Bye bye One OK Rock and Hello Hyde (VAMPS)

This is a story how I am going to see Hyde again ๐Ÿ™‚

About three months ago, I bought a ticket concert to see One OK Rock. I am not a fan but I really like some of their songs, especially The Beginning which is the soundtrack for Rurouni Kenshin (I love the movie and can’t wait to see second movie). Even though I am not a fan but I have pledged that I will support any Japanese bands that come to Jakarta as a way to show them that we love more Japanese bands to play here so that the ones I really want to see will consider Jakarta as their tour destination (I am expecting Lunasea, X Japan and Gackt to play here…and of course another L’Arc~en~Ciel concert).

In short, I bought the ticket and hoping to hear the songs I know.

Here’s One Ok Rock singing The Beginning followed by trailer of Rurouni Kenshin

You can read my review on the movie > here

The concert is supposed to be on November 24, 2013.


A month ago…things changed! I have to give up my OOR ticket so that I can watch another band…a band called VAMPS. I am not a fan of this band either but the I love the vocalist as he is my number one vocalist (Five favorite male singers)…the vocalist is called Hyde. Yes! he is the vocalist of the band I have loved for the past 12 years, L’Arc~en~Ciel (anyone who has been to my blog knows how much I love that band.

Vamps Indo

Hyde has two bands, one is his side project. One of the reasons why L’Arc~en~Ciel is still together for over 20 years is because each member has the freedom to have side project.

Like I said before, I am not a fan of VAMPS because their music is not the kind of rock music that I like and because Hyde doesn’t sound as good as he is when he is in L’Arc~en~Ciel. To be honest, if I heard Hyde in VAMPS before I heard him in L’Arc~en~Ciel I wouldn’t end up choosing him as my number one favorite male vocalist. Even though I am an avid rock music fan but I always like bands with a vocalist who can sing beautifully not merely screaming.

But Hyde is Hyde!!!

No matter which band he is in (or even as solo artist) I will march down to the concert just to see him again. I might not know all their songs (In fact all the fingers in one hand is still more than the number of their songs that I know) but I will enjoy seeing Hyde moving around the stage….and this time I will take a lot of pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰ I didn’t bring camera when L’Arc~en~Ciel came (to Jakarta) because I prefer to sing and dance with them…but now I am not going to sing because I don’t know their songs.

Here’s a sample of VAMPS’ concert. (I watched it like 20 minutes and then changed it to L’arc~en~Ciel ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I do like Evanescent because it reminds me of Hyde when he is still doing solo.

I am hoping that he will sing that song and some songs from his solo album, Roentgen and 666. But whichever songs he will sing, I am still going to enjoy HYDE ๐Ÿ™‚

Note: wish me luck on the draw to have A meet and greet with Hyde ๐Ÿ™‚

Ps. I forgot to mention that VAMPS is a duo, there are Hyde and KAZ.

    Hello, Novroz! wanna say hi after I tried to post a report of OOR concert in the middle of my “hangover” from too much jumping, screaming, and head banging ๐Ÿ˜› , and to find your post for the newest Sherlock BBC series.
    It’s too bad that you cancel to watch OOR, but it’s ok since it’s for seeing Hyde closely for the second time ๐Ÿ˜›
    Then, can I watch VAMPS with you? It will be great if I can join you since I plan to watch it by myself but I need to say that I’m going to watch it with a friend of mine to have the permission from my Mom ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Winnie ๐Ÿ™‚
      You know if it’s not too much trouble, would you like to write a guest post of OOR Concert review ๐Ÿ™‚
      But do it completely, with picture and links to youtube fancam…I have NO TIME to do it myself (I mean finding the link etc). It sounds that everyone had a blast … good for you and everyone else, since I am not a fan I don’t feel like I miss much ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Sure ๐Ÿ™‚ I am going alone too but I usually find people I know there…it always happens when I go to Japanese lover community.

    I see what you mean about the raggedness of the voice, but I love the imagery of Evanescent.

      The PV is really good. I really like it too. Too bad he didn’t sing the song.

        You mean in the concert? For a minute I thought you were talking about in the video.

        • Novroz
          December 15, 2013

          Hahaha…yes in the concert. I was expecting that song but I guess it’s not a popular choice for a concert.

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
