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!)
