GONNA TRY AGAIN xD very hard to find members

I am a vocalist who has been trying to form a visual kei/oshare kei band for a while now. I’ve been practicing vocals for about 2 years now, to be honest I am not good and I try my hardest to improve. I mainly do clean vocals so that I can work my way up to growls as my growls/screams are really weak. I am trying to learn programming/keyboard/FL STUDIO because i would like to have more responsibilities. I can do some of the artwork though and possibly promotion. (I would love to try and be useful as i can because of my low skills)

As for the band I’d like to put together:
2 vocals (if there is another vocalist who’d like to try the twin vocal style like bands MoNoLith and Mix Speaker’s Inc.)
2 guitarists (1 is fine but never know if there are more interested)
Bassist
Drummer
Keyboard/synth/prog (im open to more styles)

With experience this is what I am looking for:
Music- ZERO to ANY. -I myself have very little music experience aside from vocals so I’d prefer members who have little experience so the band can grow together, its not a must but a preference lol.-

Band- ZERO to ANY. I’m not picky with band experience.

Knowledge of Japanese language- ZERO to ANY. –You do not have to know Japanese fluently but if you know SOME then excellent lol. I’m currently trying to learn the language (have been since high school but I hardly have time ;-;) so if we learn the language as we go then awesome ^~^

Equipment: you do not have to have any, I understand that equipment is very expensive (I myself don’t have a PA system lol) so yea it’s all cool

All members must be open to hearing out everyone’s thoughts/opinions. Open to all styles is great, more variety but if you prefer one style then we could make things work =)

My influences: Versailles, Jackman, Art Cube. SuG, DragonWAPPPPPPER, An Café, VannessA, The PIASS, amber gris, BORN, MoNoLith, NEGA, Royz, the Riotts, The Rudie Satan Park, UnsraW, Moi Dix Mois, Malice Mizer, Mix Speaker’s Inc., Gakido, Misaruka, DEATHGAZE, lynch., Anti-Feminism. Administrator, ALSDEAD, Exist Trace, E;m~grief~, Chemical Pictures, Lycaon, LuLu, Kagrra, DOG in the parallel world orchestra, BugLug, oyuugi wagamama dan x paradeis, D, Crazy Shampoo, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, aicle, OZ, ViViD, Phantasmagoria, Chariots, spiv states, The Candy Spooky Theater, Dir en Grey, GallowS, vNEU, SEED, Hizaki Grace Project, Luzmelt, Zip.er, lix., Edogawa Paradox, EGOIST, ayabie, Kibouya Honpo, minus jinsay orchestra, schwein, ridiot, Rimo with SAVANNA P.K. Orchestra.

I live in van nuys so I prefer people to be around here lol um these areas are fine as well : North Hollywood, Sylmar, Burbank, Glendale, Northridge, Encino, Santa Clarita, and Palmdale(Palmdale is the farthest I will travel sorry ;-;)

any questions you may message me on here or email me at [email protected] =]


IMPORTANT-It does not matter how skilled you are! I consider myself a beginner so i would honestly like to be around people who are the same or a mix of skilled and non skilled =] PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

I am a lead vocalist who is forming a visual kei band called Shadow Trance in the Atlanta area. I will explain what Shadow Trance will sound like. The music will sound a little like Malice Mizer and Moi dix Mois and the fashion will look similar to Malice Mizer and 1984 Prince and The Revolution but with a visual kei feel to it.

I am in the process of becoming a better vocalist for the band by practicing by singing along to a lot visual kei and Japanese Rock songs.

Mainly, I'm looking for locals who are into joining or forming a visual kei band like me. If you're living in places like Norcross, Forest Park, Marietta or places like that, I cannot drive to either of those places and I do not know which county they are in.

This is my very first band and I would like to make this band a lot of fun like the visual kei bands out there today.

However if you live in the Atlanta area, feel free to contact me through email.

