Our first introduction goes to Gackt, known for his start in the Visual Kei band Malice Mizer back in the 90’s, this famous front man has enjoyed a very successful solo career known as “Gackt JOB”. Drawing upon multiple talents, Gackt is also known for his modeling career as well as his acting prowess in several commercials, television shows, and films.
Founded in 2008 by Hyde (L’arc en Ciel vocalist) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust guitarist), VAMPS entered the music scene seemingly by storm. In the summer of 2008, VAMPS released their first single “Love Addict” and followed with a 46-show tour.
Angelo was formed in August of 2006 by ex-PIERROT : Kirito, KOHTA, and Takeo. Their first single “REBORN” was released in November 2006 and was soon followed by their second single “WINTER MOON” in early 2007. Their premier album “REBIRTH OF NEWBORN BABY” was soon after released in April of 2007.
It is a rare occasion to find a long-standing band that has maintained a solid line-up for the entirety of their career. However, LUNA SEA—originally Lunacy—is one of those gems alongside being what most would consider one of the most influential rock bands in Japan’s history.
Created in January of 2008, Deluhi’s members consist of Juri (vocals), Leda (guitar), Aggy (bass), and Sujk (drums). Not wasting any time, they put out their first mini-album “SURVEILLANCE” the following month and followed with their first live the same month. After touring several Tokyo venues during Spring of 2008, their first single “ORION ONCE AGAIN” was released in July.[/quote]
