  3. This thread is made for everyone who wants to look Visual Kei! Let's help each other out by giving advice, tips and tricks. In this thread you can also post links to clothes, makeup products, hair products, jewelry etc. Also, if you want to look like your favourite artist but don't know how to get the look etc we might be able to help you find the right clothes and products! ---------------------------------------------------------- I start with my tips and tricks! I usually get my clothes from Aliexpress. Sometimes I customize regular clothes. Aliexpress is great! Just read the reviews before you buy. I own most of the clothes I post on here! Something I like to do is to get regular cheap pants from H&M or something like that. I only care about the fit and the color of the pants. Then I get some metallic fabric paint, and by using a sponge I just paint the pants to make them look unique. Sometimes I use stencils to make an interesting design on them! Easy way to customize clothes, this works on shirts as well. I also paint on shoes or boots! Here is an example of what the pants could look like when painted: Now over to aliexpress! Very cheap clothes but you can put together great outfits using them! I will link all the clothes under the pictures! Most of those comes in different designs and colors! Shirts and blazers: https://a.aliexpress.com/BmHk99AY https://a.aliexpress.com/eueEm2VE https://a.aliexpress.com/ey7ruNkk https://a.aliexpress.com/em2cTe1w https://a.aliexpress.com/tmEJKPY8 https://a.aliexpress.com/FEkyrOG0 https://a.aliexpress.com/rsxs8RzI Pants: https://a.aliexpress.com/p2zIx7ky https://a.aliexpress.com/2CueBzZA https://a.aliexpress.com/tesYw6zK If you scroll down on the pages for each clothing item you will find related clothes, that way you might find even cooler items! Biker jeans works great for visual kei, also just simple shirts and focusing more on the jewelry, hair and makeup will make you look visual kei!
  4. I have been thinking a lot about why the Visual Kei "trend" outside of Japan faded, just like the emo/scene kid trend did. I miss the old days a lot, I am so tired of all those Kardashian wannabes... no originality, everyone is dressing up the same way and everyone is listening to Ariana Grande etc. It feels like all the subcultures are gone. Feminists are the only ones you see these days who has piercings and colorful hair... which is sad. If you went to the mall about 10 years ago you would see huge gangs of Visual Kei fans hanging out. They were everywhere playing music out loud from their phone speakers, talking about how to get their hair perfectly straight or teased to perfection, the hottest member of their favourite band and they had cute pins on their shirts with band names. I hope I'm not the only one who is missing the old days. I want it back, and I hope you can help me make Visual Kei popular again :(! What caused it to become so popular? I think this question is very important to be able to bring it back again! My thoughts on this is that some people outside of Japan discovered Visual Kei on the internet. Then they started to dress that way. People saw those people in public or in schools etc, and thought they looked cool, asked them what it was all about and then it kind of spread. I saw that happening a lot, me and my friends showed up in school after the summer break 2007 in 7th grade dressed up in Visual Kei after we had discovered Phantasmagoria a month or so earlier through a friend of a friend who was into Visual Kei. After that more and more people at my school started to dress in visual kei and it became super huge in my city. Online we got in touch with other fans across the country and it felt almost religious! Sadly it faded away around 2010... only a small percent is still holding on to it. It's sad! It started to fade when Facebook became more and more popular, I believe. Before that everyone just spent their time online in old forums etc you know. I believe facebook, instagram, twitter and stuff like that killed the subcultures because everyone is exposed to the mainstream and everything that isn't mainstream gets filtered away because people tend to upvote Kardashian related things etc which makes visual kei related things etc harder to discover. I am a member of a lot of visual kei groups on facebook, I follow pages of my favourite artists etc... but when I scroll through my feed about 90% of everything I see is just posts with 100K+ likes about Ariana Grande and things like that. No wonder why Visual Kei is fading more and more, social media etc filters it out even for the most hardcore fans. Same thing on youtube, I use youtube mostly to listen to Visual Kei music or watch art channels. In my feed, recommended videos and related videos I only get videos about James Charles and "10 things you didn't know about Kylie Jenner"... I never even watch or care about that shit. Are we getting brainwashed into becoming mainstream? What is it that Visual Kei doesn't have that James Charles, Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande etc has? I mean... they seam to be so important to everyone and I am getting forced to know everything about them because social media won't show me the stuff that I am interested in, even though 70% of everything I ever do on the internet is Visual Kei related... >___> The new generation can't discover it like we did because social media filters it out! It feels like they want Visual Kei to be forgotten. I mean... we still hear scene kid music playing on the radio, we still hear 90's grunge playing on the radio... but not Visual Kei even though it was just as mainstream back in the day as grunge etc was. Only difference is that Visual Kei isn't dead and new bands are still popping up and the genre is changing/evolving which makes it new and fresh unlike grunge and scene kid music which is exactly the same as it was back then(just more dead). How do we change this? What if we all dress up as visual kei as possible, take the hottest and coolest pictures ever and post everywhere, link Visual Kei related things all over the web and go outside and inspire people? Is that what it takes to make it popular again? Who sets the trends? Who decided that Visual Kei should fade right after it's peak in 2009? Would you be happy if Visual Kei became popular again? Why/why not? What are your thoughts?
  5. Hi, I listened to baude-laire recently and I'm looking similar sounding bands. I know they are influenced by Coaltar of the Deepers and shoegaze. Some Plastic Tree albums comes to my mind, but I'm looking for more Thanks!

