Ra:IN
Magnificent rock maestros, each of whom has
made big achievements or played an active
part as a session musician in the front line
of Japanese Rock, joined together in 2002 to
form Ra:IN. This new band will be the core of
their activities,and will continue permanently.
(The band was joined by DIE in 2007. )

The band plays "Loudest Rock" with its
own innovative and heavy groove.
Their sound is rooted in the fertile tradition
of British Rock. Much attention has been
paid to their music with the band receiving
rare reviews. Ra:IN has got enthusiastic
support from fans and critics not only
in Japan but in the international music scene.

Since their debut, the band has build
an aggressive and powerful movement
throughout Japan, Asia, and Europe.
They have released 3 albums,
a Maxi-single and a live-DVD.

Their style is an original one. Each member's
distinguished techniques have enabled the band
to create an amazing instrumental rock.
The uniqueness of their sound is never
categorized into any genre like Hard Rock.

After DIE joined, the band has generated
a newly evolved music circle, incorporating
diverse aspects such as ethnic music, Electronica,
Trance music, or featuring vocals and vocoder
in addition to instrumental music.
It"s real Mixtured Rock!
             by JuJu

The name of “Ra:IN” was given by
the legendary bassist
"Masayoshi Kabe" .
(Golden Cups, ex. Johnny Louis & Char)
The band’s logo mark was designed by
Ken Sakaguchi. (Sakaguchi Ken Factory inc.)
