Believe it or not, I"m actually a fan of some Visual Kei. One of the First "Kei" bands was called X-Japan and their guitar player ended up killing himself and several fans tried to join him. I actually made a short documentary film about it. It contains a few Xjapan tunes and some hide (the guitar player that died) cips and I had a pro come in for the Voice Over work. Took almost a year of work and still isn't complete. Footage was tough to compile.




Some of these bands are quite good but you have to get past the fact that they are all in Drag first. Which is tough, especially at first.

It took me off guard in a big way when I heard the whole story. That's why I wanted to make a short film about it. In the states, we all got bummed out when Kurt Kobain killed himself, but people didn't start throwing themselves off bridges. The cultural differences are fascinating. And did you see those shots of 50,000 people at the funeral? Wow.

Ergh, I brain stormed hard, however in the end I was just too lazy. I know I have a few odd genres, but eh. I'll settle for a few really obscure bands I suppose.

Technical Death Metal:



Music that really makes no sense:

That wasn't nonsensical enough?:


Ehh, I suppose that last band can be classed as Avant-Garde metal, but I wanted to stay relevant. ;-;

Edit: Oh right, here is some oldies metal. :3
