Biography

There are various bands/artists under the name Versailles:

1) A Japanese visual kei band

A Japanese symphonic metal band formed in 2007. Versailles’ key characteristics are their rococo-esque costumes, dueling guitar sounds and heavy but melodic arrangements. The concept is a formula of “absolute beauty and extreme aestheticism”. The duel guitars sound like rose vines grown riot over an agitated rhythm. Those sounds sketch the story of “The Descendants of the Rose”. In August 2008, the band had to change their name because of a trademark issue in the USA. Another artist there called themselves Versailles, and warned the band through their lawyer not to use the name in American territory. So the band added “Philharmonic Quintet” after the name Versailles. Versailles was formed by KAMIJO (vocals), HIZAKI and TERU (guitars), Jasmine You (bass) and YUKI (drums). On August 9th, 2009, bassist Jasmine You suddenly passed away, only 30 years old. Due to this tragic event, the planned major debut on Warner Music Japan was delayed to January 2010. In September 2010, Versailles announced that their temporary support bassist Masashi (ex- ALPHA and Ash) will be the 6th member of the band, while Jasmine You will remain an “Eternal Member” of Versailles.

    Except they're the new Malice Mizer with bad blood between Kamijo and the other members and keep us waiting for ten more years before they officially disband.

    I wish they could build off the concept and sound of "Noble" i really liked their symphonic sound and kamijo's vocals in that album. Really I'd just love a great album from them again some day.

    Who cared about the cheesy and generic story anyways. It was total trash. At least Masashi brought some bass-skills to the table. Jasmine did nothing i could hear.

    Was Masashi ever given a role in their story? I know Jasmine was supposed to be the witch, but he doesn't really look like he assumed that role once he joined.

    The bio will need no updates for years, judging by how long Kamijo is taking to record his music. Kamijo released only 1 single since Versailles' hiatus began a year ago, and the next release, which is only a mini-album, is more than 3 months away.
