The Big Ern once more. I’m definitely on a roll here don’t you think? As usual, your questions and inquiries mean a lot to me so I appreciate your curiosity—it keeps me busy. Anyways, this question comes from Renan:
Q. Hello!! can Mr. Ernie help me find these guys, and what they are doing these days? Maru, Shunsuke, Seika (all ex-bis); Tsukasa (what happened to RHYOLITE?); Nyon (ex-DreqixRudra); THOMAS ex-vocalist; Shuuya (ex-Clavier); Makoto (ex-/ucifer); Sakito (ex-[FIGURe:]); Rose (ex-TRAX);
A. Well this one was a doozy. Took me a while to search for everything, but I did my utmost best on everything:
Maru, Shunsuke, Seika (all ex-bis)
After bis, Shunsuke really joined a session band called 仏滅ヘッドロック (butsumetsu HEADROCK), which stopped activities in December of last year. Seika ended up joining the session band BIRTHDAY that only lasted a short while. As for Maru, nothing is really known of his whereabouts or what he us up to, but it is rumored that he may have left the music industry.
Tsukasa (what happened to RHYOLITE?)
Well we did mention over here that RHYOLITE will disband at the end of February. Tsukasa still updates his blog quite frequently, but I would assume he is most likely to continue on in the music industry even after RHYOLITE disbands.
Either than being in the session band 彩-PSYCHO-, Nyon hasn’t been active since his days in DreqixRudra.
Syn, (ex-THOMAS vo.)
It seems that Syn. is one of those guys that just disappear off the face of the earth when they leave a band. It seems like no one has heard from him or knows what is going on with him as of now.
Shuuya is no where to be found as of yet, but rumor has it that he may be making a return back into the music scene, so keep your fingers crossed.
Makoto has launched himself a solo career and released an album in 2007 and some live DVDs. His current web page can be found here
It appears that Sakito has actually retired from the music scene.
Although Rose and The TRAX is a Korean band, I thought I may as well help you out here. After he left the TRAX, he pretty much went solo. As for his activities now, he seems to still be in the music industry, he’s in a band called THE ROMANTIST and plays guitar for them. (ohp here) They haven’t released anything official. Also, No MinWoo is currently getting into acting.
Well that’s that. I hope I could satisfy a majority of your curiosities and I hope I have shed some light on some things. The Big Ern isn’t perfect so forgive him for being a little vague. Anyways, keep sending in those questions.
