(Band) Versailles / Kamijo / Jupiter
« on: August 08, 2009, 03:14:52 PM »
~Versailles~



They are about to make their debut at a major label, so they deserve a thread! I can safely say that this is probably THE best band in the world. No kidding. The guitar and song writing skills by Hizaki and Teru are amazing. Kamijo's vocals may take some time to get used to, but at least he sounds different than most Visual Kei vocalist. Aside from the music, their appearance is truly epic!

If you don't know them, I recommend checking out this video. It should give an fair idea of what they're about.

Apparently Jasmine You died today. That's the rumor anyway.  Not a big fan of the band, but that sucks.

Versailles' Jasmine You: Dead?

2009.8.9 「Versailles」 Urgent Announcement

Though Jasmine You had taken time off in order to rest because of poor physical condition, we received a report that early in the morning on August 9th, he died. Because of the extreme abruptness of this news, the members and staff are all dumbfounded and trying hard to accept this it.

As soon as his family has been notified and updated as to the details and we receive their permission, we will further report to all of the fans. Moreover, with the current announcement, in regards to activity, please allow us to postpone it.

Versailles bassist passes away

Mon, August 10, 2009 (12:30am EDT)

Visual-kei band Versailles suffered a sudden tragedy on Sunday. An announcement on the group's official website revealed that bassist Jasmine You died during the early morning of August 9. Jasmine You had been taking a break from the band due to poor health, though the band was continuing its activities without him. But with the sudden news of his death, the other members of Versailles have decided to put their activities on hold for the time being. More details will be revealed after the group gets more information and the consent of Jasmine You's family.

Holy crap!  :shocked: Man that sucks. Just when the band was about to get huge. I feel so sorry for all of them. RIP Jasmine.

Damn I was in such a good mood today  :(

I was just staring at the screen in shock when I read this.. it's still kind of hard to accept. One of the things I loved about the band the most was that they were all so close and comfortable with each other.

RIP Jasmine.

As Shura pointed out, so is Hizaki. It's a great act, it goes far beyond the dress and make-up. As you can see in this pre-versailles era clip, also the headbanging, movement and expressions look feminine.

HIZAKI grace project - Race wish [Live]

What I like about this particular clip is that you can see how the quality of the dress developed, compared to the clip in the first post.

In addition, he talks with his normal voice, which I think is awesome:
