SiM are a reggae and punk band formed in Shonan, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. Their music is a “loud harsh noise, and also difficult but somehow catchy.” It may sound quite contradictory, but the music is great because of the contrast. The band consists of four members.
They mix hardcore punk, new metal, with reggae and ska. That music are totally opposites but then they mix the sound with their unique sense of pop freely. Their lyrics are aggressive and rebellious, they play with words in a smart and witty way and their chorus is very unique.
MAH has great charisma, and his fans and other artists refer to him as the “Devil” since he has a distinct appearance and his presence with him holding a baton while conducting the music. He has amazing power to get the audience’s heart instantly.
SHOW-HATE is a skilled musician with accurate technique, and he runs around the stage while swinging around his instruments. SIN is in charge of the strings. GODRi is a drummer, who is supporting the band with his bold and tight groove when he plays the drum, and he also does the chorus.
Their live show is a combination of them, and the performance is explosively amazing. MAH says, “We were born in the live music club and grew up in the live music club, and we will die in the live music club.”
But they have also successfully sold out their solo live performance at big venues, such as Nippon Budokan and Yokohama Arena. And they have hosted the outdoor music festival called “EAD POP FESTiVAL,” with a venue of 20,000 people.
They also became a headliner at various big outdoor rock festivals all over Japan. SiM climbed up to the top of the rock music scene, with the wish “to break the rock scene from the inside.”
They have changed members of the band numerous times, some of them have suffered from serious sickness as well. They faced many challenges including being dismissed from their label.
Now they have no blind spot to worry about since they have established their status as amazing live performers.
