Basically I like Japanese culture, their technology, art and language. I've blogged about some Japanese bands. Also now, I want to share my interest about some japanese rock bands/Visual Kei (ヴィジュアル系). I've heard a famous J-Rock band like L'Arc-en-Ciel before, they're awesome. 

Mostly I like band or singer because of their song and music. Their appearance is a bonus for me in enjoying their music. But surely, bands with good appearance are more attractive. 

First, lynch.

They make me interested with them when I accidentaly watched their MV "ETERNITY" on YouTube. 

Detail of the members:

Hazuki (葉月) – lead vocals (2004-present), bass (studio only, 2004-2010)
Reo (玲央) – lead guitar, backing vocals (2004-present)
Asanao (晁直) – drums (2004-present)
Yusuke (悠介) – rhythm guitar, backing vocals (2006-present)
Akinori (明徳) - bass (2010-present)

Formed in 2004 in Nagoya, they changed their bassist few times. Honestly I like their current bassist Akinori. The band's concept is "uniting heavy music with beautiful melodies". (source) Few days ago they changed their website main picture, below is their new photo.

OK, next is the GazettE

I love their appearance in the above photo, they wear simple black outfits and no extreme make up, with great hair color. 

the GazettE formed in 2002, 2 years earlier than lynch. Originally known as Gazette (ガゼット Gazetto), is a Japanese visual kei rock band from Kanagawa. The band is currently signed to Sony Music Records. Details of the members are:

Ruki (ルキ) – lead vocals, occasional guitars (2002–present)
Uruha (麗) – lead guitar, backing vocals (2002–present)
Aoi (葵) – rhythm guitar, lead guitar, backing vocals (2002–present)
Reita (れいた) – bass, keyboards, piano, backing vocals (2002–present)
Kai (戒) – band leader, drums, percussion, backing vocals (2003–present)

They had Yune as their drummer from 2002 - 2003. (source) Their songs are good, I like "PLEDGE" (released in December 2010) the most. When I listen to this song, it makes me "drown".

You also can get PLEDGE in the TOXIC album. Toxic is the fifth studio album by the GazettE. It was released on October 5, 2011 in Japan and includes four singles: "Shiver", "Red", "Pledge", and "Vortex".
