Still Looking to Froam Visual/Oshare Kei band - J-ROCK MUSICIANS

About Still Looking to Froam Visual/Oshare Kei band

Previous Entry Still Looking to Froam Visual/Oshare Kei band Jul. 16th, 2012 @ 03:41 pm Next Entry

I am a vocalist who has been trying to form a visual kei/oshare kei band for a while now. I’ve been practicing vocals for about 2 years now, to be honest I  am not good and I try my hardest to improve. I mainly do clean vocals so that I can work my way up to growls as my growls/screams are really weak. I am trying to learn programming/keyboard/FL STUDIO because i would like to have more responsibilities. I can do some of the artwork though and possibly promotion. (I would love to try and be useful as i can because of my low skills)

As for the band I’d like to put together:

2 vocals (if there is another vocalist who’d like to try the twin vocal style like bands MoNoLith and Mix Speaker’s Inc.)

2 guitarists (1 is fine but never know if there are more interested)

Bassist

Drummer

Keyboard/synth/prog (im open to more styles)

With experience this is what I am looking for:

Music- ZERO to ANY. -I myself  have very little music experience aside from vocals so I’d prefer members who have little experience so the band can grow together, its not a must but a preference lol.-

Band- ZERO to ANY. I’m not picky with band experience.

Knowledge of Japanese language- ZERO to ANY.  –You do not have to know Japanese fluently but if you know SOME then excellent lol. I’m currently trying to learn the language (have been since high school but I hardly have time ;-;) so if we learn the language as we go then awesome ^~^

Equipment: you do not have to have any, I understand that equipment is very expensive (I myself don’t have a PA system lol) so yea it’s all cool

All members must be open to hearing out everyone’s thoughts/opinions. Open to all styles is great, more variety but if you prefer one style then we could make things work =)

My influences: Versailles, Jackman, Art Cube. SuG, DragonWAPPPPPPER, An Café, VannessA, The PIASS, amber gris, BORN, MoNoLith, NEGA, Royz, the Riotts, The Rudie Satan Park, UnsraW, Moi Dix Mois, Malice Mizer, Mix Speaker’s Inc., Gakido, Misaruka, DEATHGAZE, lynch., Anti-Feminism. Administrator, ALSDEAD, Exist Trace, E;m~grief~, Chemical Pictures, Lycaon, LuLu, Kagrra, DOG in the parallel world orchestra, BugLug, oyuugi wagamama dan x paradeis, D, Crazy Shampoo, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, aicle, OZ, ViViD, Phantasmagoria, Chariots, spiv states, The Candy Spooky Theater, Dir en Grey, GallowS, vNEU, SEED, Hizaki Grace Project, Luzmelt, Zip.er, lix., Edogawa Paradox, EGOIST, ayabie, Kibouya Honpo, minus jinsay orchestra, schwein, ridiot, Rimo with SAVANNA P.K. Orchestra.

I live in van nuys so I prefer people to be around here lol um these areas are fine as well : North Hollywood, Sylmar, Burbank, Glendale, Northridge, Encino, Santa Clarita, and Palmdale(Palmdale is the farthest I will travel sorry ;-;)

if you have any questions you may contact me on here or send me an email =] fs_chibi@hotmail.com

IMPORTANT-It does not matter how skilled you are! I consider myself a beginner so i would honestly like to be around people who are the same or a mix of skilled and non skilled =] PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

Current Mood: determined

sucks that we live so far apart DX I'm guessing you live in Cali? I live in Maryland :/ pretty much the whole way across the country >.< If we lived closer I would love to be a second vocalist :) (probably a piass influence)

lol *is now contemplating on leaving myspace* w/e floats your boat! I wish it was easier for people like us to just move to Japan and make a band XD seems so easy to do over there~
and shame on those people for backing out! That's usually the main issue besides finding people ~_~

xD i might make a myspace page just for the ad though and you dont have to leave myspace
if we we're able to move to Japan easily i think it'd be over crowded xD
hell if we had lived to one another things would kick off right away

lol ur still young though. in fact idk anyone as young as you who is actually into The Piass 0.0 usually ppl ur age are into the newer gen VK lol i give u props \(^o^)/
what other bands are you into?

ugh tbh I HATE the new generation of VK DX only a few of them are pretty good but those are bands from like 3 years ago that formed XD

herm da herm lemme see...my fave bands include:
The piass
Anti feminism
サンドイッチで120分?
Dentaku
Sex android
Guruguru Eigakan
Urbangarde
Older Gazetto (from like 2002~2006)
Dir en grey

