The Contenders: Page 13XW

241Fujifabric

The lyrics of their songs are so attractive appealing Japanese beauty of literature like Haiku and Tanka. Masahiko Shimura, who is the vocalist and the rhythm guitarist, had passed away on 24th Dec 2009, but his songs have captured people, s heart even after his death. Shiki-ban, songs of distinctive four seasons in Japan, cannot be written by anyone else but Masahiko Simura.

242BLOOD

It's a great visual kei band from Japan. Band was founded by Kiwamu in 2002 in Osaka. Music created by BLOOD is very varied. It combines rock, metal, classical and electronic music.

243Pay Money to My Pain

This is the best band ever! Really!
I can't believe they aren't in the first place.
All their albums are unbelievable.

231? How come?
It's absurd! This band was beyond amazing. They are legends in the underground.

244GO!GO!7188

I just spent like 2 hours of my life searching for the name of this band cause I loved their songs but the name is weird so I was like WHAT WAS IT I NEED TO HEAR THEM and yeah, that should tell you how good they are.

These guys are so good. I don't know how they can be ranked so far down. Their music is technically impressive on all instruments and their songs are wildly diverse. They generally sound like some combination of alt metal, classic rock, punk (tempo wise), and even some reggae sounding stuff. It seems like they have endless ways to create music that is interesting and really easy to rock out to.

This band is definitely a great band to listen to give it a shot I'm sure you won't be disappointed and if you do it won't be that much.

My favorite Japanese band. Sad to see them so down. really great music and great tech musicians.

Chelly's voice is so sweet, her voice is cute and lovely. I love her.

Japan's best musical band group and has the best singers such as Chelly and Koeda, powerful voices and great band members

White Seiyaku will forever be a favorite from them, really addictive. And Hyakukaime No Kiss really speak to me in a lot of ways, because I'm in a LDR. So I understand the feeling of letting go, however not letting go all the way

253Heidi.

I love heidi. They have beautiful, catchy melodies, beautiful lyrics and lovely instrumentals. The members are also very kind and funny and really down to earth. My favourite visual kei band ever!

Yoshihiko's voice is so so unique and Kiri, Nao, and Kousuke are so pro at their instruments. (and Kiri's so attractive~)

254Polyisics

What? These guys should be top ten!

255Crush 40

Crush 40 is not a Japanese band. Having a half Japanese member doesn't make it Japanese.

That's like saying Linkin Park is J-rock because Mike Shinoda is Japanese...

The lead singer Johnny Giohle may be American but the guitarist Jun senoue is half American and half Japanese he has done one of the best guitar solos there ever was

They broke up, but songs like futuristic imagination.. light prayer.. Incredible lyrics from Yumi Uchimura; amazing musicality from all members; they have to get a mention! All the best for the future guys! You rock!

This is one of my favourites band. Sadly the are not together anymore. This band will always have a personal space in my heart. Also you can listen La-la-larks.

259GRANRODEO

Granrodeo have a lot of good songs! You should definitely check them out

I really love GRANRODEO one of my favorite Japanese rock bands the vocalist (Kishou Taniyma) has a very beautiful voice I like there songs I suggest to that you go check it out
