coldrain is without a doubt one of best music projects coming out of the Japanese metal scene. And if anyone had not realized that yet, they demonstrated it on January 18th with the great 2-hour one-man-show “EVOLVE” at Shinkiba, Tokyo.

With a unique style, labeled at times as alternative metalcore, the 5-piece Nagoya band led by American-Japanese singer Masato gave a unforgettable performance to the crowd that packed the Studio Coast. The show started with a video-teaser of the band, made by the talented machi of Inni Vision, and it all exploded from there. A total of 24 songs, including 3 encores, made the audience go insane for the duration of the set. With multiple pits at many points in time, plenty of crowd surfing and a non-insignificant number of bruises, the fans and the band gave it all both on the stage and on the floor.

But you do not have to take my word for it. You will soon be able to witness it yourself, since over 20 cameras recorded the whole show which will become a must buy BluRay in the near future.

coldrain is off to Europe at the end of the month where they will play their first headlining tour in the UK (London-1/31, Bristol-2/1 and Nottingham-2/2), and then will tour almost the whole Europe opening for Bullet for My Valentine. So if you are reading this from any of the locations where coldrain will play in January/February, do not miss your chance to see this amazing band’s live show.