  7. As with my earlier outputs, I thought it would be neat to discuss about "interesting" chord progressions in our beloved, visual scene as well! What kind of intriguing progressions (from your POV) you guys have stumbled onto while going through your VK repertoire? As long as you are able to explain your choices, it's all OK...not that this thread would gain enough exposure, lol (I am not gonna hop into another round of "what is VK music" debate and just pinpoint that even in 00s and earlier 10s it was easy to acknowledge imho what's "so VK" and what's "not so VK" in the auditory context.) Prime example or where to start: "Royal road" progression (IV△7→V7→IIIm7→VIm) VK example of this: as far as I have noticed, Gazette's "Sumire" is pretty much about that kind of progression too, no?
  8. This community has reached 10 years already, and has respectively seen the visual scene (especially) evolve, split ways, come back together and keep evolving throughout the course of MH's existence. However, 3 years until the end of this decade is not a long time period, so the existing base of enthusiasts needs to brace themselves for winds of grandiose changes. We have seen the gamut of heavy, light, hard, quirky rock genres being explored by various participants - or even "game changers" in the whole scene. Good observers are quick to point out that there's a certain "pattern" of trends and influences that could affect the course of Visual evolution. So what's this pattern? So, let's kickstart this discussion by providing a few questions where I'd like to see different Monochromium takes - based on your own experiences, interests, observations and perhaps hopes - on how this gargantuan scene would - or SHOULD carry on. I am asking you to define how YOU see the aforementioned "pattern" - as a VK aficionado or as an old grumpy Visual fan: 1) Where and how would you see current, "dominating" branches of VK (e.g. symphonic rock/metal kei, Paracore, "Ains kei" etc. - you name them) progressing during the end of this decade/during the next decade? Could you see some of them fading out, perhaps becoming more dominant or evolving into newer ones during the said course? 2) Do you anticipate more prominent, *current* Japanese non-VK rock trends in visual scene (e.g. Chanty with post-HC/indie influences) during the aforementioned course or do you see the whole scene, or perhaps a huge part of it, becoming more immersed in "nostalgist ideas" instead (e.g. Grieva and "neo-kotekote") ? Do you prefer to see much larger pool of influences in the prospective visual scene or do you prefer to have VK things in the future as they are now - and why? Feel free to write your overall thoughts on visual "trend evolution" outside of these questions as well.

    Hey there! I'd like to request the lyrics from this awesome band! On the net, I can't find anything D: would someone be so kind to share booklet scans/kanji, so that I can romanize them and maybe translate them? Thanks in advance!

