Mysterious visual-kei band ‘VSK’ to cover AKB48’s songs for their debut album

“Masked Visual-kei band” VSK will be releasing their debut album “GOD SONGS” on December 9th.

There’s a high level of interest surrounding this mysterious band, as details about their background have yet to be revealed. What is known for sure, however, is that VSK will be releasing a debut album whose 10 tracks cover AKB48’s top hits.

This album will be a delightful combination of visual-kei rock and idol music, which should prove to be an interesting project for both worlds to listen to once it gets released.

<”GOD SONGS” Track List>
01. Heavy Rotation
02. Iiwake Maybe
03. Ponytail to Shushu
04. Oogoe Diamond
05. 10nen Zakura
06. Beginner
08. Namida Surprise!
09. Everyday, Kachuusha
10. Aitakatta


I appreciate them calling AKB songs godly.

I like Iiwake Maybe. Ponytail, Oogoe and Hebirote were a mess though.

I like Iiwake Maybe. Ponytail can be better though, however Ponytail is my all-time fav song so I'm biased :D
B'z troop did a better cover of Heavy Rotation and Ponytail tbh

I think the title is in reference to their Kamikyokutachi album

Ngl, I'm excited for this.

...though I'm mildly afraid that someday they'll unmask themselves and they'll all be like.... creepy middle aged fat neckbeards D:

I think it's a cool idea.
Will definitely stay tuned :)

Vocal sounds familiar D: But I can't remember to which jrock vocal...

I don't like AKB at all, but they made some of AKB's songs sound more bearable to listen to. Beginner sounds interesting! Although I think it's also because it originally is a little rock-ish...

Can't wait for album though! (imagine them doing covers of JE songs or something lol)

Exactly! I was trying to think who as well.. It sounded very oshare-kei-ish though (the vocals)

I can't wait for the album as well! ^^

So it's not just my ears being faulty! *high-five*

On some songs (those that were less processed), the way he sang reminds me of Hide (X-Japan). But I'm sure there's another Jrock vocal who's still alive that this VSK vocal sounds really alike but it's way behind my mind for me to remember ): I wonder if it's girugamesh's satoshi the one that VSK's vocal is similar to.
rebirthreborn 26th-Nov-2011 04:15 pm (UTC)
haha yep ;) I guess this is the natural reaction when listening to too much vkei songs ;) *high-five back*

Girugamesh Satoshi... I can't tell coz Satoshi's voice is 'heavy' and the samples sounded very 'light' (if u get what I mean xD) but they are almost similar xD I posted the sample link below this comment btw ^^

Ah the suspense! Need to know the vocalist now! lol!
wayof_life 26th-Nov-2011 04:20 pm (UTC)
IKR!!! I wish they look just like the digital art, so delicious-looking lol kinda otome game too oops

I get what you mean, satoshi's voice has more power. VSK's vocal sounds kind of weak tbh, without the heavy processing. Do you happen to know which record produced this album? Might give us some clue lol
rebirthreborn 26th-Nov-2011 04:23 pm (UTC)
And here I fear it's by vocaloids! lol!

Yep, VSK's vocals kinda weak.. More like he is probably from an oshare-kei band before.

Well, so far the only bits is that this album is produced by 'Rhythm Site', a label. Google and failed xD
wayof_life 27th-Nov-2011 01:21 am (UTC)
Gosh I forgot that possibility! But I doubt so because the voice doesn't sound that synthesized (thank goodness!)

And satoshi's voice is slightly deeper. VSK's vocal only sounds better when it's a very rock song like Beginner. Heavy Rotation sounds baddddd D:

Urgh I just couldn't find anything on them at all. The suspense urgggh I hope they get their own songs soon too lol

Interesting. Hmmm, I think I'll buy it.

Hell yeah. This means I am finally interested in something (_)KB48-related. Wow, bout time.

Who iiis it, it's going to drive me mental.

IKR! I'm very anxious to know the voice behind VSK~

I just hope they don't become famous/popular for covering songs.
hina 26th-Nov-2011 07:53 pm (UTC)
Noone in vk is famous or popular for anything so I wouldn't worry about it.

I don't know, I don't like AKB48 or VK groups, nor do I care much for Hirai Ken since I've never listened to his music, I just don't think a music group should be famous and/or popular for covering songs by other groups, even if the musical arrangements are rewritten.
