Five years have passed since SIAM SHADE broke up. It is finally the right time for the lonely warrior DAITA to form a new band... Its name: BINECKS. After SIAM SHADE's break-up, DAITA succeeded in starting a solid solo career and he has grown in both spirit, technique and fitness through releasing remarkably artistic and high-quality solo albums. He is now recognized as one of the top class guitarists that represent Japan. And now another side of DAITA is revealed, as the total producer, composer and arranger of a band. He must bring out the best in the melodies and compositions. DAITA composes all of the songs and writes lyrics for most of the songs himself. He compares the musicality that is brought forth by combining these two great aspects, namely instrumentals and songs, with the necks of guitars, hence: BINECKS.
For the vocalist he has appointed KEITA. DAITA heard of KEITA's music through a third party and was certain that he was a talented vocalist with great hidden potential. Contrary to his stylish and emotional singing voice, in his warm-hearted, charming expressiveness you can catch glimpses of naivety and rough edges. Especially the quality of his voice is wonderful. During the show, it got more color as the songs went on. He sent the audience deep vibrations and firmly grasped their hearts.
Distorted Minds --- The sudden quintuple time gives you an unusual premonition and makes you realize the wide range of the band itself. KEITA's groove made the venue go crazy. It merged with DAITA's drop D tuned Dean HardTail's sound, and in an instant an inimitable space overflowing with originality was created.
Shout of our soul --- DAITA used a Dean V for this song. The down-picking of the backing embodies what supremely cool hard rock is all about. DAITA sang backing vocals during the song, and the way they entwined with KEITA's singing made you feel the depth and wholeness of the composition itself.
Original Beat --- Here we have the perfect solo. Its relation with the lyrics and melody, the timing and phrases when the solo begins, and the tone of the guitar are in a completely different league. It is so great that, thinking of the structure of the whole song, the solo is indispensable. The quality of KEITA's voice also felt absolutely charming, and the whole audience was swept up in the mood of exaltation.
La.Venus --- A song not on the album. It is fantastic — makes you look forward to their second album... A flawless song.
Flash Love --- Here the venue completely became one. At this moment KEITA completely caught the hearts of the audience. It was also the moment when the vocalist, who was still an unknown quantity, became an artist. During the intro, the silhouette of the two standing back to back surely gave all the fans confidence to place their dreams on this band. It was the most emblematic scene of this concert.
Belief --- An awesome song. That is the only word that can describe it. There's nothing bad to say about anything — lyrics, melody or arrangement. Here is DAITA's way of life, the things he wants to show the world with BINECKS. During the chorus, the duet between KEITA's vocals and DAITA's guitar was truly a thing to see. It's exceptional. First, you have got to check out Sacred Vision!!
