Hi everyone! New member here. I’m a 34 year old female living in America. I decided to create an account after a couple of months of browsing the forum for band news. None of my friends are into visual kei or Japanese rock/metal, so I thought it would be nice to interact with others who share the same interest. My intro to this scene started when I discovered photos of Dir En Grey on Livejournal around 2003 or 2004. I believe it was some time after the release of Vulgar. I became really intrigued after seeing DEG content and I downloaded some music files (yes, I’m a fossil :upside_down_face:) Anyway, I’ve been hooked ever since! My current favorite band is Matenrou Opera. I also like D and Versailles. I’m really jealous of everyone that will attend the Japanese Visual Metal shows…but good for you if you have a chance to go! Well, that about sums it up. I look forward to future discussions with everyone. Hope you all have a Happy New Year!


Welcome to the forum and happy new year :tada:

Don’t worry we got some more living “fossils” on here :wink::laughing:
