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, power metal 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/
