After performing a successful show at the Petit Bain in Paris 3 days before, without forgetting the unexpected show at the Warmaudio in Lyon, first memorable date of their come back in France, we're lucky for having CRYSTAL LAKE for one more day in Paris for this New Tour. And they stopped by the JAPAN EXPO this time. A surprising apparition for such a band, which will undoubtedly stimulate metal fans to reconnect with Japan Expo. CRYSTAL LAKE agreed to answer questions from Japan FM, French web radio about J-Music, before to meet one more time their French fans during a signing session and to close this friday by an amazing showcase at Karasu's stage. ・
JAPAN FM : Ladies and Gentlemen, CRYSTAL LAKE!! Thank you so much guys for being here and giving us some time to interview. So, your band was created in 2002 and it keep thrilling the audience, with the saturated sound of a rhythmic guitar and the double pedals of the drum, and the speed and slap of the bass. Epic sound, for an epic band, so this is an epic interview of course. So, your band is worshiped in japan, and we can see you play with other amazing bands like CROSSFAITH, COLDRAIN, and so on. Can you tell us what made you want to make metal?
Ryo (Vo. CRYSTAL LAKE) : When I discovered this kind of music, I was really impressed, because the music came directly into the heart, and that's how I like this kind of music ever since.
JAPAN FM : Ok. What’s about you?
Yudai (Gt. CRYSTAL LAKE) : At first I listened to Japanese music of course, and other songs from foreign countries, but the more I listened to the music, the more I wanted something heavy, and that brought me to here. [...]

2018.04.01 GREED TOKYO「Down For Life Pop Up Store」@ Shibuya, Tokyo (JP) It was the opportunity for me to visit the shop for the first time. I discovered this shop by CRYSTAL LAKE’s members wearing brands like OLDX and DOWN FOR LIFE. I went into the shop by this famous yellow door. And I really enjoyed the Street Fashion Style of this Shop! This is a cosy place, with an interesting (« 危ない » ? 笑) Design : Stickers, Pins, Postcards, Flyers, Paintings, etc... And the seller of the Shop immediately remembered me : « Ooh! You, Crystal Lakeね! »
Me : « Yes, that’s it! » (🤣) . Seller : « おぉ、今日はクリスタルレイクのライブじゃない？ »
Me : « 今日じゃない。明日は名古屋。もちろんぜひ行きたいですけど、行けない… (笑) でも、来週の日曜日BLOODAXEへ行くよ！(笑) »
Seller : « すごい！笑 Gaelle/ガエルですね？ »
Me : « はい、Gaelle/ガエルです！ »
Wow, I was really surprised that he remembered my name as big fan of CRYSTAL LAKE! Really amazing! That’s why then, he asked me to take a picture with the cap I bought, and a picture with my friend too.
When I realized that @yd___ (Gt. CRYSTAL LAKE) went to the shop just after me!😱 So yes, definitively, This is the way we are, This is the way we die~💜 Thank you so much GREED TOKYO, you were all really amazing! 本当にありがとうございます！🙏 CRYSTAL LAKE、いつもありがとう！💜 #GreedTokyo#PopUpStore#OLDX#DownForLife#CrystalLake#クリスタルレイク#Hoodie#Cap#Shop#StreetFashion#Shibuya#渋谷#Tokyo#東京#Japan#日本#ThisIsTheWayWeAre#ThisIsTheWayWeDie

