    X JAPAN become somewhat normal looking in the 90's. But their visual style in the 80's was quite extravagant. But a lot of metal bands during that time had a look similar to X, they weren't the only ones. :3 (Just like a lot of visual bands today seem to have a similar style.)

    I blame Hide's hair. It's just plain scary. (So they became normal-looking, or just normal looking relative to VK bands? =P Their music quality was still good, right?)

    Why haven't Psycho le Cemu not been mentioned yet? Am I the only ST member who ever listened to them? Such a shame. Do not be scared by the name as they don't really do any of that hard metal or sadistic music like Dir en grey (well, the Dir en grey songs I've heard at least.)

    They are THE cosplay band. They even went to the lengths of having a male member pretend that they are the female member (AYA. And no, Yura-sama is n't a female...only mistaken as one a few times.) Too bad the lead singer got into drugs which lead to jail sentence which lead to band on permanent hiatus... stupid DAISHI....stupid stupid stupid...

    I don't listen to a huge amount of VK, but Psycho le Cemu is a band I've heard of fairly often... and I've heard that they're good. (Isn't a defining trait of VK bands... um, having male members who look like female members? I've seen that a lot.)

    hide's hair was pretty... odd back in the late '80s. He also kept the visual style when all the other members seemed to be ditching it. During their last concert though, he looked pretty normal. (If you count hot pink hair + lime green suit + yellow guitar with red hearts on it normal. xDD)
    They actually became very normal looking in the late 90's before they broke up. They wore no make-up at all and didn't dye their hair or anything. (except hide) And I don't think their music quality changed. Their /style/ of music changed slightly though, they seemed to go from speed metal into more alternative rock. :3 They still kept their old roots though.

    Well X Japan wanted to base their style on KISS, and it made sense if you look at the hair styles sometimes.

    Think I only like Miyavi....for VK....

    Me too has anyone seen the Hyena pv the just put out XD it's so awesome =) hm.. i've been digging 12012's pvs lately like pistol and Over... i didn't like wana as much i think [6] party would have been a better pv -___-;; .. all well. i;ve been getting into more indies visual bands like Eight and -OZ- =) they have some cool music too but -OZ- kinda reminds me of D'espairs ray. Also UnsraW has caught my eye reccently too =) i love the track -9- very nice double kick bass drums XDD

    Ya i've shyed away from diru lately..... i wish kyo would stop the self-mutilation on stage -___- he has such a pretty face as it was! and it kinda makes me scared that he can do that with no hesitation.... i loved their visual era and a little post visual era when toshiya had short hair that was brown... like this.
