Day 5 - Girugämesh

Alrighty, here's the 5th band, Girugamesh.
Girugamesh are a Japanese Visual-Kei band, formed in 2003, mixing J-rock with Electronica in most of their songs.

The members are Satoshi (Vocals), Nii (Guitar), Shuu (Bass) & Ryo (Drums).

This is the live version of their song "Puzzle", featuring an intro played by Ryo! (He's a DJ too)
Love this song..It always calms me down, makes me see things straight instead of freaking out like a fool.

Hope you enjoy it, guys! ^^

Day 4 - The GazettE

4th day,'s The GazettE!

Formed in 2002, the members were Ruki (Vocals), Uruha (Guitar), Aoi (Guitar), Reita (Bass) & Yune (Drums) but Yune left after some time and was replaced by Kai in 2003.

The vocalist, Ruki, is insanelly well-known and considered a fashion-icon, so if you mention him to some random girl, you have 85% chances of she fainting. xD

Uruha has some great guitar-solos...You gotta love it. (he's the blonde-guy that looks like Cloud from FinalFantasy xD)

This song is called Reila, its one of their ballads...

I just love it (specially the guitar-solos)
Check it out!

Day 3 - D'espairsRay

Third day, third band... Today, I'll show you one of my favorite bands! Great huh?

D'espairsRay, formed in 1999, Japan.
Their line-up has remained the same since then - Hizumi (Vocals), Karyu (Guitar) Zero (Bass) & Tsukasa (Drums)

It's a shame that Hizumi had some problems with his throat, so they're on a hiatus at the moment T_T...

This song is pretty agressive, and It's kinda recent, so I hope you enjoy it!

Day 2 - Alice Nine

One more day, one more cool song to share with you guys!
This time, I bring you Alice Nine with one of their most recent songs entitled Senkou.

Alice Nine is a Visual-Kei band formed in 2004, Japan.
They have a lighter, and somehow more extravagant look compared to "PanicChannel", and they might be a bit softer than "your-usual-bands" but I love their style, both musically and visually. ^^

The members are Shou, Hiroto, Tora, Saga & Nao (Vocals/Guitar/Guitar/Bass/Drums).

I know this might not interest you, but Shou is one of my fav vocalists and a big influence for me :3 (He is also a great person!)

Alright, enjoy!
(Pay close attention to 3:20 onwards...LISTEN TO THAT LAST NOTE HE HOLDS @.@ now that's what I call a shiver!)

Day 1 - Panic Channel

Alright guys, here it is!

First song I'll share with you is named "Mujou Mayaku" by the band PanicChannel, a Visual-Kei band formed in Japan in November 2002.

For those of you who never heard of Visual-Kei bands, they're japanese musicians who focus GREATLY in the visual of the band.
Some people say that they focus more on the visual than the music itself, but if you listen to bands of that genre (for example, this one) you'll notice that it's not quite like that...

They focus alot in their songs: They have a great vocalist, you gotta love his voice and how he reads some lines along the song instead of just singing them. (Sounds poetic) and they have great guitar-solos in most of their songs.
