IZABEL VAROSA, a band that was only around from 2004-2006, produced a few visual kei veterans that are now in bands like RE-LITE.
RE-LITE posted on their website about the unfortunate death of ex. IZABEL VAROSA’s drummer 楓舞 (Fuuma). Read the translation of the announcement below for details (translated by yours truly):
To all supporters of ex. IZABEL VAROSA’s Fuuma
We regret to inform both staff and those related that former IZABEL VAROSA drummer Fuuma passed away on November 3rd, 2015 due to a brain hemorrhage.
We have been allowed to inform you of this based on the wishes and permission of Fuuma’s family.
The funeral has already taken place and consisted of family (and some staff).
We are grateful for all of the support Fuuma received during his life.
The Members of IZABEL VAROSA
Fuuma also participated in a band called Mariposa that was only active between 2002-2003. IZABEL VAROSA had a one-day revival live in 2009, but since then, there has been no activity from the band. Only vocalist Hikaru and Chihiro remain active as members of RE-LITE. If you’re a fan of either, send them a kind word in their time of grieving.