I romanized everything myself (this post will be edited with the other lyrics later ) 1. 人生ゲーム 嘘つきばかりの「人生ゲーム」 1度目の人生は売れてないダメホスト たくさんの諭吉で気持ちを買ってみせるの 2度目の人生は一般人のリーマンで いつの間にか私 物足りなくなっちゃうの ああ…なんて滑稽なんだろう… 金で人を気持ちを買えるはずないのに… あなたと私の「人生ゲーム」 お金と時間を引き換えに あなたと私の「人生ゲーム」 いやいや体を売りました あなたと私の「人生ゲーム」 お金と体を引き換えに あなたと私の「人生ゲーム」 まだまだあなたを試します 3度目の人生はイケメン風なバーテンダー 付き合ってはいけない3Bに手を出しちゃうの 4度目の人生はちょっと売れてるバンドマン 私のこと歌詞に書いて歌ってくれるの ああ…なんて滑稽なんだろう… どうせいつかおまえ捨てられるのに… あなたと私の「人生ゲーム」 お金と時間を引き換えに あなたと私の「人生ゲーム」 いやいや体を売りました あなたと私の「人生ゲーム」 お金と体を引き換えに あなたと私の「人生ゲーム」 まだまだあなたを試します 「全ては神様の気まぐれ」 Romaji: Usotsuki bakari no "jinsei GE-MU" Ichidome no jinsei wa uretenai DAME HOSUTO Takusan no yukichi de kimochi o katte miseru no Nidome no jinsei wa ippanjin no RI-MAN de Itsu no ma ni ka watashi mono tarinaku nacchau no Aa...nante kokkei nan'darou... Kane de hito o kimochi o kaeru hazu nai no ni... Anata to watashi no "jinsei GE-MU" Okane to jikan o hikikae ni Anata to watashi no "jinsei GE-MU" Iya iya karada o urimashita Anata to watashi no "jinsei GE-MU" Okane to karada o hikikae ni Anata to watashi no "jinsei GE-MU" Mada mada anata o tameshimasu Sandome no jinsei wa IKEMEN fuu na BA-TENDA- Tsukiatte wa ikenai 3B ni te o dashichau no Yondome no jinsei wa chotto ureteru BANDOMAN Watashi no koto kashi ni kaite utatte kureru no Aa...nante kokkei nan'darou... Douse itsuka omae suterareru no ni... Anata to watashi no "jinsei GE-MU" Okane to jikan o hikikae ni Anata to watashi no "jinsei GE-MU" Iya iya karada o urimashita Anata to watashi no "jinsei GE-MU" Okane to karada o hikikae ni Anata to watashi no "jinsei GE-MU" Mada mada anata o tameshimasu "Subete wa kamisama no kimagure" Bonus: the choir you hear throughout the whole song is a part of the "Ode to Joy" by Beethoven so I'll write it under this. "Freude, schöner Götterfunken, Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligthum!" 2. はぁ…もう病む Kanji: 午前10時ファミボお決まりです! チケ発に捧ぐ週末の朝 でもね?私だけ10時じゃないの… どこで見ていても目が合うの… あ?!もうウザイよ! 1 「遅れて登場!私はオキニ!」 2 「ムダにオシャレしたあの子はだあれ?」 3 「上から下までジロジロ見んなよ!」 死 「私だけじゃないあの子は誰なの…」 「え?おまえに関係ない」 「はぁ…もう病む」口癖になる あの子もこの子も大嫌い 「はぁ…もう病む」今日も生きます 繋がり数えて「1、2、3、死…」 「はぁ…もう病む」口癖になる 棒立ち逆最絶対ソレじゃん! 「はぁ…もう病む」今日も生きます バンギャル万歳! 「1、2、3、死!」 午後16時OPEN始まりです! 女同士の裏格付け でもね?私だけ参加しないの… あなたたちと一緒にしないで? あ?!もうウザイよ! 1 「大量購入!私チェキ廃!」 2 「この前のアイツまたギリギリかよ…」 3 「八万美人なあの子は繋がり?」 死 「私だけの彼近づかないでよ!」 「え?おまえそろそろ黙れよ?」 「はぁ…もう病む」口癖になる あの子もこの子も大嫌い 「はぁ…もう病む」今日も生きます 繋がり数えて「1、2、3、死…」 「はぁ…もう病む」口癖になる 棒立ち逆最絶対ソレじゃん! 「はぁ…もう病む」今日も生きます バンギャル万歳! 「1、2、3、死!」 Romaji: Gozen 10ji FAMIBO okimari desu! CHIKE hatsu ni sasagu shuumatsu no asa Demo ne? Watashi dake 10ji janai no... Doko de miteite mo me ga au no... A?! Mou UZAI yo! 1 "Okurete toujou!

