V. Ray / B. KISAKI

Producer-composer (and bassist) Tadashi “KISAKI” Matsuura is one of the most charismatic―and infamous―members of the visual kei scene. Active since 1993, he helped shape the scene in its early years with his famous record label, Matina. After the closure of that label, he founded UNDER CODE PRODUCTION, which again lead the visual kei scene in the early 2000s. His most influential glory days have passed, but he's still an important player on the scene, with various projects and his latest band, LIN. Over the years, he's had several solo projects with different names; this page is for his most personal projects, for which he only uses the name KISAKI, rather than KISAKI PROJECT.
