I thought I’d make a thread for people to ask for recommendations for particular bands. I’ll start. I’m looking for bands like Galneryus, and Concerto Moon.
Just to clarify, Japanese recommendations only?
The obvious ones: Jupiter, Matenrou Opera, Moi dix mois, Versailles, X JAPAN
Besides that, you might like
Church of Misery:
DragonForce (Not Japanese):
Projects of other Galneryus members might be worth checking out
Yuhkinen (keyboardist YUHKI)
Alhambra (also YUHKI)
Rekion (ex-vocalist Yama-B)
VALKYR (guitarist Syu)
SPINALCORD - also has material released as Aushvitz (Syu)
Syu also has two solo albums that are both really good
Yeah. I should have clarified that since I know pretty much all the non Japanese ones.
IRON ATTACK! I dunno how they compare to the current GALNERYUS, but I feel like IRON-CHINO really understands the nerdy yet earnest 80s metal dad energy YAMA-B brought to the band, and that was the main thing that I liked about GALNERYUS, tbh. Plus you get a wide selection of different vocalists to break things up a bit, and I think they’ve all got their charms.
Aikaryu and Jikuu Kaizoku Seven Seas.
Any female fronted bands? Can be anything jpop to vkei. Surprise me.
@HeroOfLove I can recommend you these bands: Aldious, Lovebites, Band-Maid, Nemophila, Bridear
Nothing in particular but I’m getting tired of my library, anything similar to any of these artists:
La cryma christi
Janne Da Arc
Or if you just think there’s a really good artist I should check out anyway then let me know.
I like Aurora and Gechena and also Siva and related projects if you don’t mind disbanded.
