Dazzle Vision was a Japanese rock band. They appeared at Sakura-Con in 2010. After playing in Taiwan in 2006, Dazzle Vision released their first album Origin of Dazzle. They are well known for their heavy rock sound and female vocalist Maiko's alternating melodic/death-voice vocals. The band announced their disbandment in April 2015.
Dazzle Vision formed in 2003. The two main founders of Dazzle Vision are brother and sister, Maiko and Takuro. Up until 2010, Dazzle Vision did not maintain a steady line-up, changing the drummer and several guitarists. Because of the line up changes, Dazzle Vision has managed to continue on with their work. Past members of the band are Natu (Dr.) (2003–2004), Tan (Gui.) (2003–2006), Ryu (Gui.) (2006–2008), and Yu (Gui.) (2008–2010). As of 2010 the main band members consisted of Maiko (vocals), Takuro (bass), John (guitar), and Haru (drums).
|“||Our concept is Children create the world. Adults, who are moving the world and society now, all started out as children. As we grow up, we tend to justify escaping or compromising by making excuses. In a pure way, we want to deliver the thoughts we had as children to create a wonderful world.||”|
|— Maiko about Dazzle Vision's concept, 2010|
Maiko and Takuro began the band as an outlet for creation which is a part of the band's concept. The entire concept of the band is "Children Create The World" and is also a part of their logo. Drawing on outside sources Dazzle Vision grew its style. While basic influences from Western culture have impacted the band, several famous bands such as Evanescence, Black Sabbath, and Metallica have shaped the sound and style of Dazzle Vision. While the band self-describes themselves as Screamo-Pop, they have branched out into many different music genres such as alternative metal, hard rock, melodic death metal, progressive rock, glam metal, pop, post-hardcore, screamo and forerunners of kawaii metal. The band's albums each have a new distinct sound different from the last. Among the Japanese alternative scene, Dazzle Vision has made an impact, mixing its strong vocals, dark riffs, and powerhouse screamo rants.
