Howdy, folks! It’s Ern here, ignoring the fact that summer is coming to an end in a month. It’s times like these that I’ll do anything to distract myself; even clean out my cage. And, boy, do I find a ton of cool stuff back there, like this super old edition of SHOXX magazine from 1996 with L’Arc~en~Ciel on the cover. HYDE still looks the same. Freaky. But a ton of other people and bands have changed, whether it’s visually or not. (And, y’know, since this is visual kei, the visual part matters a whole lot when we’re talkin’ about image.)
So that brings me to this week’s question. We’re gonna talk about changes.
Which visual kei bands have undergone the most drastic interesting changes, both visually and musically? Have these changes been for the better or for the worse? Do you have favorite “eras” or “looks” for your favorite bands?
It can be an old, old band, an early 2000’s band…heck, it can even be a recent band. (How many costume changes does MEJIBRAY go through in a year again?) Anyways, let me know what you think and let’s get that discussion a’rollin’!
