chariots are reborn… <3

This news were already announced a couple of month ago and I mentioned it on visual ioner Facebook, but I think it’s time to make a blog post about it as well. It’s great news for people like me who are Riku-fans. Personally I think he has one of the most beautiful voices and I think most of you knows him from bands like Phantasmagoria and LIN (凛).

The news is that his band “chariots” are back! They began their journey already back in 2007 but has slumbered into inactivity from time to time. However, this time I hope they’re back to stay active for a long time, even though some of the members are active in other bands as well. Let’s take a look at the lineup and profile! (And don’t forget to check out the music videos below!)

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.
