Laputa

Laputa was a well known gothic visual kei band that originally formed in 1993.

The group finally ended up splitting by the end of 2004. Presumably due to their short run of mainstream success, Laputa is often considered to be one of the most influential and breakthrough groups of the Nagoya subgenre of visual kei, which is often characterized by its bleak and gothic-inspired sound. « hide
