ジン – 雷音 (Raion)

“Raion” by Jinn is their first single, and also the 4th OP theme for the anime Blood+. “Raion” could be said to be the song that gained them national fame when they appeared for the first time on Music Station (a music TV program in Japan) performing live on national TV.

When I first heard this song, I didn’t like it too much, simply because the singing wasn’t that good. The lyrics to their songs are very simplistic and minimalistic. And they looked as if they just walked out from a dirty basement studio when I first saw their music video (they still do, but I got over that). But the song’s energy and the way Jinn played their music was simply infectious. The energy and unconstrained way of playing their music was very refreshing.

Their b-side tracks are just as good as “Raion”, and I have to say that I’ve become rather fond of Jinn after listening to this single a couple of times. Here’s a video of their live performance mentioned above. A scruffy looking bunch (and their lead singer, Hii-tan is not the best looking gal in the world) perhaps, but they just seem to hold nothing back while playing and one really could grow to like their style of music.

ジン - 雷音 (Raion)

歌詞 / Lyrics:

最高速度の生命体エネルギー
干ばつ
回避
循環
構成
回路

低体温!!低体温!!飛べ、さぁ!
クラッシャーin the sky
浸透、真理、謎残し、帰ろう

何が昨日のままで
涙 汚されたのか
最後に跳んでいったカケラを

焦がしてく、焦がす!!
飛べ、さぁ!
クラッシャーin the sky
浸透
真理
謎残し、帰ろう

何かが枯れて
誰かが嗤う
あぁ

瞬発性・直線的・眼光・雷音
突発性・真向的・言動・ライオン
この世界に永遠なんて
『問題外!』
一つだってあるはずがないよ、そうだろ?
何度も救い上げても
勝手に滅んでゆくよ
最初に見たまんまのイデア

走ってく、止まる!!
飛べ、さぁ!
クラッシャーin the sky
浸透
真理
謎残し、帰ろう
