This Mutsession post will be....full of fangirlish stuff.
If you don't like stuff like that - shut this page. Now.
Let's begin with something I only do on Japanese concerts:
Handing out presents.
Since I was in Japan and saw how normal it is to give gifts to the bands...I am brave enough to do it over here as well. Also the band asked for certain things...and this is what we gave them. Hope they enjoyed it, haha.
This is what I was looking like when heading to Cologne with Anna ♥
It was actually the same venue we already visited to see Calmando Qual a few months ago!
To be honest I really like this one, even though it's small.
You'll always find me at the same spot...and it's perfect.
Though this time there were A TON OF PEOPLE and it got super crowded!!!
DEATHGAZE are pretty hard and I actually lost my fake lashes while banging my head off hahahah.
Thank you, Ai! Thanks to you my Makeup was gone, my hair was a mess and I was all wet.
Ai, the vocal of DEATHGAZE suprised me a lot. When I started to listen to DEATHGAZE around 2008 I didn't care about the band members at all. I just knew their songs and it was love on first sight.
A few years later I stumbled on an artist photo of DEATHGAZE and watched one of their PV's. Thinking they are one of the most ugly Japanese bands I just continued ignoring the guys behind the music. The music is the most important fact why I love them anyway.
Then someday I started to follow Ai on Twitter. There I got to know that he's obsessed with cats and actually pretty cool. Anna and me sincerely called him "Aichan", because on the outside he's that hardcore guy singing and playing guitar for a metal band and wearing black metal makeup. But on the inside he loves cats and is covering everything in cats and cute stuff. He also sometimes writes like a cat.
We stopped calling him Ai-chan as soon as he got on stage.
At first I was quite amused as Ai was acting like "Hey look at me I'm a super cool rockstar! Wohoo!" but this changed during the 2nd song.
I can't remember what he was playing...but his live attitude is...enormous.
I never thought I would say this but he's really - and I mean REALLY- sexy. Sexy isn't even enough.
As soon as he felt comfortable on stage he became a beast and obviously enjoyed the fans reactions.
Those stares..those fingers...everything he did said "oh come on girls...you wish you'd be the one I'm ******* tonight!"
Sorry for those words, but I can't describe it in any other way.
DEATHGAZE did an amazing job with heating up the crowd. Everyone was shaking their bodies and banging their heads.
Ai froze 99% of the crowd when he started to slide one of his fingers into his mouth. Then sliding a second finger in...followed by his whole hand...FOLLOWED BY THE WHOLE F*CKING MICROPHONE!!!
Who does something like that?! I mean...why do you swallow your micro?! What do you want to say, Ai?!
I was speachless - just like everyone else.
Ai enjoyed the live to the max. And so did the rest of the band.
When the live was over I was happy to breath some fresh air. As it was hot outside the temperature inside the venue reached about 45°C. I was going to die.
Photo above shows cologne's famous cathedral ♥ it's a must-see!
DEATHGAZE sold those amazing tank top's and a few other things ♥
Even though it was onesize I had to buy it and tada - it fits! Yay!
Also bought a plectrum set that I already admired on this blog a few years ago haha...was super happy to see them sold!!!!
I will never forget this night. THANK YOU DEATHGAZE ♥ hope I'll see you again!!
To end this I'll quote Ai's plectrum:
I LOVE CAT
I LOVE MONEY
I HATE XXX
