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)
VALKYR (guitarist 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.
Pierrot, Diaura, megamasso
Can I spontaneously give recommendations?
Hi all! I’m currently spinning the delightful Issei trio (D.I.D, Dimlim, Nazare) and wondered if there are any other VK bands with this mega heavy style. I don’t really count bands like Deviloof, Dexcore or Nocturnal Bloodlust as they just sound like US metalcore/deathcore to me.
Please and thank you
i am accounting you know the classics stuff like Dir en Grey already.
there is ninth in pluto coming to my mind but thats about it
I am accounting that any non-VK band i would recommend here will fall under your category of “too western”, even stuff like Paledusk.
MEME has been my favourite
I hope not.