HEEELP! I NEED BAND MEMBERS! I live in New Jersey, closer to Philadelphia than New York. I do vocals and guitar, but am really looking to be a vocalist for a visual kei band. I have an extremely large vocal range, able to sing relatively low, almost like kamijo from versailles or Gackt, aaaaaaalll the way up to singing like Utada Hikaru and Amy Lee from Evanescence (strange for a boy, I know, but it's actually easier for me to sing higher than lower) My influences are X JAPAN first and formost, but also Gackt and Miyavi, Dir en grey, Satsuki, Deluhi, Versailles, Girugamesh, L.MC, SuG, An Cafe, BORN, Heartless, Kiryu, Aicle....and alot more, really. Visual Kei is pretty much my life. Also, I know that people don't usually advertise skills other than musical ones, but in terms of the visual kei image, I'm skilled with makeup and hairstyling, as well, so we can look the part too, though the music is of course the most important thing. Pleeeeease someone reply, I need band members!:D I'm already almost 19, guys, and I know that that's definitely not old, not by a longshot, but most big time visual kei stars have been in VK bands since thy were around 16, I'm late!XD By the way, my stage name is MATSU!

WHO LIKES VERSAILLES? Hey everybody, I'm looking to form a band like Versailles, with symphonic metal style and extreme beauty in everything. Would anyone like to join? I play bass, guitar, and drums, and I have a wide vocal range. I also have hair and makeup covered, so we dont need to hire someone for that.

hmm, following the format of the ones above:

Age:19
Sex:Male
Location:United States
Who inspires me to play: My idol is Jasmine You of Versailles, my musical heros are X Japan, Versailles, Gackt, and Miyavi
beginners are welcome, but I'm seeking to form a serious band, be geared towards the big time!

Yo, my name is Teddy from Ohio, 21, looking to get back into the scene. I've been playing for about 10 years, been playing JRock and VK for about 5. I'm primarily a bassist, and I've got about 2 years of stage and recording experience.

Basically, I'd like to play some live music. I wouldn't mind doing some online collaboration thing if anyone is in dire need of a bassist, but the main goal here is to bring it to the stage, or at least jam together every now and then. I'm looking for anyone in or around Ohio who's willing to meet up twice a month or so.

I've got plenty of gear, most of which isn't relevant to this post. Four string Fender Squier Jazz bass, six string ESP LTD B206SM, and an Ampeg BA115HP, good for small to medium sized gigs. Unless we end up filling up stadiums, it will do the trick.

I used to play in a VK band a few years back with some buddies of mine, so I might have a guitarist and drummer on board. That's a big maybe, though. It's been a while since they've played VK.

My personal influences are DIR EN GREY, abingdon boys school, the GazettE, Girugamesh, Miyavi, MUCC, SCREW, 9GOATS BLACK OUT, etc. but I'm flexible as to what kind of VK I end up playing.

That's about it. Hit me up with a PM if you're interested or if you have any questions. I've got a few samples if you're curious about how I play.

I play the drums, and I also know piano.

More accurately, I'm starting drumming, but I don't think I'm all too bad. However, if you've already got a nearly-complete band and want to start immediately, then I probably shouldn't join. I'd prefer a amateurish band that's just about to start, so I have more time to practice and all. In addition, my piano skills are mediocre, since I've only self-taught. Then again, practice makes perfect.. 8D

Also, while I don't really like composing an entire song by myself, I am more then happy to help write lyrics or help tweak some of the notes. (Might I add that I know somebody who can also provide me with a >>lot<< of insight?)

Whilst I don't mind screamo, I prefer things like existtrace, DIAURA, Versailles, DESTROSE, Spyair, LIGHT BRINGER, Aldious, Cynthia, 凛 (Lin), Satsuki, and Acid Black Cherry. I like a lot more bands, but these are among my fav's.

I was inspired to play drums by all those awesome jrock bands, and one of the teachers at my school. (Who is a drummer himself; he also knows how to play guitar and piano amazingly well :D!)

My location is NYC.

And I know my resume is crappy enough, but should I mention I'm 13 at the moment? Asian, thirteen, and female? Of course, you'll say something like, "She's just a 13 years old brat who has mediocre piano and drum skills. Why have her when I can have -insert pro-?" Well. . . the truth is, you probably shouldn't. However, I want to join a jrock band (or at the very least, meet some other jrock-lovers).

Aaannnyway.

I'm dont actually wear visual kei on a daily basis, but I am more then willing to start. The only thing holding me back, in fact, is my lack of ability to order things online. (Because, you know, I'm thirteen. But that'll all change very, very soon.)
