Awaji Yukihiro is a Japanese musician, best known as drummer of the rock band L'Arc-en-Ciel. He also sings and plays bass for his solo project, Acid Android. Before joining L'Arc-en-Ciel he was in the popular visual kei bands Zi:Kill and Die in Cries.


He was a drummer of japanese bands ZI:KILL and DIE IN CRIES (KYO of D'ERLANGER's own band). They disbanded in 1998. tetsu had a hard time meeting yukihiro due to yukihiro had no mobile phone at that time. He replaced sakura (because of heroin possession) then become the drummer. He has a unique style of hitting the drums and he is a very fast drummer but he also created lots of drumming in slow songs. He is also a programmer. - ronluna

He's such an amazing drummer, the drum sections in some of the new songs are absolutely fantastic. He's always so quiet and hidden behind his drums that I'd swear that everyone ignores him but he's an amazing drummer. Anytime I see him play, it's so fantastic and amazing.

a very skillful drummer. his power, rhythm and melody make his drumming stand out and sounds very different from other most typical drummers. - khai0206
