So my girlfriend Yuki introduced me to somthing cool… And it’s called Malice Mizer. They (to me) are like a hint of elegance, splashed with a dark castlevania sound, and a great japanese voice. Personally, one of the big reasons I like them is due to NOT understanding the lyrics. I’ve grown to hate alot of english music because the lyrics drown out the good melody… And Malice Mizer fixes that (for me). Gackt’s voice is mysterious and sexy, coming off as just another part of the music and not “some guy saying stuff” like alot of music is becoming.
I also think Mana is by far the sexiest woman I’ve ever seen.
Only problem is… Mana is a dude.
That is all, I just wanted to share my newfound love.
You should hear X Japan. They’re really the most influential Japanese band ever. Their music isn’t exactly Castlevania-esque, but it’s uniquely phenomenal. Diverse, as well: from hard metal, to orchestral, to love ballad. They also invented the androgynous look of modern J-Rock. The group’s worth looking into.
But didnt Gackt go pop? I don’t like the steriotypical j-pop Ive heard… and she likes him still even though it may just be for his looks… I dunno. I’ll look into it as well as that “X Japan” group too.
Malice Mizer’s vocalists have all been males. And sounded like males.
In retrospect… I fucking hate most japanese female voices. All the way from music to anime, the dumb bitches sound way too younge for thier age. My girlfriend (whos an american japanese) says that in Japan thats how all the ladies are… Thus I’ll never go to japan because I’d want to punch little girls (30 year old women) in the throat every time they spoke.
malice mizer was pretty fucking rocking when gackt was their lead singer, but i dont know about either of them anymore. gackt’s solo stuff is worse than ozzy osbourne’s. and i wouldnt say they dont have musical talent… theres some intense baroque harpsichord shit in there, and gackt has quite a vocal talent as well. they keep goth classy over there.
