I decided to create this fun topic. What are some visual kei mysteries everyone has. A band member gone missing never came back where did they go, Mysterious activities of band members, unknown name meaning of releases/lyrics
This topic includes mysteries that have yet to be solved in the Visual kei world. This also includes ones that was a mystery and was solved.
Note anything that has to do with lost visual kei releases refer to the other topic called “Jrock lost media” This is not intended to be related to that topic. If a release is missing or some mysteries in relation to that please post them there.
This topic for the following:
Band member history/actions
Unknown information with Band history
Explanations to unknown band creations
(This includes track/release naming, unknown lyrics meaning, Unknown explanation to concepts/themes or weird explanations etc)
Any questions let me know
Here’s mine which is solved which gives a good example of the last point:
So I attempted to try and solve an ongoing mystery on what the title of a certain release for the band REVIVE. The release is called ゼアルマベラルミラ (Zeal Maberal Rumira). There were many questions surrounding this title. Upon the release of this single there were several questions on Monochrome heaven surrounding this release and some people replied with various different things but I wanted to see for myself. I reached out to one of the band members via Twitter. From what I put together is that it’s a spell word. After being extremely lucky in receiving a reply from a band member, I was super happy so I thought how could I figure this out. I then decided to scan lyrics from the CD I owned and did a decent translation of the lyrics.
What I found was interesting. Firstly, the vocalist sings this song slightly differently in certain verses but the result of the translation ended up becoming around the same. I guess me learning there are different kanji for the same word. It’s cool. I later learned that this word was created by the band as it doesn’t have an English basis and I even I tried multiple languages different forms of saying the word nothing.
So conclusion the word is a spell word like a chant or type of incantation related to witchcraft. Based on the translation of the song it is a love spell where torches are lit calling upon an unknown god and involves blood sacrifice. It’s pretty cool but also just shattered my original thoughts on what the word ment. The song is about love and sacrifice I guess the person went to an extreme measures and used witchcraft. Pretty crazy.
Basically says that they are active but slowly progressing. I remember he mentioned an release that they are working on but i guess it not official yet cuz there are prob problems with the band progressing i assume. So i guess its sort of a mystery why their progression is slow
I don’t know if he’s been found yet, but Iroha (Vrzel) had disappeared. They say it’s related to a break up with his girlfriend. He also let the band know that he was leaving. Apparently even the police are tryna find him. I just hope nothing happened to him or he decided to end it all.
Maybe he’s not really missing, but i always wonder where is Yune (ex-Gazette) is. i wonder if being pete simmons of Gazette turns him off from music entirely. I always thought he is much better than kai. (maybe if they gonna made a slipknot cover band, kai and yune could play together someday)
