Visual-Kei has really gone downhill, but it had it's glory days with Luna Sea, Dir en Grey, and Malice Mizer. But now, they're all clones of each other, IMO.
Moo.

Oh yes, SID are awesome. The latest album, Hoshi no Miyako sucks balls, though. :( At least compared to Renai, which was sweet as hell.

The only track that's worth listening to for a while is Alibi.

Ajisai is a classic. That track has recruited a whole lot of SID fans.

Ao and Hitsuyouaku are also good.

I wouldn't mind some ranting. lol A lot of bands these days are practically clones of each other. It doesn't stop me from listening to them, though.  :lol:

Yeah, the Ajisai PV is great.

Gazette have sort of developed their own style lately. They started out as Dir en Grey clones, though.

And yeah, almost every band out there are influenced by X Japan, LUNA SEA and X nowadays.

Nope, I don't think I've seen that preview yet. And Ruki is the name of the vocalist.  :lol:

Any bands you keep in mind?


You mean the part about bands being influenced? Not really. I've read some interviews where members of different bands mention LUNA SEA, hide, Sugizo etc. being the person/band they admire and take after.

Ayabie's best song is "Daikei", in my opinion.
Moo.

lol. Daikei is awesome. How did the english background lyrics go again?

Oh, actually I was referring to other bands being influenced, not myself.  :lol: I'm not particularly good at playing any kind of instrument.

Ah, I've heard of them but haven't found any samples. They're with Undercode if I'm not wrong.

Dude, everfree, it's working!  :lol:  We managed to get two other people posting, and SITS is one of them.

Damnit', we need a topic or people will disappear again. Er, VK or non-VK?
