Has anyone heard about Masashi and Yuki leaving Jupiter?

I'm kinda on the fence about bc it's a good opportunity for them to do other things but at the same time I feel like this'll create an even bigger rift for Versailles and it'll be harder for them to come back together.
>implying artist actually come back from hiatus
>denial: hard mode
>>
>>8727363
I knew about this shit for months now. Japanese fans speculated about this and they got it right. The one they didn't speculate about leaving Jupiter was Yuki though. Masashi for sure they got him right.
Versailles is coming back for one night with Kamijo in his finale tour in zepp tokyo.
>>
>>8727375
I kinda figured Masashi would want to go but still...
I mean like full revival come back, not those one off shows
>>
>>8727390
i don't think that will happen anytime soon. Kamijo seems happy being a solo artist, he's wanted to be solo for so long. Curious, why would you think Masashi would want to go? i think yuki followed because he gets along well with masashi.
>>
>>8727395
Just listening to some of Masashi's previous bands, it seems like he likes to explore different styles. With him being in Versailles and then Jupiter, I don't think he's been able to get creative since most of the music is written by Hizaki. I get there's a limit between changing styles and compromising the sound of the band overall but it seems like maybe he really does want change.
>>
>>8727417
Then if that's the case I'm glad masashi left. He's a nice guy, he should go on and experiment some more. Let's see what he comes up with. there are rumors that masashi is leaving to join kamijo solo act as permanent back up but, who knows really.
>>
just curious, are there vk sub styles besides Nagoya kei and oshare kei?

>>8727428
I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case. I was really happy that Masashi was on bass for Kamijo during his tour this year. He's a great bassist.

I wonder whether there's been any sort of rift between Masashi and Yuki, and Hizaki and Teru? If you look at Hizaki's band history, they don't seem to last long aside for Versailles.

Interestingly enough however, on Kamijo's video that he posted today with regard to Paris and Brazil, he announced himself as 'Kamijo of Versailles'.
>>
>>8727363
Jupiter is a guitar cluster fuck. They probably got sick of being second fiddle to Hizaki and Teru and wanted to do something on their own.
>>
>>8738642
He has always announced himself as that. His twitter even still say's that he is the vocalist for Versailles. Its like he wants to be in Versailles while still being solo.
>>
>>8721171

>>
>>8738653
Biggest issue is that Zin cannot sing for toffee. Good instrumentals ruined by the insanely weak vocals.
Hmm.... seeing as it's just Hizaki and Teru again, any bets that this is going to respawn Hizaki Grace Project?

There are some bands in the scene you might like. Try bands like Mejibray, Nocturnal Bloodlust, D.I.D, Kuroyuri to Kage, The Black Swan, and DADROMA.
All those bands have a pretty heavy sound to them.
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>8738959
Lynch., Sadie, Nocturnal Bloodlust, Galneryus, and Mucc come to mind. I think Sadie is on hiatus tho
>>
>>8739024
As would I, even though I was super disappointed with the last album.
>>
>>8739935
Versailles could of went out with a bang instead they went out with a whimper. I wasnt a huge fan of any of their releases after Holy Grail. They just seemed to lose something after that.
>>
>>8739110
>Nocturnal Bloodlust
>Genres: Visual Kei, deathcore

Well, this may as well exist. They're not bad at least.
>>
>>8740038
I wonder if some of the problem was that they burnt themselves out. They did an insane amount, pretty much constantly. Too much in to little time, without giving themselves any sort of break. From the last album, the only songs I really liked were Brave, Ayakashi and Truth. It's such a shame, as Holy Grail had some amazing songs, especially Masquerade.
>>
>>8740123
I feel Kamijo's voice sort of shit the bed. It wasn't as strong in their last album. And it was absolutely horrible during the last live. Everything about their hiatus just felt so rushed.
>>
>>8740321
I have strange feeling that Kamijo might have had vocal surgery in the hiatus that versailles went. Maybe he wanted to continue his career without any vocal surgery, in the end he changed his mind and got it anyway?
>>
>>8740442
It would make sense if he did. He does sound better now, but still not as good as he was mid-Versailles. I feel that was his peak and now he is just sort of fizzling out.
>>
>>8740321
>>8740442
>>8740687

