Profile
exist†trace is a relatively young, and not widely known, indie visual kei band. Their visuals can be described as typical gothic visual kei and, even though some of the members go for a more feminine look, their image remains dark. It matches their music well, which is gloomy and heavy with lots of screaming and occasional growling side by side with melodic singing.

What is unusual about the band is the fact that all the members are female. They're not ostentatious with their femininity, any more than an average visual kei band is, and many fans don't even realize they're girls. exist†trace is definitely a band worth checking out.

Vocals:Jyou
Guitar:Omi
Guitar:Miko
Bass: Naoto
Drums: Mally

Biography

exist†trace was created in June 2003 by Jyou, Miko, Naoto and Mari. Their debut live was held a few months later, on December 28, 2003.

In February 2004 they released their first free demo-tape, Hai no yuki. The following month the band's line up was completed by Omi, a second guitarist. They continued to perform live and, in July, they released their second demo, Kokumu, also distributed for free.

In August 2005 they released their first single, Ambivalence. 2006 witnessed the release of their second and third singles, in February and July respectively. From then on, the band's pace has continued to increase. In November they performed at Sequence Record's special event at Meguro Rockmaykan, the recording of which was released on DVD in March 2007. A few days later, one of their songs was featured on an omnibus album, SUMMIT 03, alongside SULFURIC ACID and HIZAKI. The year ended with the release of their first mini-album, Annunciation -the heretic elegy-, the first press of which was accompanied by a DVD with their first PV.

They started out 2007 by releasing a second press of their second maxi-single in January, and joined Gemmik for a coupling tour later that month. May witnessed the release of an omnibus album from Sequence Records, which featured the band's newest song.

In July of 2007 they released the single Liquid before kicking off their fall tour. Through the beginning of 2008 exist†trace toured consistently, hosting lives as well as attending others, including Fool's Fest 08 and Gemmik's final live.

In May 2008, exist†trace announced a suspension of activities, which lasted for three months. They reemerged with a revival live entitled Reprologue in August. In October of 2008 they scheduled a tour with Black:List and took Europe by storm with stops in Belgium, Germany, Paris and Finland.

In November, exist†trace released a new album called Recreation eve before beginning their promotional live performances. The band played through much of spring 2009, and on April 22, their new mini album, VANGUARD -of the muses-, hit store shelves.

The girls have a busy summer planned, performing at several events through May and holding a one man, Genesis Vanguards on June 6 at Meguro Rockmaykan. By the end of the month, they will again hit the road to appear in events throughout Japan.

Though still young, exist†trace has already proved their talent. They're definitely an interesting and very promising group, so keep an eye on them!

Boys look like girls and girls look like boys. Something is rotten in Visual Kei.

Exist†trace to debut under a major label.

On January 9th, the all female Visual Kei rock band, exist†trace, announced that they would be making their major debut during the summer with a solo live in Tokyo’s Shibuya BOXX.

As a “girls only” group, they are truly unique in the world of Visual Kei. But that doesn’t mean that they plan to rely on that fact alone. Their vocalist, Jyou, promised fans that they would aim for new heights, as she said, “We’re changing our field of activity to the Majors, and we’ve decided to keep advancing! It looks like we’ve still got a long road ahead of us!”

Recently, the girls hosted a live titled, “19′z Premium Party.02~Mayoi no Nai Ketsudan no Saki e~(A decision towards our future without hesitation).” Centered around their new song and latest album, “Twin Gate“, the group played 21 songs overall and incited a head-banging storm throughout the concert hall.

At the event, Jyou expressed her feelings about reaching a major debut, “The 5 of us have laughed together, had fights together, and continued to walk together even when we felt like stopping from hesitation.” Reflecting on their past, Jyou continued, “We want to show the proof of our existence, exist†trace’s music, to a lot more people!” She raised her fist to the air as she promised to tell details of which label and when their major debut single would be released at a later date.

exist†trace will be performing at “IRON ANGEL LIVE” at CLUB SEATE in Kichijoji, Tokyo on the 23rd. In April, they will be guests at America’s Anime Convention in Seattle, the “Sakura-Con” – this will be their first performance in America.