"Haa...mou yamu" kuchiguse ni naru Ano ko mo kono ko mo daikirai "Haa...mou yamu" kyou mo ikimasu Tsunagari kazoete "1, 2, 3, shi..." "Haa...mou yamu" kuchiguse ni naru Boudachi gyakusai zettai SORE jan! "Haa...mou yamu" kyou mo ikimasu BANGYARU banzai! "1, 2, 3, shi!" Gogo 16ji OPEN hajimari desu! Jodoushi no ura kakuzuke Demo ne?

Watashi wa CHEKI hai!" 2 "Kono mae no AITSU mata GIRIGIRI ka yo..." 3 "Hachiman bijin na ano ko wa tsunagari?" Shi "Watashi dake no katachikazukanai de yo!" "E? Omae sorosoro damare yo?" "Haa...mou yamu" kuchiguse ni naru Ano ko mo kono ko mo daikirai "Haa...mou yamu" kyou mo ikimasu Tsunagari kazoete "1, 2, 3, shi..."

"1, 2, 3, shi!" 3. 捨て猫 Kanji: 拾われた私 飼い慣らされてた 思い通り騙されていた… 「好き」という言葉簡単に言うけど 徐々に徐々に本気にしてた… 狂ったように 暴れ暴れ暴れ暴れ 気づいてはまた 泣いて泣いて泣いて泣いて そんなあなたは ダメ男ダメ男ダメ男ダメ男 ハマる私は ダメ女ダメ女ダメ女ダメ女 「捨て猫みたい」だって馬鹿にしてまた笑うんでしょ? 「もっと堕として?」 「身」も「心」も「金」も捧げてもきっと意味ないんでしょ? 私は「捨て猫…」 ”お前は俺の駒でしかない もっと使える女になれよ 楽にしてやるから 早く堕ちるとこまで堕ちてしまえよ” 堕ちた私を見てあなたは今何思うの? 「簡単」でしょ? そうやって女を何人も騙してきたんでしょ? 「出会わなければよかった…」 「捨て猫みたい」だって馬鹿にしてまた笑うんでしょ? 「もっと堕として?」 「身」も「心」も「金」も捧げてもきっと意味ないんでしょ? 私は「捨て猫…」 Romaji: Hirowareta watashi kainarasareteta Omoi-doori damasareteita...

Kurutta you ni abare abare abare abare Kizuite wa mata naite naite naite naite Sonna anata wa DAMEO DAMEO DAMEO DAMEO Hamaru watashi wa DAMEJO DAMEJO DAMEJO DAMEJO "Suteneko mitai" datte baka ni shite mata waraun'desho?

