Because I have a mission of getting kyoto_no_hikari
into Visual Kei J-rock! It's really tiny, kinda crap, but the best I could come up with with my short attention span. XD I chose 5 bands to go in depth, uploaded a couple of songs for each and linked to their PVs on Youtube. Please try out the songs, you don't even need to download them, just stream it from the site I uploaded it on.
Also, please correct/forgive me if any of the info is incorrect. :3; I'm totally new to the J-rock fandom, only got into it 1 and a half months ago~ XD
So, what is Visual Kei?
According to Wikipedia
, Visual Kei (ヴィジュアル系) refers to a movement among Japanese musicians, that is characterized by the use of eccentric, sometimes flamboyant looks. This usually involves striking make-up, unusual hair styles and elaborate costumes, often, but not always, coupled with androgynous aesthetics.( Collapse )
