* SpokenWordInMusic: His singing style is pretty much a hybrid of this + CarefulWithThatAxe - his vocals have [[HollywoodToneDeaf little to no melody]] and little if any flow and are speaking/screaming as singing. It's probably StylisticSuck, or that he realized that even if he wasn't a good singer his backing band would make up for it, which seems to have been the case: COLOR was a fairly good band aside from his vocals, and with The Killing Red Addiction, Taiji and Kenzi pretty much made whatever he was singing irrelevant. It also helped back in the COLOR days that he did have the visuals and fan interaction parts down, making him a good live performer even if an arguably mediocre studio vocalist.
* VisualKei: One of the first artists to have went post-Visual, due to his disgust on how modern VK has become all about [[AttentionWhore gaining attention]] and [[FollowTheLeader copying famous artists]]. Nonetheless, he has signed some of the most successful modern Visual Kei bands, and still signs new[=/=]indies Visual Kei artists.

* FlameWar: While he and Music/YoshikiHayashi may be on relatively good terms now (as opposed to waging ''literal'' FlameWar in bars), their fans are occasionally all too happy to continue the FlameWar online. It's generally not a good idea to discuss DynamiteTommy favorably around Yoshiki fen, nor a good one to discuss Yoshiki favorably around many DynamiteTommy fen. And unless you want to ignite an almost nuke-level flare of internet backdraft, do ''not'' even bring up the subject of Music/DirEnGrey moving from Extasy to Free Will.

Hiroshi [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "Dynamite]] [[AwesomeMcCoolName Tommy"]] Tomioka is an ex-singer and currently the most prolific label owner and producer in Japanese VisualKei. Debuting in 1986 as the vocalist for Visual PunkRock band Music/{{COLOR}}, he became known at first for his then ImprobableHairstyle (the entire band, true to their name, went with incredibly over the top hair color and style), for his ''very much'' LoveItOrHateIt vocal style, and for a nigh-legendary [[TheRival feud]] with Music/YoshikiHayashi that led to [[KungShui the total demolition of a bar]] during one of their [[BarBrawl fights]].

* EpicRocking: This depends on what you think of his voice. In a more meta sense, he has helped some of the most EpicRocking bands ever (including DirEnGrey) on their way to notice and, for some, eventually stardom.

Currently, he is the most active figure in Japanese VisualKei, with Creator/FreeWillRecords being the most active label. He is also somewhat outspoken on the issue of music as a part of society in Japan, but currently tends to keep a lower profile internationally.

While performing with Music/{{COLOR}}, he realized he had a talent for A&R and production, and formed Creator/FreeWillRecords. He has maintained a steadier focus on music and music-related activities throughout his career, seeming to prefer the role of producer and finder of talent, though he has been involved in a steady stream of bands, the latest band of his own being Music/TheKillingRedAddiction.

Music/TheKillingRedAddiction - that was, until he announced the reunion of Sisters No Future, with himself as the vocalist.
