Jupiter is an extremely talented group of musicians introduced to me by musician, journalist, and fellow blogger Kevin Pasman. I’ve never heard of this band before Kevin recommended them to me. When he said that Jupiter is a visual kei band, I honestly wasn’t very interested. I’m not a big fan of visual kei musicians. I think that most of them rely on their flamboyant costumes and make-up, rather than on the excellency of their music. That’s why there are only very few visual kei musicians that I genuinely admire; UCHUSENTAI: NOIZ being one of them. Nevertheless, I trusted Kevin’s judgment since he’s the expert (he’s a musician). He wrote a thoughtful review in his Kevy Metal Blog about Jupiter.
Boy, was I thankful for his recommendation. Jupiter is amazing. I especially like their song Nostalgie. It feels like a classical symphony orchestra modernized by power metal. The mellow vocals and romantic lyrics are the ultimate juxtaposition of this supposed visual kei power metal style. The lyrics just make me feel warm inside. It’s like listening to a love letter being sung. Instead of clashing with the music however, I think that the sweet vocals and the jarring beat harmonize quite perfectly.
Oh, and did I mention that they’re gorgeous? Too gorgeous, in fact. They’re too beautiful, especially the main vocalist, that I hate them a little. Just a tiny bit. I mean, he’s more like a princess than a prince, especially with his skirt-like coat and platform shoes. What’s up with that? But putting all of these aside, I think that Jupiter is a very skilled group of musicians. Love the vocals, the drums, and most especially the guitars. I also like that they have a female member. Hooray for all females!
I want to thank Kevin Pasman for sharing about Jupiter. Check out his Kevy Metal Blog. I hope that you enjoyed Nostalgie as much as I did.
Correction Update: As you’ve noticed above, I was mistaken that Jupiter has a female member. Fortunately, Kevin Pasman corrected me. He states that the guitarist named Hizaki is actually a guy dressed as a female. My apologies for my mistake. But man,
she’s he’s so pretty!