    LM.C to perform at Anime Friends Brazil in 07/17! For tickets: http://ticketpop.com.br/anime-friends/ More Information: https://www.facebook.com/animefriendsbr/ Official website of the event: http://www.animefriends.com.br/
  15. We do have that inspiration thread somewhere already, but in any case, I thought this would be neato as a separate, dedicated thread: Since we acknowledge the fact variety of VK acts has been influenced somewhat or a lot by their non-VK compatriots and senseis, how would we approach the reverse situation? This thread is basically about (renowned) non-vk acts or artists, that were influenced to some/the very extent by our loved visual scene (VK oyajis, possible VK (ex-)household names etc.) - preferably with proofs/examples E.g. Ling Tosite Sigure Not the first band where you'd look for particular VK influences but quelle surprise: the band - or TK and Pierre in this case - have been VK aficionados ever since their early youth/pre-teens! Almost each and every interview revolving around their album-specific/overall influences had TK gone on heat about Luna Sea or Pierre having his X Japan/Yoshiki/Luna Sea (again) fanboy moment and rants about how VK should be "break free of stigmas". Whereas TK is basically the sole songwriter of LTS, there's a great handful of LTS songs where TK and Pierre implemented drum patterns, song structures or even riffs that are rather akin to speedy Luna Sea anthems. Sample song which was regarded as "one of the most "VK" efforts by TK" by various critics - from the same album which was inspired by Luna Sea's biggest breakthrough, "MOTHER" (see: Tower.jp link). Some references: http://tower.jp/article/feature/2009/05/14/100036652/100036663/100036667 JaM - session influences + overall influences Pierre and his 90s VK manifesto? - There was also some joint interview by TK and some dude on sigure.jp in which TK's youth and LUNA SEA influences were briefly discussed, I will make sure to update once I find it...

    Hi Everyone, I'm Steve, a graphic designer from Canada who's been into Visual Kei for about 10 years. I'm new to the forums, but I've been creeping everything for a little over 2 years (I'm shy, or stupid or something). I'm finally working from home, so I figured I'd have more time to waste on the internet, and thus, get active on MH! My top 3 bands that I couldn't live without: 1. heidi. 2. Plastic Tree 3. lynch. I like to consider the 2004-2009ish era my personal 'golden age' for VK, so most of my favorite bands are from that era and are as follows. Those are my top three in order, but the rest are a toss up! PIERROT cali≠gari 12012 DEATHGAZE D'espairsRay deadman 9GOATS BLACK OUT DELUHI MERRY girugämesh 蜉蝣 (Kagerou) The GazettE -OZ- Sadie NoGoD ケミカルピクチャーズ 人格ラヂオ 陰陽座 (Onmyo-za) As far as 'newer' bands go (I'm getting old), these guys are alright by me: AvelCain Develop One's Faculties DEZERT DIV HOLLOWGRAM KEEL My BACTERIA HEAT IsLAND Umbrella 黒百合と影 (Kuroyuri to Kage) - - - I like regular J-Rock too (AKFG, FACT, etc.) and as far as English music goes, I mostly like 90's era shoegazing goodness (Ride, Chapterhouse, mbv, etc.) and a little Ringo Deathstarr/Fleeting Joys. Japanese Rock has been a part of my life for a really long time, and I owe it to sites like this for keeping the love alive! I'm glad to be a part of it nao. Sorry for the band-spam! I like lists and paragraphs. See you in the forums
  17. Ever had this moment when you spun certain non-vk record (while chilling around without our lovely j-music...we tend to have these phases too hey)...you were reminded of your old Japanese favorites? I am pretty sure most of you did have that kind of moment at least once! So the idea behind this thread is simple: You post specific non-Japanese releases (compilations, albums...) which might occasionally bug you with reminiscence/elements akin to your Japanese favorites. It doesn't have to be legit influence, so feel free to open up with your discoveries! No one's gonna judge here anyway, right? Example:
  18. Pretsy

    Most music enthusiasts and even casual listeners are more likely to pinpoint their favorite albums from artists' "first steps" - like you'd normally seeing someone e.g. placing Despa's debut on a pedestal and getting zealous over it and etc. But are there any best bits that came out from artists after many years - or even decades of experience? List a few - or many (if you want) fav albums of your fav artists when their experience spanned for a long time. Example: Feel free to mention your fav late-career albums!
