  1. Is something happening with the Visual Kei scene in Japan? I've noticed quite a number of new bands posted on here recently whose sound is reminiscent of Visual Kei ranging from the late 90 to mid 2000's. It's mainly the sound but the aesthetics, the hairstyling also reminds of those days. It makes curious.

      probably just the scene itself reflecting on an era when flexing a 24-string bass (while ending up playing for 20 ppl) wasn't a requirement idk

  2. Does anybody know what band this is?

    Is it only me or some of the newest VK bands posted recently sound more early to mid 2000's?
  4. I would like to hear about the changing industry factor he mentions as the cause for departing.

    It all looks reminiscent of old school Visual Kei. Even the poster looks poorly photoshop-mounted like some bands in those days. 😊 The music also gives me a bit of the old vibe.
  6. Vallquar has nice musicians but the vocalist hindered the potential of their music. It's like he was afraid to sing high notes when he had to. Was it because he can't reach high notes, lack of practice, insecurity?

      i like the singer, nice and abstract sound.

  7. I hope this is a serious proyect. I don't know how well they're doing but hope they can succeed in the scene. I also hope the broaden their spectrum of old school Visual Kei sound. There are many bands that are worth as inspiration: Lar~Mia, Veill, DERAIL, etc.

    What a nice announcement. I loved them back in 2013 (time flies...) and I still listen to their music, but I wonder if this beloved style can make it today. The times seem tough even for current VK bands.

    Visual Kei has nothing refreshing to offer anymore; at least to me. Sure, today's bands play instruments better than older bands and vocalists singer better too, but there's no essence and charisma in Visual Kei anymore. The times seem also to be over this kind of scene.

    I wonder what their lives are like. First era Malice Mizer comes to mind by association.
  11. Hmm, perhaps I got the opportunity to experience Japanese music at the right time. Not only Visual Kei. I don't think it would have turned out the same way if the current state of Japanese music had been the rule in my time. Hard to imagine myself without it since it has had an impact in me to this day that today's whole Japanese music scene hasn't.

  12. Will it be a covers album...?
  13. Until now I never realised one of my favourite songs by Jakura, スリィフラット, was sung by a different vocal. I wonder why 明透遊 left. Also, what スリィフラット means?

    The members of this band look emotionless. When you see older Visual Kei bands all members had a presence. Musically this bands has potential but I feel their musical composition lacks some depth or versatility. And the vocal needs to widen his range, I mean he always sings in the same tone (screamy); he never seems to sing lower, whisper, etc.
