Biography

There are many artists/bands known by the name of Jupiter:

1. Jupiter are ‘q. & a.’ (boy and girl!) from Paris. Jupiter deliver vintage-flavored lazer-disco songs that would be on heavy rotation on every radio station in a better world. The two members of Jupiter met on a dancefloor cleared by a slightly too retro hit. Their shared passion for a time tainted by glitter and care-free music drove them to bond together and write music halfway between “Thank God It’s Friday” and “Purple Rain”. They first gained attention following official remixes for Anoraak, Metronomy and Two Door Cinema Club. Their first two EPs, Starlighter and Vox Populi excited the blogosphere and allowed them to be featured on a number of releases by the French label Kitsuné.

2. Jupiter is a Japanese visual kei band formed in April 2013. Versailles’ amazing instrumentalists and band-mates, HIZAKI (G), TERU (G), MASASHI (B), YUKI (Dr) discovered a talented singer ZIN. Now they are all ready to play new music of “Jupiter.”
ZIN’s mysteriously beautiful voice just gives the unexpected chemistry to their already established gorgeous yet extremely intense heavy metal sound. Jupiter is one and only full of infinite potential of pomp-filled universe.
Their debut single “Blessing of the Future” has been released on 24th of July 2013 on Universal Music LLC/Thunderball667. The awaited full album “CLASSICAL ELEMENT” was released on August 28. As one of the most technical leading Visual-kei bands, Jupiter embarks internationally for the new horizon only they can take you to. Official site: http://jupiter.jp.net/

    Also according to the booklet Rookie Fiddler from A was the violin in tracks 3, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 13. The female vocalist is Ryoko Nakanishi.

    I think Sacred Altar is good, definitely better than some of the other songs on there. I find B.L.A.S.T. has a Dir en Grey feel to it.

    Also, Shining really needs to be a One Piece Intro. It sounds like a total anime opening song, and I mean that in the best way possible!

    Church Candle is awesome. It makes me feel like I just beat a Castlevania game and am sitting through the credits! (Actually, I think of Castlevania a lot when it comes to Jupiter / Versailles.)

    The new album is really great. Enjoyed all of the tracks including the more brutal ones (Sacred Altar is awesome; I dunno what you guys are on about).

    WOW! Jupiter's new album is super rad! I like just about every new song on the album. Red Carnation and Zetsubou Labyrinth are probably my favourite but everything on it is just good in its own way. Except Shining, it reminds me of 90s buttrock but more power metal, I swear I have heard this melody before.

    Last.fm really needs to sort this out to stop pissing off fans of both of the artists named Jupiter [2]

    氷の中の少女 is an okay song, just kinda boring and poppy. I like some of the guitar work but the song isn't super interesting and the guitar wankery isn't enough to keep me from hitting skip if it comes up in my music player. SACRED ALTAR starts out really cool but then got really stupid. What an awful song, yeah okay we get it ZIN can do cool gnarly vocal stuff that you couldn't do in Versailles but don't fuckin over do it.

    "Darkness" is cool (actually, I liked both tracks tbh). It would be awesome if Teru wrote another song like "吸血~麗しき汝の血~" again, or if they did covers from past bands as a B-side.

    Nekoppy: No, that is not a correct tag. This is the only correct tag, because they share profile with the French duo. In fact, "Jupiter" should be redirecting to this page.

    I love their new single! Darkness is awesome and so is ARCADIA.. and it's available for buying outside of Japan on amazon and itunes!!

    I really liked their new single. Arcadia was good even though I'm a little mix on the chorus. Darkness is a cool song and I figured it to be something "dark" but I didn't expect it to be all ZIN growly vocals. I thought it was going to do the typical dumbtarded VK thing and toss in a poppy chorus but instead. So that is a nice change in pace from just all VK bands in general.
