Luna Sea fan here~~ (big surprise, eh?). Musically, I'd say they are still one of the most interesting visual kei bands out there.

 

I used to be a great X Japan fan, too, I went to their lives in Japan several times (in fact, I once flew to Japan just for that). I really can't wait for their new album and I'm getting really impatient (though still loving them), so in the meantime I just listen to Luna Sea. Hopefully I'll be able to see Luna live this year too...

DazzleVision is really good! You listen to most bands I also like xD I'm not that much into Yohio, I do adore his guitar skills but his vocals don't really impress me.

Rec me some stuff guys 

 

yaaas the Gazette is my all time fav, it's going to be my second time seeing them in Helsinki next month. I even have the vip. 

There's not many smaller bands that compare to the music of the Gazette, but atm I find that Sel'm has the most similar feel. Still not even close though haha. I guess Dir En Grey is the only band that can  BE compared to The Gazette because of their popularity. If you want something prettier try Sukekiyo. Sadie is a little more like basic j-metal and not so artsy, vocalist sounds like Kyo a little bit, amazing. Nightmare is a classic band too, check it out.

I recommend Girugamesh for people who like Gazette but also like one ok rock. Girugamesh is my second favourite, I feel so sad that they'll be no more. There's an ongoing band called lynch.  ,  that makes a tiny bit similar music to Girugamesh's old albums. DEATHGAZE is a little heavier, but still good. Many Gazette fans also like BORN and SCREW. If you liked BORN, try DIAURA too.

Then there are the not so basic bands, NOCTURNAL BLOODLUST reminds me more of western metal.

For a girl band, ALDIOUS is probably the best available right now.

There's newer bands called DADAROMA and Royz that I never got into since I'm so old, but they have lots of fans it might be right up your alley. Still, right now it seems most attention in the community surrounds The Gazette and Mejibray, hopefully some new stars come up, since so many bands disbanded already this year.

I never got into Jrock/metal when I was younger.. even tho I loved rock. But Jrock was sadly never my thing. But maybe it is now, since I'm out of this lifesucking kpop swamp back into the rock/metal/alternative swamp lol.

Maybe someone wants to rec me some bands that are similar to western bands I love? :alpacacrush: Like Bring me the Horizon, Bullet for my Valentine, Papa Roach or Of mice and men :lamaheadshake:

Honestly I did dump Jrock a long time ago when most did. Mostly because my tastes changed to symphonic metal. But I saw an interview of Wagakki Band above on NHK and I'm so obsessed with their traditional instruments mixed with rock. :alpacalove:

 

I've been listening to Wagakki Band lately, and I love it. Kiyoshi is my favorite band member (he's so cute). Grr I need to learn to play the koto, but the full size ones are so expensive.
