Okay, before you start telling me why the hell these people are wearing frilly dresses and holding roses, and why I would make a post about this, hear me out =o

Versailles (Versailles -Philharmonic Quintet- = US Only name) is a Japanese symphonic metal band. Yes, Japanese, and yes, these people play symphonic metal. And they play it pretty damn well, too. To describe them, it's like the popular J-rock band L'Arc~en~Ciel's riffs & melodies, combined with two guitars, double bass and orchestra elements. To me, it's two worlds in one  :D

That's a link to their MySpace page. You'll see what I mean when you listen to "PRINCE", their latest single as of now, and is actually a completely free downloadable single (it used to be on their website, but if you use Google you'll find it).

So, what do you think? o_O

I'm more impressed with the quality of their clothing than the music, tbh. Serious work has been put into that stuff.

I have to agree.
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica

Reminds me of Malice Mizer... There's differences alright but still.

I do like the guitar.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

You and I have almost exact opposite ways of judging what'll pass and not. ;)
Oi, is this when I get a huge sig-image, start whining about "moar sid" and make nonsensical arguments to no good?

I'm sure you realised we're very different people long, long ago. [:
