some of the best VK bands I have come across, mostly rock but interesting song structures

 

 

 

 

and an oldie but I still love this song

band needs more views IMO (j-rock/nagoya/visual kei)

^^ eh some people find VK to be not as...err, legit as other stuff. And I can see where they come from.

Not that I'm complaining, but love the older Kei.

I kinda grew out of vk, actually this the only actual vk band I listen now to apart from old dir en grey
post #951 of 1593

^^ Macabre and Kisou are so nice (the former is harder to get into). Wasn't too much of a Vulgar fan (though the classic tracks are stuck on there sigh).

Happen to like the deathcore Dir en gray as well (Dum Spiro Spero) and the composition on Uroboros is lovely.

Other albums...what other albums? :P

I actually don't get how you can grow out of liking vk, is it just a phase for most people? like what was it that got you into it in the first place? I continue to look for bands with a unique vk and good music at the same time

 

to me it has always been the atmosphere the vk can invoke along with their music, I don't like vk exclusively for the costumes and make-up or exclusively of the music, to me the perfect blend has been Versailles, Kamijo was so great in putting what he envisioned into reality

 

anyway cocklobin is pretty good, although I prefer stronger vocals, the band's rhythm is really good from what you have posted, I like the last song the best

Dum spiro spero and kisou are my favorite albums from them, I havent really pay'd much attention to macabre, besides zakuro
post #954 of 1593
Yea rein is my favorite from them, I used to listen bands like signal and screw. My preference changed i guess, I now listen to bands like lynch. , deathgaze , deg (of course) and more western metal like pantera, overkill, amon amarth. I still do listen to screw or unsraw once in a while

Macabre is very difficult to get into, but so rewarding when you do. Melodically, very unattractive to the average listener. It deserves way more than a cursory listen. Some really good ambiance setting and musicality there. Genius really. This is why they've been hailed as such a powerful experimental band.

 

Dum Spiro Spero is such a cohesive album, not like some of the older ones where it's noteworthy track after noteworthy track. The message is clear as day, and we love it. The Blossoming Beezelbub is amongst the most atmospheric track I've heard last year (or '11, forgot when it came out).

Theatrics. Key to many musical performances. And in that sense VK goes above and beyond, stepping over a lot of other genres in the process. Ever see a Luna Sea concert? Outstanding.

 

It's like K-Pop, or pop in general. It's not for the intellectuality, but for the sheer enjoyment and the novelty. The whole pseudo-culture around it all that enthralls. It's also why the fanbase is so wide.

no, I haven't but I was lucky enough to see X Japan when they came to Vancouver and was just blown away, Toshi was just a boss and Yoshiki was just brilliant with Art of Life especially, I still can't believe they played that song

 

I don't think k-pop is that relatable to VK maybe to more poppy bands like sug and an cafe, but I doubt they get as deep in their choices of concept as Versailles or some of the other bands such as Mejibray(this whole sadistic thing, perfectly embodied by the drummer)

In '10? I was there as well. With a show like that, it's crazy not to go.

I cried a lot during Art of Life.

 

A slight misunderstanding, I was not referring to relatability in terms of musicality, rather the experience, fandom and subculture.

Old mainstream classics are the best.
