A Japanese band formed in 1996. Consisting of Ryuichi Ishiyama on vocals, Kyoichi the lead guitarist, Tomoaki Takasaki on guitar, Yuki on bass, and Ryo on drums, their music is mainly slower rock. Ryuichi's voice has good range, and his lyrics are fairly standard, but there are songs where he is quite imaginative. Kyoichi's guitar solos are always complex, and the other member's parts are equally likeable.
They stayed together until mid-2001, and released a very mysterious indies mini album "R". Really. It's called that!
Damn, too bad I wasn't into Jrock while Lastier was around. I would have loved to see them play "Freeze Out" and "is the END".
