by intenselyInformation on Malice Mizer:General:
Malice Mizer was a popular Japanese band that set the standard and basis for gothic-style and Visual Kei music in Japan. Their sound ranges from extremely gothic and archaic- with organs, choirs, and menacing sounds; classical- laced with violins, pianos, and other instruments of that sort; as well as techno, pop, and industrial. They have a very unique and varying sound, which is unusual and can be describing as downright unearthly at times. But you see, that is the charm and eternal appeal of the beloved band.
Malice Mizer has, unfortunately disbanded in 2001, and it seems there is not much of a chance that they will come together once again. But we will delve more into that later. The band was founded in 1992 by Mana and Közi after Közi agreed to play bass for Mana after his band broke up. Another member, the drummer, Gaz, joined, but left in 1993 and was replaced by Kami (Feb. 1, 19??- June 21, 1999. May his sleep be peaceful.) The oldest Vocalist, Tetsu also left the band in '93 due to musical differences. Almost after one year of searching, an acquaintance recommended Gackt to Mana and Közi(or Kami, sources not too sure), and they took him out to karaoke to see how well he sung. Gackt also was reported to be innovative, and was able to work well in the band just as if he had joined when Malice Mizer was first born. In other words, Gackt and the band hit if off. After a few more years of performing, Malice Mizer joined the lineup at Nippon Columbia records, moving from their independent label Midi:Nette in 1997. Later after more successful years of music, Gackt left the band to pursue a solo career. Later that year, on July 21, Kami died of an internal hemorrhage and the band has never hired a replacement for Kami, and only used temporary drummers. Then in 2000, Klaha joined the band as the new vocalist. The trained opera singer fronted the band for another year until they disbanded in 2001.
As I have said early, I think it highly unlikely that they will come together once again due to the fact that each member has been pursuing their own solo projects. Gackt as... Gackt, Klaha as Klaha, Közi in his new band Eve of Destiny, Mana in Moi Dix Mois, Tetsu.. doing something indies, and no one is sure what Yu~ki is doing now- but he WAS seen at Klaha's birthday party!
