ネガ (NEGA) // Combining vampires, horror and Visual Kei

With themes of horror, vampires and quite some gore, ネガ (NEGA) easily is the darkest artist signed to the UNDER CODE PRODUCTION label. (You might recognize this name because of it's owner KISAKI, who is probably most known for his work in Phantasmagoria, among other groups.)

The current European tour also marks the very first time here for the four members, but what do we know about these vampires, really? Despite this interview being done in a bit of a rush, I didn't want to keep anything from you.
So let's go!

Versailles // An enchanting story of “Lyrical Sympathy”

“Lyrical Sympathy” gives off an aura of sentimental despair. While the feelings of being shrouded in despair are consistently evident throughout the album, Versailles does not limit themselves to one style of delivery. The natural flow of melody, from intensity to calm and back again,

HITT // “I wanted everyone to aim their eyes at me since I was born.”

HITT is a multi-instrumentalist solo artist, who basically is a one-man-band because of that talent. Despite starting his career as a bassist, HITT now takes the stage with a multitude of instruments, as well as his own voice. His cheerful, high energy personality surely makes for an entertaining stage presence.

Before his show in P60 in Amstelveen I sat down with HITT to ask him some questions about the European tour, but also about himself as a musician. Because it's not every day that you hear someone say they're a multi-instrumentalist...

Versailles // The love story of a “PRINCE & PRINCESS”

Versailles’ third release under Sherow Artist Society, “PRINCE & PRINCESS”, at last gave a home to “Prince”. Though the album only contains three tracks, it competes with any other twelve-track album. It is filled with fairy-tales, heavy when due, but also romantic, expressive,

-OZ- // “We just want our passports to be full of stamps!”

Starting in 2004 under the concept of “美と大敗” (Bi to Taihai) (or "Beauty and Decadence"), -OZ- have a darker and heavier visual presentation than the other bands signed to LOOP ASH RECORDS, but you won't hear their audience complaining about that.

The group released their very first album "VERSUS" in 2009, followed by "Rouge" in 2010. The latter is also the reason they're currently touring here in Europe.
This tour is their very first time outside of Japan, and we really wanted to know more about their impressions so far - among other things, of course!
