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 oneĀ  :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.

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

Pulls off every japanese cliche out there, but its very catchy and i left it playing without realising it was going still so it passes!

You and I have almost exact opposite ways of judging what'll pass and not. ;)