Lol pretty much all of those creepy angura bands no one knows about XD
I guess you could say most 14 yr old VK fangirls listen to stuff like paradeis and anime songs but w/e I'm the odd one out XD

i agree with u, many of the newer bands look and sound the same. some of the newer gen bands are good though like Jackman and Royz.

u have chosen extremely awesome bands as ur favs ^~^
now do u prefer old diru or new diru? xD personally i prefer old diru

most 14yr old fangirls are much more obsessed with fan service rather than the music, which i find to be stupid -__- so ur like awesome lol

Yeah I like Royz ^ w ^ and other newer bands like screw,d=out,lost ash,diaura lol there's some more newer ones that I can't think of though haha

Older dir en grey XD pretty much everything up to Vulgar I loved and after that it was okay > w >

agreed XD I cringe at the sight of fan service >.< of course when I was like 11 it was always SO KAWAII NE?
Since then my Japanese has improved greatly along with my musical taste and maturity O w O So you sir are awesome for calling me awesome XD

Lost Ash is taking me a while to get used to them lol theyre good n all but eh

everything after vulgar was more like a wtf happened to them 0.0 .... xD seriously like they ditch the whole vk scene and wont have any part of it. it's stupid bcuz it's how they became so well known

how good is ur japanese? i havent been able to study so im terrible at it X'D

Yeah I know DX if only they stayed how they used to look and had that authentic sound that WAS dir en grey my life wouldn't suck XD if you can only remember... All VK was kote kei and actually had meaning DX

depends on what you consider good XD I could carry on a general convo and I know plenty of wierd,gross,and creepy random words in Japanese > w > hmmm...I know most of the kanji on level N5...and yeah XD I don't study much either so don't worry XD

That's why I listen to bands like the piass,サンドイッチで120分?, and anti feminism. XD they actually have meaning and they're UNIQUE. Especially サン分?,just becuase this is one of Eiji's fucked up bands XD

lol Level N5 is the beginner portion of JLPT (Japanese language proficiency test) <------I think that's what it is XD it's pretty easy to learn actually ^ w ^

I noes *____* I miss all of Eiji's bands especially 秘密結社コドモA! Listening to them is just like eating a bowl full of nostalgia ヽ(´o`; I wish none of Eiji's bands disbanded DX I have a feeling sanpun is also his last in the music scene ; ^ ; I mean he's almost 38 yrs old and usually it doesn't take this long to gather up some new members (at least for him) *sigh*

You should XD it definately makes you feel smarter haha XD quite easy persay :) as long as you just keep looking over them once in a while...

he's almost 38??? 0.0 he looks young though :O he prob hasn't found new members due to what happened when he was in 秘密結社コドモA. sanpun is doing fine with three members and we can't say for sure that it'll be his last. he's still young ^~^ it'd be cool if sanpun and minus-jinsay could collaborate together and release a split album though

Yea hes 38 but looks like a young 25 yr old XD Sanpun WAS doing fine but they are on indefinite hiatus right now which pretty much means disbandment to me >.< So now we have pretty much no new released songs at the moment ; o ; I believe in them to come back or for Eiji to make a new band but we never know DX not trying to be negative btw XD I guess it's just my mindset lol
Yah I <3 Jin say so much ; v ; the first time I heard dive 4 u I was so happy XD idk that song is just so cute!

lol this is a wierd question but...Have you ever heard of a band named Anny's LTD.? O w O

sorry for the late reply, got caught up with school work ><
he looks rather young, but then again all asians look young as they age....makes me jealous ;-; indefinite hiatus to everyone always means disbandments, i dont like thinking that way lol they prob just want to improve their style and make a great comeback =] Eiji has gone through a lot with each band but he has been able to pull through it. dive 4 u is an awesome song!! drooled everywhere hearing it the first time xD even cyborg is fantastic

I actually have =] (its not weird to ask xD) but it has been awhile since i heard that name...gotta get back into all these bands

Its alright XD I definately understand ; o ; school is already killing me and it's only been like 3 weeks DX

yah... I'm amazed at how young most jrockers look even in their mid 30's : 3 : lol the power of makeup XD with the exception of Eiji XD he looks amazing with and without makeup XD
Oh gosh dive 4 u is like my summer song to play O w O cyborg is awesome : w : all Jin say songs are amazing tbh ( *`ω´)

I really hope Eiji returns soon! I loved him since late himitsu kessha kodomo a ; o ; I love all his works including Candy Bomb and Makaroni o w o

Yah just asking becuase I was listening to STEP UP MIND SYSTEM c:

Aww dont feel ashamed XD those are his REALLY old bands from back in the 90's and early 00's XD I'm surprised I've even found out about them but I've been an Eiji fangirl for some time XD it's almost creepy • w •
