royz, DIV and NOCTURNAL BLOODLUST

with whom we already performed together several times before so I was was looking forward to this event a lot☆






Enter before noon. Recently we’ve often been entering venues early, so this time I felt it was strangely late (laughs)

2014-06-02_1
↑Stage during setting~

We’ve been preparing ourselves, doing rehearsal… well, just like always (laughs)



I'm always replacing my guitar strings before lives

and I was buying strings the day before

but today I had to stay in-doors for some reason.

This is TERU. ←

So I was grateful to the staff member who ran out to buy them for me (laughs)





Now also this time, my well established two-shot corner!

Actually I always get ready fast so I can make two-shots (laughs)

2014-06-02_2

Two-shot with Subaru-kun from Royz☆

The red hair suits him well! I like his singing voice but I guess I like his normal voice as well!


2014-06-02_3

Two-shot with Kazuki-kun from Royz☆

I was missing him horribly, so it’s a shame he will leave Royz, but I want him to follow his way properly.

I'm glad we could talk a lot!


2014-06-02_4

Two-shot with Chobi-kun from DIV☆

It’s been a while since I have met Chobi-kun, so I was surprised, noticing he changed his image~ ( ☆∀☆ )



2014-06-02_5

Two-shot with Chisa-kun from DIV☆

This time his outfit was very refreshing! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ




And this time I completed two-shots with members of SuG!! Yeah!

2014-06-02_6
Two-shot with Shinpei-kun from SuG☆

As you know, he’s a member of the session band Re:unity(´∀`)

During rehearsal I’ve clearly seen their 「Gimme Gimme」 from the centre of the second floor seats!! (laughs)



2014-06-02_7

Two-shot with Takeru-kun from SuG☆

Silver hair comrades ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

By the way, I felt empathy when I read his interview with "R&R" some time ago~



2014-06-02_8

Two-shot with Chiyu-kun from SuG☆

When I entered their dressing room, I was very nervous, but Chiyu-kun eagerly took a photo with me☆




2014-06-02_9

Two-shot with yuji-kun from SuG☆

In SuG’s dressing room they told me "It’s unusual that yuji-kun makes two-shots with members of other bands" so I got excited (laughs)




2014-06-02_10

And the last was two-shot with masato-kun from SuG☆

I felt a quite surprised when I was approached with “Please make two-shot with me!” at the corridor all of a sudden (laughs)

Thank you ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ



Unfortunately I couldn't take pictures with NOCTURNAL BLOODLUST, due to their early performance!

When they finished, I talked a lot with bassist Masa-kun( ´ ▽ ` )







And about the show!

Opening with SE, our tension rose greatly at that moment because of calling the members!

Especially even more at events!!

We started with "Blessing of the Future".

I could afford not thinking about my whole body. The balance between relaxing and stress is important.

Next was "-己-Innovation"!

I got excited seeing your confusion~( ´艸`)

Of course it’s ok if you don’t rampage during the song, but it was a song created for action so I’d like you to eagerly enjoy it☆

We continued with "Azalea".

Please use the towels during the chorus (laughs)

Then "LAST MOMENT".

To be honest, that day I wore brand-new boots, so mobility was outstanding☆

"LAST MOMENT" was also more bright than it normally should be (laughs)

We slowed down with "Luminous".

During the event making you excited was top priority,

but it's also good to play that type of song since you waited so long!

In the backing of the guitar solo of "Luminous"

we united the bass drum, bass, and guitar

but it felt good to make this, which was a beautiful decision (´∀`)

From there we made a complete turn blast!!

ZIN showed his towel in "Scarlet".

Recently also my engagement in "Scarlet" with HIZAKI-san increased!

The last was "Symmetry Breaking".

It seems like some people noticed that, so I will also write that at the end of this song we had a sudden accident (・_・;

As I wanted to play the guitar behind my head it slipped out of my hand the moment I rose it and it slapped into my face causing bloodshed (゜∀゜;)

But there is no need to worry since the wound was no big deal!

At lives you never know what's going to happen!

Well, that's good, but...!!




At the end of the event we said good-bye and met you to receive our fanletters!

It’s great we could make such a farewell.

And also thank you for all the letters I got!!

I read them all properly☆


All fans, and who participated and Hoshiko-san! Thank you very much!




By the way the next stylish wave is

『LOUD & METAL ATTACK』

Supported by FINLAND FEST


On the 24th we performed at Shinkiba STUDIO COAST at the Finland Fest 『LOUD & METAL ATTACK』!


Performing with metal bands from Finland which came to Japan, we were honored to represent Japan on stage!


2014-05-26_1

I've just been to Shinkiba STUDIO COAST lately to see Royz’s live,

but it's been quite a while since we last played there.

It started quite early so I got up at 6:30a.m. Recently we have a lot of lives, for which I have to get up early (laughs)

When we entered the venue, I think my hair already stood up at 9:30 (laughs)


2014-05-26_2

Preparing the rehearsal!

The monitor man was an acquaintance so it was quite easy☆



2014-05-26_3

With members of STAM1NA, who had a dressing room next to ours☆

I felt nervous because they looked so grim (laughs)

The guitarist of STAM1NA is also using ESP so I was glad that I had to opportunity to speak with him!!

I gave him a Jupiter CD as a gift ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ




2014-05-26_4

Continuing to be nervous we entered the the dressing room of AMORPHIS and made a picure with the members☆

I'm the only one who's a glittering spangle (laugh)

I watched their live and the flood of their lyrical melodies!

I really love the Scandinavian melancholic melodies!!

It somehow reminded me of songs from the Aikaryu time (laughs)





2014-05-26_5
Just before the show! Let's go!





[SET LIST]

SE-Introduction

1.Blessing of the Future

3.LAST MOMENT

4.Scarlet

5.Symmetry Breaking




The set-list was pretty intense.

Playing it felt good!!

It’s not that we felt uneasy taking part in a metal event,

but I think going through it with our own style made a dignified live broadcasting possible.

We also had the help of all the Jupiter fans and I'm glad the reaction we received was more than expected.

Thank you! Everyone was so COOL!!


It was a great encouragement and strengthened my self-confidence.

I'll pursue things I like and cool things even more!



Thank you for letting us perform at such an amazing event!

I LOVE HEAVY METAL !!
