My Favorite Bands/Artists
These are by no means in any special order.
Gackt – His voice is beautiful (as well as other parts of him). There are some songs that seem a little pop and some that seem a little more rock-ish so it appeals to both sides of me. He has some very heartfelt songs that I want to listen to over and over again. I started listening to him when he sang for Malice Mizer and continued to listen to him after he went solo. My favorite songs by him at the moment are: Ghost, Returner, Redemption, Seiipai no Sayonara, Farewell, and Seki-ray.
Phantasmagoria – Visual Kei at it’s best!! Riku *faint* is amazing…voice, beautiful…appearance, beautiful. Need I say more? Unfortunately, they band stopped making music together a while back, but their songs are worth listening to. My favorites are Eternal Silence ~Gensoukyoku~, Variant Jihad, and Neo-ark.
Versailles – Another visual Kei band; with another beautiful creature as the front man. There are some very dramatic intros and their PVs are fantastic. My favorites are: Sympathia, The Love From a Dead Orchestra, and Beast of Desire.
D – This band is the same as the other two visual Kei band’s I’ve described, but with a bit more femininity thrown in. My favorite is: Ouka Saki Some ni Keri. Yeah, just one, but it’s amazing!
Kokia – Her voice is unlike any other I’ve heard before. She has a little bit of an operatic sense, but it’s very gentle. Most of her songs ballads. Favorites: Ai no Melody & Cyouwa Oto ~With Reflection~. Both of these songs are featured in the anime movie Origins: Spirits of the Past. Ai no Melody makes me cry everytime I see the video…just watch it.
Well, I think I’ve wasted enough of your time for today…at least with videos. ^_^ Sayonara!
