Yes there's a Jrock thread, but Visual kei's different Surprised

Visual kei (ヴィジュアル系 vijuaru kei?, literally "visual style") refers to a movement among Japanese musicians,that is characterized by the use of make-up, elaborate hair styles and flamboyant costumes, often, but not always, coupled with androgynous aesthetics.

The "kei" is japanese for style of type, meaning "visual style music" The music ranges from 80's-esque goth rock, to heavy metal to punk and usually some combo of the 3.

Famous bands:
Girugamesh, MUCC, X Japan, Dir en Grey, Moi dix Mois, The Gazette, Sadie, Versailles ,Malice Mizer, Nightmare, D'espairsRay, Miyavi, An Cafe, 12012, Alice Nine, Kagerou, Panic Channel, Exist Trace..

so are you a fan? Very Happy
