Nope. They broke up years ago.


It's pretty difficult to be band if your guitarist dies. He (hide, the guitarist) died in 1998.



Not really.... lots of bands lose guitarists and bassists (either due to interests or death) and they just find replacements. Now, if it is someone so integral to the band, as Hide was, the band stops, of course. But if it's someone like Kai Hansen (who left Helloween) or Gus G (ex-Dream Evil), the band can still go on. Even Metallica kept on without Dave Mustaine and Cliff Burton (although much suckier, amirite?).

:) Ok, here are a few recommendations. I just randomly chose a few bands from my playlist and I tried to get a variety of bands [Jpop, Jrock, Jhip-hop]. Erm, this post might get a bit long. I'm so sorry if it does.

abingdon boys school

Members: TMR [vocals], SUNAO [guitar], Hiroshi Shibasaki [electric guitar], & Toshiyuki Kishi [keyboards]. There are also two support members Ikuo [bass] & Kozy Hasegawa [drums].
Description: I'm sure the majority of you are familiar with TMR. abingdon boys school formed in 2005 and currently only has seven songs, some of which you might be familiar with: stay away was featured on a NANA tribute album, Dress is a BUCK-TICK cover, & INNOCENT SORROW is in D.Gray-man. There's not much else to say about them, other than they're great.

AIRMAIL

Members: Tommy [vocals & guitar], Yamasaki [drums], Kan [guitar], Ono [guitar], & Izumi [bass].
Description: I uploaded an album of theirs at my rotation journal last year and people LOVED it. Whenever I upload their songs, people always tell me how much they love this band. I honestly have yet to hear anyone say anything bad about them. Their music is incredibly mellow. If you're a screamy/growly fan, this band isn't for you. Their songs are all very calm & soothing. They remind me so much of ART-SCHOOL. If you're an ART-SCHOOL fan, you'll love AIRMAIL. Also, quite a few of their songs are in English.

Catheline

Members: マモ [vocals], Z [guitar], 楓 [guitar], 七星 [bass], & Kaoru [drums].
Description: Growly fans, this band is for you! Actually, even if you aren't a fan of screamy bands, you still should definitely try them out. I absolutely HATE screamy bands, but I think this band is excellent. I think what makes Catheline different from other growly bands is the fact that the growling isn't random. I'm not really sure how to explain that, but you'll understand if you listen to them. I also like how マモ actually sings, rather than just growling throughout the entire song.

Furil

Members: Asuka [vocals] & Eiji [pretty much does everything else: plays all the instruments, sings the choruses, & writes the lyrics].
Description: I dare you to be in a grumpy mood while listening to them. You can't. It's impossible. I mentioned before that I cannot tolerate female singers, but Asuka's the exception. Her voice might not appeal to some of you though - it's the high, squeaky type of voice. Their music is just absolutely adorable. It's a blend of Jpop and electronic. ^^; They have a song called Hello Their! gllsdapfapgegs How cute is that?! ..also, Eiji is quite gorgeous. :D

ku-tyu-bunkai

Members: Hayato Kobayashi [vocals, bass, & absolutely beautiful], kentaroyd [guitar], & Shingo Wakaki [synth].
Description: LOVE. Absolute love. Ok, I'll admit that I'm a bit shallow. What originally drew me to this band was the fact that they have an insanely gorgeous singer. Their music is incredible. They're another band that I had featured at my rotation journal that everyone seems to love. They describe their sound as a mixture of Jpop, electronica, & techno. I think it's absolutely amazing. There's a song of theirs called ☆MANIARC★ that is the epitome of sex. *_* Mmm. So lovely. I highly recommend these guys.

L'yse:nore

Members: 水恋 [vocals], hisashi [guitar], 憂己 [synthguitar & guitar], 未散 [bass], & Tomoki [drums].
Description: L'yse:nore was a VK band from the late 90s. To be honest, when I first decided to listen to them, I really didn't have high expectations. I assumed that they'd either be really crappy or end up having that generic VK sound. I was wrong. Their music is beautiful.

MIG MARKET

Members: BISCO [MC], Tibic [MC], YOUZEE [MC], 2-KASA [DJ], Shingo [support member].
Description: Here's a band for the hip-hop fans. I would say their music is a bit more on the pop-ish side, but they're still a hip-hop band and even rap quite a bit. They're great & their songs are awesome.

I'll stop there for now. I had a much longer list, but I decided to just post these ones for now. However, if anyone wants to personally ask for a recommendation, I'd be more than happy to help out. Just let me know what kind of band/sound you're looking for, or maybe some other bands you're interested in and I'll do my best to pick out some bands you might enjoy.

Yeah, most people who don't play bass say that. That's fine.

He was teh ~*prettiest*~

:) I'm sure most of you have heard of this band before, but if you haven't, definitely check them out. They're one of my favorite bands.

TRANSTIC NERVE

Vocals: TAKA
Guitar & Piano: MASATO
Guitar: TAL
Bass: RYO
Drums: MASAKI

Last.fm likens TRANSTIC NERVE to artists such as BUCK-TICK, hide, TAKUI, and Oblivion Dust.

While every single song of theirs is fantastic, a few that I highly recommend are: Get up fuckin' bloody monster, Overhead Run, & Parade.
