Visual Kei

Visual Kei, anyone?
Any inspired by any of it?
Hee.
 
I likes the aesthetic, and I am inspired by it. Although the music holds little appeal to me for the most part, not dark enough.

o.o;;
Guh, try Dir En Grey, Mucc, D'spairsray and NoGod as bands.
=D
 
Dir en Grey did that one song I like, Obscure I think, but they're still not really as dark as I like in music, even their newer stuff. I shall look into these other bands now.
 
Some of Mucc's songs start out pretty cool like Dai kirai and Zetsubou but they all seem to devolve into typical J-rock chord progressions and it kills the atmosphere for me.
 
I like D'espairsRay's use of synths in songs like Maze and Forbidden. I like this band, seems like they do best with faster, more upbeat songs. Good for when I'm in a good mood, I shall have to look into finding some of their CDs.
 
This is probably my favourite Japanese band right now, I wish they would move away from the Hellhammer/Celtic Frost influence a little more and maybe add some reverb to her harsher vocals, as well as mixing them just a little quieter. They seem a bit too caught up in the 80s aesthetic, but they're just so cute :3 .

Also song starts around 45 seconds in, don't know what the intro is all about :p .

I was into VisKei when I was younger, more for the looks than for the music, but that seems par for the course for many VisKei fans.

I am a big fan of Janne da Arc which has its roots in VisKei, but despite moving away from that image, they still have that sort of reputation among the youth culture... I mean a lot of their music is like pop rock synth stuff now D:

I think Acid Black Cherry, the JDA vocalist's current solo project, is supposed to be more VisKei... but I'm not really a fan so much. :x

I used to like visual kei. When I was 15 I was obsessed with Gackt.

Then I met other visual kei fans.

They are worse than furries. The are SO full of drama.

I also started to like big, beefy men, and most of them vomit pocket at the sight of any kind of body hair or muscles.