That cold make sense. I saw him during his solo tour, and he sounded a lt better than he did on the last Versailles album. If he's over strained his voice by the band pushing themselves too much and performing too often without giving themselves a break.
>>
>>8740749
I saw him as well on his tour. And he did sound better, but he still seemed to have a hard time hitting those high notes he used to be able to hit. I'm wondering how he will sound for his tour final. Cause that is going to be an amazing line up.
>>
>>8740749
Adding Kamijo to the list of vocalist that don't know how to treat their damn voice.

Why do these guys always do it to themselves? I get that they wanna keep on producing stuff and performing but they could at least take on a vocal coach if they do
>>
>>8742156

I wonder if it's related to them performing/travelling etc way too often as well in general. I know someone who works on the airlines, and it used to give them a bad throat. Kamijo just seems to have been on the go way too much. I'd have hopethat he knew how to look after his voice after being in the business for so long.
>>
>>8742353
I think he just sort of needs to take a break for a while. He has being going non-stop for so long. Im not surprised his voice burned out.
>>
>>8742353
Getting a sore throat from air travel had more to do with being on a plane for a couple of hours with recycled air, not much can really stop that. This strained throat has more to do with them overexerting themselves, whether it be over performing or improper singing or, most likely, a mix of the two.

Just because they've been singing for a while doesn't mean that they know how to take care of their voice. I mean just look at Kyo and Hizumi.
>>
>>8743680
I know that, but a sore throat from flying lots and then trying to perform doesn't exactly help either.

>>
>>
>>8743680
I do think that Kamijo can get better though. I mean look at Kyo he really fucked up his voice from all the bellowing, screeching, and other harsh stuff he does and on top of that I don't think he was really taking care of his voice at the time. But now he is singing a lot better and actually being able to maintain a steady voice throughout concerts. I highly doubt Kamijo fucked his voice up as bad a Kyo so I have hope.

I am actually surprised Cure still exists considering that many magazines of more popular jfashions died or changed the subject.

>>8748143
I think Cure and Shoxx are pretty much the only magazines left but they're much more focused on the music side of things now

On the topic of Cure tho, does anyone know where you can get Cure Color? I haven't be able to mimic some of the colors all that well

Still more than there are left for actual Gyaru.

Just search "Cureカラートリートメント" but importing liquid things is a bitch.

>>8748399
I feel like as long as there's a music scene in Japan, VK is always gonna be a thing. Since it's not purely a fashion trend like gyaru, it's not gonna die out.

Thank you, anon! I have a friend coming back from Japan pretty soon so I'll ask if she can bring it back for me

>>8749179

Buuuut maybe new Kaya solo material now
>>
>>8749666
Someone said Iori caused the break-up cause he cheated on his wife and the Japanese fans petitioned for him to leave the band. :/
>>
>>8749940
Especially bring back Blast. I'd be pleased with bringing back Cocklobin and even settle for Siva or Phobia...

>>8750041
If bands broke up every time a member cheated on their significant other with a groupie, there would be no bands. Even if it did turn out that he's a typical band guy, Iori has been one of my favorite composers for about 15 years, despite Femme Fatale being a huge disappointment. Idgaf who is fucking who, so I'm not about to boycott him over that.
>>
>>8750041
I can say that this is also true, there are too many screencaps and info out there to deny it. Iori is the main cause the band broke up. The thing why they are so pissed is that he cheated on his wife with a band fan who would go to lives about it. This fan isn't exactly very smart and wasn't careful with any of the info. They want him to apologize. The japanese fans were rude to him in lives and were even throwing stuff at him. There was no chance, in Japan if you do one bad thing it will stick with you forever. The band chose to disband instead of replacing Iori, they felt it wouldn't be right. He even said to the girl in screencaps " we cannot be seen together because I will get fired". The members didn't know, also he was so stupid. He should have thought things through carefully or at least hide it better.
>>
Sorry if this is a common question, but I'm not sure where else to ask where people might be knowledgeable on the subject.
Are there any VK (or even other type) bands who have a sound like pre-Beast of Blood Malice Mizer? I especially liked the album Merveilles, but I've never been able to find anything else with a similar vibe. I dipped into VK a few years ago but found the sounds to be very different to that, so I'm not sure where to go.
>>
>>8750444
Have you checked out Kamijo? He was originally a roadie for Malice Mizer, and has had a few bands which have a bit of a French pop/gothic metal vibe to them at times. Lareine, Versailles, and now as a solo artist.
>>
>>8750444
Lareine, D, and maybe Matenrou Opera are gonna be pretty similar in sound.
>>
>>8750564
>>8750579
Thank you both! I'll check those out

