FINAL UPDATE [31 May 2005|11:34pm]

goodliar
Vo. 緋絽 ⇒ gossip
Gu. 賢 ⇒ n/a
Ba. 凌 ⇒ †
Gu. 伶姫 ⇒ KuRt
Dr. 学 ⇒ 彩冷える (サポート)

All former members of Visage have started new projects, except for satoru. I checked his personal homepage a few days ago and he said that he was 'scheduled' to be in a new band by the end of march. Of course I wish him luck!

However, this i also the end of this Visage-community. Please everyone, don't forget about this marvellous band. I am already working on a community for hiro's new band gossip. For an excellent KuRt-community be sure to visit juuran_circus.

That's all I guess. To all members of this community - thank you for joining!
ありがとうございました! m(_ _)m

long time no update ^^;;
i finally got my hands on KuRt's first single 「折り畳み式おじいちゃん」
here's a little review:

「折り畳み式おじいちゃん」(oritatami shiki o-jii-chan) [2005.12.01] ★★★☆☆

01. 擾乱サーカス(jouran CIRCUS) (5:20) ★★★☆☆
starts off with distorted drums and blends into a heavy but somewhat groovy guitar-riff. the tenten starts singing and the song goes downhill =_= no really, i like what the other bandmembers do, but when listening to tenten singing i can really imagine him sitting in the recording studio with a totally red head nearly suffocating whilst singing. one positive thing that can be said about KuRt is that they're not as soft as i expected. starting around the 3:50 mark there's a very very cool latin-style acoustic guitar solo (thx so much ryouki *_*) which rounds this song up quite well.

02. ずぶ濡れジャンキー(zubunuwa JUNKIE) (3:57) ★★☆☆☆
this song could've been good with a different vocalist. tenten's singing is really disturbing in this song. fortunately enough ryouki makes up for it with a nice guitar solo. i think KuRt's problem is that the instruments all venture into different directions. this is actually a good thing but such bands require a good vocalist. with tenten responsible for the vocal duties KuRt should probably stick to song where the instruments support tenten's singing =_=

03. 折り畳み式おぢいちゃん(oritatami shiki o-jii-chan) (5:03) ★★★★☆
MUCH better! great instrument play and even though tenten's vocals are still quite shaky and off-key i really like this song. it's more melodic than the two previous tracks and has some very nice and calm moments. at 3:05 there's a very cool guitar solo by ryouki - definitely a highlight! in retrospect i can say that KuRt have a lot of potential. if they manage to stick to a style which equally accentuates tenten's voice as well as the other member's instruments they will definitely grow on you ^o^

[ mood | ~> REVERSAL THEATER IS UP! ]

【ルーシーモノストーンズ】
Vo.緋絽(ex.Visage)
Gt.楓(Calorze)
Gt.遥(ex.ジャッカル)
Ba.游兎(ex.JOKER)
Dr.雅美(ex.Faust)

slight lineup-change for hiro's session band LUCY MONOSTONES - former guitarist kaname(dystopia) has been replaced by kaede of Calorze. furthermore kinarura's dokodemoDORA has been replaced by masami (ex.FAUST). it has also been announced that their schedule has been extended into mid-february. their first live appearance in february will be at the ~漆黒のシンフォニー~ (shikkoku SYMPHONY) session-band-'rally'. seeing how hiro immediately participated in sessions after visage disbanded makes me wonder whether he'll search for a new band with the same vigour x3

[ mood | ~> REVERSAL THEATER IS UP! ]

賢(satoru), former guitarist of visage will be involved in a new band project called わかめ高校:

【わかめ高校】
Vo.タケル(ex.ぐりむ)
Gt.賢(ex.Visage)
Ba.マヤ(ex.ドレミ團)
Dr.礼(ex.餞)

actually wakame koukou's lineup is quite impressing: ex.grimm's takeru on vocals, ex.visage's satoru on guitar, ex.doremidan's maya on bass and ex.hanamuke's rei on drums. now i'm not sure whether this is just a session band or not. seeing how none of the members are involved in other projects i think it is safe to assume that this is a new band... i sure hope that it is ô.oUU

学(manabu), former drummer of visage is now support-drummer for 彩冷える. seeing how manabu is easily one of the best drummers in visual kei i think he'd even cut the edge as a full-time member.

