The Candy Spooky Theater are a gothic-experimental visual kei rock band that formed in 2003. The group takes influences from
visual kei acts like Merry Go Round, and heavy influences from overseas rock superstar Marilyn Manson, and concocts a
signature style, full of tongue-in-cheek horror references, and an occasional comic horror shtick. Today, the group is one of the
most popular independent visual kei bands.
