MeteoroiD (formerly known as METEOROID) MeteroiD are a visual kei band who quickly rose to fame after their unique style and impressive music along with their vivid and adrenaline-pumping live performances! They started off as a session band in 2012, with vocalist GENKI, bassist Ral, and drummer Tomoya, but only became official band in 2013 as that was when guitarists Yutori and Machi joined the band.