伶希(ryouki), the former guitarist of visage has formed a new band along with ex.members of 餞~ハナむケ。~ and 美空. don't ask me why they chose the 'awesome' name KuRt though -__-;;

【KuRt】
Vo.てんてん(ex.餞~ハナむケ。~)
Gt.伶希(ex.Visage)
Gt.癒茉(ex.餞~ハナむケ。~)
Ba.乱丸(ex.美空)
Dr.規明(ex.美空)

so the complete lineup is: tenten on vocals, ryouki and yuma on guitar, ranmaru on bass and kiaki on drums.

they will release their first CD on 2005.12.01:

「折り畳み式おじいちゃん」(oritatami shiki o-jii-chan) [2005.12.01]

let's hope that they're somewhat worthwile.. *cough*

on hiro's personal homepage another live-date for LUCY MONOSTONES was announced.
they will be playing 高田馬場エリア on the 1st of january 2005 at a so-called new year-session-rally. so apparently they are not the only session-band to perform. however, for their live on january 1st there will be a slight lineup-change:

【ルーシーモノストーンズ】
Vo.緋絽(ex.Visage)
Gt.kaname(dystopia)
Gt.遥(ex.ジャッカル)
Ba.游兎(ex.JOKER)
Dr.どこでもドラ(キナルラ)

sharing the 6-string duties with dystopia's kaname will be YOU, the former guitarist of JACKAL.
this may be only be relevant for those of you who consider going to that concert, but they'll also be selling a photoset. it comes in two different versions and it's very limited.

on the 4th of december there will be a session-band playing at 高田馬場エリア

【ルーシーモノストーンズ】
Vo.緋絽(ex.Visage)
Gt.kaname(dystopia)
Ba.游兎(ex.JOKER)
Dr.どこでもドラ(キナルラ)

the band is called LUCY MONOSTONES and hiro will be responsible for the vocal duties.
the complete lineup would be hiro on vocals, kaname on guitar, yuuto on bass and dokodemoDORA on drums.
sounds promising and i'm glad to NOT see hiro retreat from the scene!

[ mood | ~> REVERSAL THEATER IS UP! ]

today's update will
contain a review of
visage's first cd album
「reversal film」, enjoy!

「reversal film」[2004.10.01] ★★★★☆
01. reverse
02. anticipate
03. 未練と闇 (miren to yami)
04. anonymity
05. ツメタイ花 (TSUMETAI hana)

(right click on the links to download the respective song)

01. reverse (1:13) ★★★☆☆
the first track on「reversal film」is reverse,
a perfect introduction to what will expect you
during the 19 minutes of「reversal film」's
running time. a very heavy metal-riff accompanied
by grunts and screams of hiro. reverse ends with
a long, bone-chilling scream of hiro and then nicely
blends into track 2...

02. anticipate (4:15) ★★★☆☆
this track is a typical visage song.
it starts of with a fast, nasty metal-riff and heavy
screaming and grunting of hiro. the bridge starts at
1:27 and has hiro talking ~ this goes on for about
twenty seconds until we get to the chorus.
now the chorus is sort of a let-down for me as
its melody is not that memorable.
after the 2nd chorus the song quickly winds down
and fades into the next track.

03. 未練と闇 (miren to yami) (4:36) ★★★★☆
miren to yami which translates into "regret and darkness"
is a lot better than anticipate as it shows us
a previously undiscovered side of visage.
it starts of with a very funky rhythm and very
pronounced bass-playing of ryou.
miren to yami is probably the least heavy track
on this cd as it maintains its jazzy rhythm
throughout the entire four minutes of its running time.
the nice chorus with hiro literally spitting the lyrics
at you and the nice guitar-solo make this a very
memorable song.

04. anonymity (4:46) ★★★★★
now i shall move on to my favorite track on the cd.
anonymity starts off with a heavy guitar-riff
and awe-inspiring vocals by hiro.
hiro's voice really shines on this song.. his voice
is so 'present' and i adore his smooth transitions
from falsetto to chest voice.
this track is dark and gloomy and it never lets
up for a second. the chorus is great and the song
ends with a cool drum-rhythm by manabu and
a short bass-lick by ryou.

05. ツメタイ花 (TSUMETAI hana) (4:44) ★★★★★
TSUMETAI hana, which literally translates
into "cold flower" is the only true ballad
on this cd. hiro's vocals on this song a
downright bone-chilling. he never fails to
amaze me with how much feeling he can put
into his voice. his ability to convey such
a wide range of emotions makes this song
especially memorable.
the chorus' melody is by far the saddest
of all the songs on this cd. forget what i said
about anonymity being my favorite track on this cd,
TSUMETAI hana beats it by far.

hi everyone,
it is my pleasure to introduce
everyone to..

「the reversal theater~反転思考劇場~」

livejournal's first and only visage community.
my name is tim, i'm 18 years old and
i am the founder, creator and moderator of this community.

as you might have already guessed, i'm a big fan of visage
(and all of the projects 緋絽~hiro~ has been
involved in for that matter) and i wanted to create a hangout for
fans of visage and
introduce those of you that are still unfamiliar with visage to the
splendidness of their music.

in the next days i will come up with a short synopsis of what
makes visage stand out amongst other
visual-kei bands as well as their complete discography.
maybe i'll also upload some of their mp3s...
for sample purposes only, of course ^_~

since visage have disbanded after their last one-man
(11月04日@高田馬場エリア) due to the tragic
death of their bassist 凌~ryou~ i'll also keep you
informed about what the other members are doing now.

that's all for now ~>
i hope that at least a few people join this community in order
to help spreading the word of this great band.
