Crow×Class is a Visual Kei band where all members play traditional Japanese instruments and they are all professional musicians.


Their choice of instruments gives their music a quite unique and interesting sound. It’s energetic metal with a major ethnic touch; traditional Japanese sound mixed with rock.

They had their debut show in August 2011 at Rokumeikan in Megurowhich and it seems like their performances often are spiced up with theatrical elements, which makes me really curious.

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
