Random visual Kei review Velvet Eden

So today I will be doing a random visual kei sing review. I’ll be clicking on a video to a sing ice not heard before and righting about it. 

So this is the video I just watched it’s by Velvet Eden so I was extremely excited to watch it. I’m not a huge Velvet Eden fan but I like their music.

To begin the video is very aesthetically pleasing. The dark red room is interesting only to me it was a little too dark. I couldn’t distinguish certain things from others for example the pretty details in the wood were barely visible. As was the faces on the card the fortune teller spread out in the table. However Dada looks stunning and I’m so distracted by his beauty that it doesn’t bother me much. 

The song :very catchy and easy to listen. It’s the perfect dark wave song.  Romantic and good to dance to. 

Would I watch the video again?  Probably not is not a bad video it just didn’t grasp my attention. 

Would I listen to the song again? 

Yes I like the song a lot more than the video. It makes me want to dance. 

Stay Kei

Misconceptions about Visual Kei

Hello guys im here today. After being part of the visual kei scene for a few years now I’ve come across many misconceptions and stereotypes that ultimately aren’t true. In this following blog I will be covering the most common ones. 

1:Visual Kei singers are gay 

Obviously you know how this one started. A pretty man in a dress can’t be straight….. 😒

Wrong!  

Obviously there are going to be gay visual kei Singers because  that’s natural. However just because a man tries to look pretty,doesn’t mean that he’s gay.  After all you shouldn’t just assume things like that. 

2: visual kei is dark

This one isn’t so wrong because bands like jilluka and dir en grey are very dark. Both the lyrics and videos are go tos if you love Gothic elements.  However with bands like Alice nine and Lm.C you get much lighter happier lyrics and video.

Lm. C’s punky heart is definitely a cheerful happy song . I’ll link the video to that in the bottom ⬇

3: visual kei can only be rock music

This one is totally wrong.  There are many vkei bands singers and songs that aren’t just rock. They have many pop music elements and techno

Visual kei artists like Kaya and gackt sing a wife variety of styles. Pop techno darkwave trance jazz and rock. 

Kayas songs hydrangea and taboo are perfect examples that I will link ⬇

4:All visual kei songs sound the same

This I’d probably the one I hate the most. None visual kei fans say that all visual kei sings sound the same and that artists rip each other off .

Obviously there are going to be similarities. This one girl pointed out to me that in The Gazette’s the invisible wall lead dinner ruki is wearing red leather gloves, and in Disreign’s within the void Yohio is wearing red leather gloves .

I hate that right when people listen to a new visual kei sing they feel the need to compare it to other songs and other band. They don’t take the time to appreciate the effort. It’s maddening. Please guys don’t be the person that does this. 

5:Visual kei singers suck at singing English

This one is more if a joke but still one that people believe.  First you have to understand that some Japanese people pronounce English words with Japanese accents, so that makes it a little hard to understand.  However there are plenty sing where the English is perfectly understood. 

Well guy I hope you enjoyed reading these strange misconceptions. I how you kerned something as well. 

Don’t assume. 

Don’t compare. 

Stay Kei