you might give dir en greys new album arche a listen to, i didn't like most of the new dir en grey stuff but this album made me like them a lot now.
>>
>>8750948
heard it but I think it's just so overwritten... I don't like the way Kyo puts tons of vocal lines in the songs (like some weird high opera-like stuff along the regular stuff) and the song structures seem almost random mostly
But I guess it's better than dum spiro spero
>>
>>8750954
I actually really liked those vocal lines, i thought it was something softer but better written than dum spiro spero . Arche is my favorite thing theyve put out in a long time. What did you like from them? I liked the Piass too.
>>
>>8750976
Honestly I was (and sort of still am) a 100% fanboy for them from the beginning till and including ouroboros. Even downloaded the Gauze and Macabre fan video stuff from p2p back in the day and got into their personalities and all that. But somehow I feel like after ouroboros, the emotion in the music just wasn't the same and they're all just doing it because they don't know what else to do. Like yes, Arche is a step back in the right direction, but I wonder if they wouldn't be happier apart by now.

Arche was amazing, it is one of my favorites by them. And even though it gets hate I did like Dum Spiro Spero, it was a bit tiresome and repetitive but it had some good songs. I think they have really evolved as a band, and it is definitely for the better.

What are the standards for Visual Kei? Besides the look what about the music makes it v-kei? I know a lot of bands cross genres with metal (Dir en grey, sadie.), goth (Malice Mizer) and other pop (An Cafe, SuG) but when does it start and stop being visual kei

Moi Dix Mois announced a new album to be released in 2016. Nothing else is really known, but its good to see they are still putting out music

Holy heck, fuck yeah!

Yes, I am excited. I hope it's not more covers of Juka-era songs and all originals songs.

Source on this? I can't find anything on Mana's blog or Twitter about it.

I miss when someone did an English translation of Mana's blog via LJ, it was so nice having it come up on my friends page.

It is mentioned at the Moi dix Mois one-man live "Dis inferno Ⅷ~LAST YEAR PARTY~" at Shibuya duo MUSIC EXCHANGE on 12/12/2015 that their new album is planned to be released in 2016, although details have not yet been finalized

God MiA has such a bird nose. I don't understand how he can think it looks ok,
>>
>>8723883
They've lost all appeal without Yuki. Miki's voice isn't outstanding, but when they were together they made it work well. But now that they used another unimpressive voice to replace Yuki, their music is so disappointing and uninteresting. And why is Nika always hanging off of someone in pictures? You're not cute like Yuki, stop trying to be. Yes, I mad.

I just discovered R-Shitei a few days ago. I heard their song 帝都に死す on a commercial for something and searched until I found it. I love the whole mad carnival sound to it. Their earlier work, very different in style, isn't bad either.

I feel the same way. They've been one of my favorite v-kei bands for a long time but I haven't really loved anything they've released since Namonaki mori no yumegatari. Glad to hear that Asagi is releasing another solo, though!

So Versailles' OHP just updated with a new banner of them being awake. I wonder if they are hinting to a come back.
>>

Plz

What is OHP?

This was the picture they had before. I'm really hoping this means a more permanent come back rather than a one night revival.
>>
>>8774000
Durr, sorry. I really hope so, it would be a dream come true. Especially with MdM releasing a new album next year (please don't let fall through).

So the Gazette announced a show in California for next year. Anyone going to go?