2018.02.11 CRYSTAL LAKE「BLOODAXE FESTIVAL」@ Shibuya Club Asia, Tokyo (JP) I was so stoked to see my boys again!💜 I always love to see them playing at BLOODAXE FESTIVAL where so many amazing Metal bands share the stage together during a whole day (GRAUPEL, EARTHISTS and LOYAL TO THE GRAVE that I’m used to seeing in Fest with CRYSTAL LAKE). GAKU (Dr. CRYSTAL LAKE) came on stage for a Vocal Featuring with OCTAVIUS, the 2nd band to appear on stage this day. CRYSTAL LAKE was planned to appear at the end of the day, just before EMMURE, the Special Guest coming from USA closing this BLOODAXE FEST 2018. And of course, as usually, CRYSTAL LAKE were the best! If I remember well, here’s the Setlist :
SIX FEET UNDER
THE FIRE INSIDE
So.... YES!!! They finally decided to play MACHINA, for the second time only since the last time they did it on January 6th at Hatsudai Wall in Tokyo! So I was lucky to hear MACHINA for the 2nd time~😈 Connections between MACHINA, THE SIGN and NEW ROMANCER was just a fucking kick ass!!💢 But time goes by so fast when you feel in Paradise... Ryo (Vo. CRYSTAL LAKE) said « Last song! », and I was like « Are you kidding me? »~😆 Thank you so much guys (@ryo_crystallake @yd___ @shinyahori @gakutaura) for making me feel better every time~💜 And special Thanks to @emmurecult for coming to Japan!! I was fucking excited to see you in Live!! I just thought : « Fuck! Violence in Heavy Metal Music is life!!! »😆😈🤘🔥 Please, come back soon!!🙏 Many cloud surfer and stage divers during the performances today. Thank you BLOODAXE FESTIVAL for always making me remember why I’m a Heavy Metal Lover!!🎸🎤😈💉🎶💜 (And my Zombie face after this crazy day proves it~😆🤘)

2017.12.02 MAGIC ROOM STORE @ Shimokitazawa, Tokyo (JP) CRYSTAL LAKE「True North Limited Box Set 」+ MAGIC ROOM STORE「Hoodie Designed by AG (Vo. NOISEMAKER)」This place is the paradise on earth for J-Music lovers~💜 I always wanted to visit this store, but it was difficult to find the time to go there because of my busy schedule (and to have enough money to spend?🤣). MAGIC ROOM STORE released some days ago their own Hoodie designed by AG (Vo. NOISEMAKER), who made the artwork on the wall of the store. Congrats to AG for his amazing work!👏 I was really happy to be able to see your artwork in real finally~💜 So when I saw the news about the Hoodie, I immediately thought : « OMG! I need this hoodie! ». But it was a Limited and popular item, so the stock was declining quickly every day. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to go to the store before today, so the hoodie was supposed to be Sold Out. When I arrived to the store, I immediately asked the Staff : « By chance, this hoodie is it still in stock?🙏 » And the Staff answered me first : « Sorry, it’s Sold Out... » Before to continue : « Oh! We have the Last One in L Size! » So I just said : « OMG! luckyyyyyy!!!🌟 Of course I buy it!😃 ». I was really happy to get the last one!💜 Then, I just took a look around. And of course, I noticed on the Official Website of the Store the True North Limited Box Set of CRYSTAL LAKE!😍 The band released this Special Limited Box for the release of their New Album « True North » last year. So this box was now normally unfindable, being a Limited Edition. So it was like a miracle for me to be able to find this Limited Box of CRYSTAL LAKE one year after the release! Luckyyyy!🌟 So of course, I bought it!💜 I’m so happy to add this wonderful treasure to my precious CRYSTAL LAKE’s collection!💎❤️ Because CRYSTAL LAKE is my addiction~💉 Today was a lucky day~🍀 Thank you so much to MAGIC ROOM STORE’s STAFF for your warm welcome~❤️ See you again soon for sure!🤘#CrystalLake#TrueNorth#ThisIsTheWayWeAre#ThisIsTheWayWeDie#Noisemaker#NoisemakerAG#ArtWork#MagicRoomStore#Jmusic#Jrock#Jmetal#Live#Gigs#Shimokitazawa#下北沢#Tokyo#東京#Japan#日本#NoMusicNoLife#MusicHasNoBoundaries
2017.10.31 CRYSTAL LAKE「TRUE NORTH EUROPEAN TOUR 2017」@ Backstage By The Mill, Paris (FR) I still can’t believe what happened in Paris that night. To see my favorite band holding the French flag with my name and picture on stage was more than everything I expected. Indescribable feeling~❤️ My favorite band with all my best French friends: This is my family~💜 I wasn’t in Paris but I got wonderful memories thanks to everyone. Even if now, I can often see CRYSTAL LAKE in Live in Japan , it was very important for me to be a part of their 1st gig in France for their 1st European Tour. Thank you so much again to my friends for everything they did for me that night. And Thank You so much to CRYSTAL LAKE for being amazing, close to the audience and helping me to move forward and to get stronger every day! Power of Music is amazing. Because Music has no boundaries! I love you all!!❤️ CRYSTAL LAKE、
