SiM

SiM

A four-piece reggae-punk band from Shonan, Japan.

Their sound freely mixes hardcore punk, new metal, reggae, and ska music with a unique pop sense, and their lyrics are aggressive and rebellious, but also skillfully incorporate wordplay and quirky hook lines.
MAH has a unique appearance and charisma that has earned him the nickname “the devil” from fans and other artists for his ability to instantly win the hearts and minds of the audience with his outstanding centripetal force, and SHOW-HATE wields his instrument with unparalleled precision and moves around the stage, The combination of SIN’s stringed instruments and GODRi’s drumming, which supports the backbone of the band with its thick, tight groove and chorus work, makes for an explosive live performance that is nothing short of spectacular.

According to MAH, the band was “born in a live house, grew up in a live house, and will die in a live house.
They have sold out big-box solo shows at Nippon Budokan and Yokohama Arena, hosted the 20,000-person outdoor festival “DEAD POP FESTiVAL,” and headlined major outdoor rock festivals across the country, and have risen to the position of “destroying the rock scene from within,” both in name and reality. SiM has risen to the top of the rock scene in both name and reality, “destroying it from the inside out”.
They have established themselves as a live band after overcoming numerous challenges, such as numerous member changes, serious illnesses, and dismissals from their label, and they no longer have any blind spots.

SiM (Silence iz Mine) conquered their native country of Japan with a volatile mix of nü-metal and postmodern hard rock injected with hardcore attitude. The self-described “Reggae PUNX from Japan” broke into the US rock scene with hard-charging singles, including the #1 smash “The Rumbling.” With the release of PLAYDEAD via UNFD, SiM set their sights on the world. The band’s music conjures the melodic bombast and rhythmic punch of early 2000s heavy hitters like Linkin Park, and Deftones, with precision blasts of chunky metalcore and the renegade spirit of classic reggae and punk. They’ve created six full-length studio albums, three mini-albums, and an EP since their formation in 2004. SiM wrote 2022’s “The Rumbling” for the massive anime Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 and “The Rumbling” shot to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Hard Rock Songs. It quickly racked up over 110 million streams on Spotify, and the official music video crossed 47 million views on YouTube. They sold out the world-famous Nippon Budokan in 2015 and the 17,000-capacity YokohamaArena in
2016. The same year, they made their US live debut at Knotfest Meets Ozzfest. PLAYDEAD, SiM’s dynamic sixth studio album pushes boundaries with a genre-blend of fast-paced rock and dance-punk anthems, featuring the hard-hitting “RED,” the theme song for the Netflix anime Kengan Ashura and a staggeringly beautiful orchestra! version of “The Rumbling”. SiM are set to take over the world in 2024.

The piano and straight alto voice approach with overwhelming persuasiveness as if singing. The passionate emotions that flow from the small body united with the piano sometimes portray gentle beauty, sometimes heart-stirring frustration, and sometimes light amid loss.
The lyrical world written from a unique perspective dramatically sublimates daily life’s ordinary scenes like a short story.