>>8774197
I guess people were posting on tumblr. But when I just checked the link the page was gone. But from what I was seeing a band called The Gazette was announced.
>>

Honestly I'm a bit skeptical since they haven't officially released any info about but if they are coming then sign me the fuck up.

It was announced on the regency's website, but I think they took it down. If you go on the gazette tag on tumblr there are screenshots.
>>
>>8775325
I asked around, and some of my promotion friends said they haven't heard anything. Plus the venue is to small for them. So they are thinking its another band.
>>
>>8775400
Ah I see. Though I don't think the venue is too small. Dir en grey has played there before and they're a big band
>>
>>8775421
I dont know. Its just what Ive been hearing. Im still hoping that a tour will come. It seemed a bit odd that Project Dark Age ended with just a new single and not a big announcement. Maybe they have one more thing up their sleeve, and its a world tour. Only time will tell.
>>
>>8775400
regency ballroom is decent sized. not as big as, say, the warfield (where miku expo is going to play), and maybe equal with the fillmore, but big enough. and hell, dir en grey just played at slim's and that thing is like a closet compared to the regency. i don't think dir en grey sold out the regency

I'm really hoping they make a major comeback announcement. It would be amazing
>>
>>8775705
It wouldn't make sense for them just to do one show with what they are asking to come over. The want a lot of money just to come over to the US. So they would need to do multiple shows just to make up for the money spent
>>
>>8777715
If they were doing a world tour, it wouldn't be uncommon to do one or two shows in the US instead of a full tour before heading to South America or Canada.

I think he looks younger because his face is chubbier lately. I still believe at least little of photoshop has been involved on his eyes, they look way bigger compared to how they looked when the pics were just taken.

For me that's a good thing. I've been listening since they started and liked lyrical sympathy from the get go so more of the same was a positive. Then again I listen to nightwish, within temptation, and blind guardian and they don't exactly evolve either.
>>
>>8784344

I only listened to their earlier stuff, I remember liking one of the songs written by the guy from Aikaryu (Teru?). Hizaki's songs were always boring to me. He's got good guitar technique but he isn't too creative with it.
>>
>>
WELP...the Versailles live stream only went as far as a band member introduction...I was under the impression we would actually get to see them play from all the Twitter updates...
>>
>>8785838
Same here, if they were just going to show that than why show anything at all? It was really dumb.
>>
>>8785838
Ah shit I guess their OHP does kind of say it, but I thought it was referencing the rest of Kamijo's concert and not their performance. Oh well...
>>
But guys...VERSAILLES REVIVAL CONCERT IN AUGUST. That was the news!
>>
>>8785852
Agreed! Best news of the year for me definitely.
>>
>>8785852
Im so happy about it! That news made my year!
>>
>>8785852
Anyone else think the comeback is related to Yuki and Masashi leaving Jupiter?
>>
>>8786052
That was my initial thought when I heard that news. They'll be leaving 4 months before Versailles' return. That may give them time to write some new stuff. I wonder what will become of both bands? I did like Jupiter, but they don't hold a candle to Versailles.
>>
>>8785838
I'm glad I took a nap and woke up instead of staying up all night. Went back to sleep right afterwards
>>
From what my friend was telling me the Versailles set list was pretty short. They played songs like The Revenant Choir, Aristocrats Symphony, Ascendead Master, and God Palace. But they switched out the members. Mostly Masashi and Yuki were switched in and out.


And I guess Versailles is releasing a new CD next year. I'm beyond excited for new Versailles music. Its been so long.

>>8786787
I think this guy really doesn't know what to do with his hair anymore.

They had camera's there recording everything so I'm pretty sure a DVD will be coming out sometime in the future.

>>8787218
Hope they do, mostly because of Lareine since I got to know them too late.

how do you think these guys deal with sweaty costumes?

i was thinking of wearing nice vkei to a concert, but didn't want to ruin it, then realized the performers are wearing more elaborate outfits that surely cost more. so why am i afraid of a little sweat and beer?

>>8829223
they deal with it because they understand vkei comes with the looks deal too.I I used to dress vkei to concerts but then i got extremely lazy. That's why many try to just do a light costume with light cloth that isn't too thick.
