|THE BAND: |
the GazettE is at present one of the most popular and successful Visual Kei Bands in Japan. the GazettE was founded in 2002 by Ruki (vocals) , Uruha (guitar), Aoi (guitar), Reita (bass) and Yune (drums). In the early 2003, drummer Yune left the band and Kai joined in the band shortly after as a drummer.
the GazettE is one of today´s absolute top acts in the Visual Kei scene. the GazettE was a small band that started out in early 2002 but made it big when they released a maxi-single called "Madara" that was also released with a DVD that had music videos for each song.
the GazettE take over the stage with a lot of confidence, looking and sounding like consumate professionals . While still visual, their music manages to convey a more street-credible punk element as well that is leading them to fill bigger and bigger venues. Having a variety of great songs -- sing-alongs, headbangs, bouncers -- doesn't hurt either. More than ever they are becoming the next of the biggest J-Rock bands.
With their album "NIL" they made their first appearance on the music scene in Europe. Later on the GazettE released their successfull albums "STACKED RUBBISH" & "DIM", several Single CDs, Live-DVDs & performend on sold-out Live-tours through Europe to prove that they are the masters of J-Rock, both in Japan & Europe!
