Oh, awesome! A group for the hating on visual kei!

I don't think I could begin to fathom how much I hate the majority of visual kei in one entry post, and that's not even including my even bigger hate for the fandom. They all sound the same, they all sound like they're giving birth, they all sound like they're thrashing around like ugly, wounded animals and most of the time they have absolutely no fashion sense. Mascara smeared all over your face like a 3 year old = not cool.

I was actually into Visual Kei for a short time, but mainly because that was before I discovered awesome groups like Rize, Remioromen, Road of Major and Bump of Chicken. It's so humorous when fangirls don't like them because they don't splash on the makeup or butthump each other. Like they need to butthump each other to prove they've got a bigger and better fanbase than most failures for VK groups. HAHAHA.

Anyway, I'll be sure to spread this community around (I myself also own an anti-visual kei community on last.fm). It's good to see there are communities that share this sentiment :3 And hello to everyone!

Good to know Visual-kei exists to escape from people like you, from a society vision like yours, from discrimination like yours, from stupidity like yours. The world deserves better people than you.

No... and yes.
Yes: I have to agree that a lot of bands sound the same. It's a shame that their make up seems to be more important to them than their music.
Some of their songs you can play on a two-string-guitar. And I have to know it. I'm playin' guitar for nearly... 9 years now.
Visual Kei - Bands pop up like boybands did a few years ago.
I also prefer Metal. And I'm not talkin about stuff like Lordi. I'm talking about m-e-t-a-l.

But nevertheless I think you have to give them a chance. ^^
Dir en Grey for example are so much better know then they were at their beginning. And they're not 'visual kei' anymore.
Visual Kei is ok as cult but it shouldn't adjust the bad music, that this works is not the fault of the bands. It's the fault of the PR people and the fangirlies. I still can't belief that guys dress like girls voluntary...

As I said, I think Visual Kei COULD be a good thing... I myself like doing my hair a little other than the 'normal' people around me but I won't buy any special cloths like those expensive 'goth-clothes' or the 'sexpot' things... But a lot of people out there do. And it's funny to see them failing.

Wow, late comment is late. OK, since I never feel like internet drama'ing anymore, I'll give you a response of some kind.

As much as I hate visual kei, I prefer the Olde Days of Dir en Grey over their new. Everything since Withering to Death has been completely unlistenable for me. I did give Visual Kei a chance years ago, and I just don't like it. You're talking to someone who's tried every VK band from popular groups like Malice Mizer and Dir en Grey to Bleach, Garden, K@mikaze Boys, etc. etc., translated a lot of their songs and is musically trained as well. I did and still enjoy a few, mostly angura-kei groups (namely Metronome, Psycho le Cemu, Pierrot, Luna Sea, Plastic Tree, Kagerou, etc. etc.) but for the most part, I prefer Japan's non-visual pop-rock scene.
