the GazettE is one of the most successful band in Japan and we can say that they deserve it. They have seen much success outside of Japan as well, but they only came to Europe once, which is really sad because we definitely miss them a lot. They are so great and talented that it’s a shame that we are not able to see them perform here in Europe more. Even though we can see them performing live with their different live DVDs, it’s not the same. We know they have a lot of fans here in Europe and all over the world, but there are still people who have not listened to them; we can only advise to listen to their music. They really have beautiful songs and so much talent. What is great about them is that they are able to go from a soft rock track to a really hard rock song. You could never get bored listening them because you know you will have a lot of variety. They are also amazing on stage. When they are performing live, they just shine and have so much energy. They are able to share their emotions and have so much charisma, it’s just wonderful to see them perform. In an interview with them, they are way more quiet, but this is something usual for the Japanese artists, they are never really extroverted. Regardless of that, when you see their backstage self videos, you can see they are funny and they show a different side of themselves. That’s also why we like them so much.
For the members, you have the singer RUKI, he has a very beautiful, very special voice and he is able to sing so well. It’s just a pleasure to hear him. He is also nonchalant and has a lot of charisma. AOI, one of the guitarist is just so talented that it’s astonishing you every time you see him play. He is also very sexy, making you melt every time he is making a movement with his hips. The other guitarist URUHA is also amazing, though with visuals a bit more feminine than the other members, even though he is the athletic guy of the band. He is still very popular and talented. Then you have the bassist REITA, with the bad boy kind of look, but very sexy as well. He is always wearing wonderful clothes with very special haircuts as well, but the most amazing thing about him is his bass skills. It’s very rare to have a bassist being able to make a solo and he does it perfectly. Last but not least, KAI, the drummer, is also such a talented guy; when he touches his drum, it’s just like paradise for us. He also has a lot of charisma and can be very funny. It’s always a pleasure to listen to his beats. With so much talents in one band, no wonder why they are so successful!
They were formed in 2002, they released several EP’s between 2002 and 2006. They released their first studio album “Disorder“ in 2004, but the album which brought them their success is definitely “Nil“ which was released in February 2006 with the famous song “Cassis“. In July 2007, they released a new album “Stacked rubbish“, at this time, their success and fame was growing. A lot of famous and great songs come from this album such as “Filth in the beauty“, “Calm envy“ and “Gentle lie“. Then they took two years to release another album, “Dim“; it was released in July 2009 and once again was a successful album. Always improving themselves in every album, we were expecting the next album with impatience, and it came in October 2011. Fortunately, they didn’t wait that much time for to release the last one; “Division“ has been released in August 2012 in Japan, then in October for Europe. You can find the reviews of the two last albums by clicking on the links under this presentation.
All we can say now, it’s we love them, we want them to come in Europe again. So support them, support us and show them how much we love them here in Europe!
