View Full Version : Anyone seen any Malice Mizer music videos?

08-03-2003, 09:42 PM
Since I got curious about J-Rock and the whole Visual Kei thing, I did indulge myself in Malice Mizer's Merveilles and was pleasantly surprised at what I heard! It's been constantly in my car and been listening to it like crazy... even at my desk at work where neither I nor my coworker can understand a darned thing!

But... as with all things... I am quite curious if anyone's seen music videos of the band? I know they haven't been touring at all (doh... they broke up) but is there any way that someone like myself can view any of the music videos they've made?

Download WinMX (Kazaa's got that sueing thing going on I think...) and search the video files for MM PVs. That's where I get all mine from. But first you got to have Real One Player downloaded to view the files.

i've seen their illuminati video, and be fore-warned: it is NOT for young children or the faint of heart. ^^; seriously, it's a really cool video (one of my favorite of their songs) although full of bssm, blood, etc. i've seen their beast of blood video too (the newest stuff before the broke up, with klaha as the new lead singer) and it's a great song. the vid's tamer than illuminati, though.

my friend has a few of their live concert dvd's, and their concerts are very enjoyable. ^.^ i liked them when gackt was the lead singer, man they were great then. if you wanna some of their vids or live clips, i'd try kazaa. that's where i got mine~

08-03-2003, 10:52 PM
hmm all mine are standard MPEGS

WinMX is better for the japanese stuff seems to be bigger network in japan then kazaa.

08-03-2003, 11:23 PM
i didn't know about WinMX until just now, but Kazaa's still got a pretty good selection. i've got a DVD and a bunch of music videos and concert videos along with tons of songs. they quickly became my favourite group, and i'm very obsessed X-P some of my favs are the Illuminati concert video, the Bel Air PV (music video), the Au Revoir PV, the Beast Of Blood PV, and the Je Te Veux and Brise concert videos. go to http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Shrine/1025/index.html and click on Malice Mizer to see some good group shots of different styles they've gone through with Gackt.

Their music videos are QUITE good, especially from Merveilles. My favorite Malice Mizer video of all time is Bel Air. Their concert videos are so much fun~ I love seeing them all dancing, and the acting portions are pretty cool.

You might find some DVD's of their concerts and videos on eBay. These will probably be bootlegs though.

What is this KaZaA suing thing anyway? I've got over a thousand music files on my computer as well as several dozen movies and whatnot.. am I going to lose all of them? Is it worth backing them up?

Sorry.. that was a little OT.

Anyway.. I'm always a fan of the Beast of Blood video.. it is my favorite song.. and they all look quite sexy in it :D

08-04-2003, 11:28 AM
ach...my connection to winmx is horrible, all the stuff i try to download won't. and im not finding a single video on kazaa...is there anywhere else to look for videos?

08-04-2003, 12:36 PM
yes they do look sexy in Beast Of Blood X-]

but the RIAA is sueing people who share files on Kazaa, so if you only download and don't let anyone get any of your files, you're safe (for now, though they might somehow try to get downloaders, too, later on). you can turn off sharing in the options menu. so far they've been sueing people for money. if they caught you, they'd probably want you to delete the files, but all i've heard is that they took this guy to court to sue him for about 45 million dollars cuz his kids had about 300 songs - only because there's apparently a minimum fine of $1,500 per incident or something. dumb dumb dumb. so just don't share if you have a lot of files (as much as i hate asking people not to share).

every once in a blue moon you can find a song or video or two on a website. i know Kazaa has videos, so make sure you're getting on at night (depending on what time zone you're in) when a bunch of other people are on and you can click the search button a second time after it's finished searching the first time, which usually helps. sometimes i don't find anything, and then i search literally five minutes later and find a bunch. also, i've heard Limewire isn't great, but you might still want to try it. and then you could try to get a friend that has some to burn 'em to a CD for ya, hopefully. if you're gonna get a DVD (or CD) from ebay, do research to make sure you can tell that it's not a bootleg.

08-04-2003, 12:49 PM
Gah that sucks!

I'd be in it for like 200 million dollars!

Oh, and Limewire is so shitty, don't even bother!

08-04-2003, 01:17 PM
Speaking of videos, I'm looking to see if anyone has made an AMV for Illuminati. That is my favorite song(not my fav video though :-P) I was just wondering if anyone has seen or has made one using that song.

08-04-2003, 03:39 PM
beware of ebay thu abput 99% of the cds and dvds are bootlegs
the Price alone gives it away 15 dollers for a import cd (unless its a single) chances are its a bootleg.

Oh I better change my directory then.

I already got fined $100 yesterday for losing my concession card for the train. >_< Rip off!

As for buying Anime/JRock DVDs I do my shopping at Best Buy. They have a large collection [for a non-Anime store] and you can buy quality titles for pretty cheap.

NO WAY! What's the chances of getting a Malice Mizer video though? o_O

08-04-2003, 10:13 PM
the illuminati video might be the most disturbing thing I've seen in a long time.

Gardenia is a nice video. So far I can only find the live version of Shiroi. I really want to find the actual music video...

08-04-2003, 11:29 PM
....um, guys...?
(please refer to the rules page, #4 under forum conduct guidelines.)

Otherwise, if you're interested in locating actual sanctioned Midi-nette merchandise, we can help you with that. (Although, even that's a little off-topic for this forum, I guess. ^_^* All right, take this to the music board, and I'll help you there.)

Hehe, I'm downloading Illuminati right now on Kazza...is it more disturbing than DEG's Myaku? :P

08-05-2003, 12:17 PM
*cough cough*

"(please refer to the rules page, #4 under forum conduct guidelines.)"

I suppose there should be no more KaZaA talk?

Your best bet is to buy one of their concert videos (which kick a LOT of arse) or a PV video. "Merveilles" was such an awesome concert. A Japanese neighbor of mine has it and let me borrow it. I think I may buy it if I get the chance. ^^

Oh yes. o.o Myaku's not a bad one...maybe you're thinking of "Raison D'etre"? That was a pretty suggestive video. :p Which is worse? I'd need to see them again to compare. ^^;

08-05-2003, 10:07 PM
I just watched Illuminati today.. and it is quite.. err.. interesting XD

Nudity, Bondage, Vampirism.. the works! I like it a lot though.. :D

08-06-2003, 10:16 AM
AAAAAAAaaahhh! I didn't know I posted it in the COSTUMES forum not the MUSIC forum! GOMENASAI, GOMENASAI! *bows head repeatedly*

Nonono, thinking of Myaku :P It's pretty disturbing...hehe...that girl in it...with blonde hair...she scares me o.o;

08-06-2003, 02:30 PM
I love the Illumanti video, I think its awesome... Vampireism yummy lol!

But I have a bunch of MM videos... some of them I just cant track down like the movies T_T

08-06-2003, 02:35 PM
*laughs* I love it as well.. everybody is so sexy in that video :D Especially Gackt and Mana!! Mmm Mm Mm!

08-06-2003, 08:06 PM
I have seen: (and have them on my computer) Au Revoir, Le Ciel, Bel Air, Illuminati, Thinking Under The moon, Beast Of Blood, Gardenia and Garnet thoes are the videos. And the lives I have are: Le Ciel, Ju Te Veux, Brise, Illuminati, Syunikiss, No Pains No Gains, Le Ciel, Shiroi and Memory And Sky.

08-06-2003, 09:34 PM
Am I the only person who doesn't like the song or video to Gardenia? ^^;;; too bad, the outfits are so cute too. ^^;; Their videos are so good and so bad all that the same time... they just don't put quite enough money into them for them to look serious enough... just like a college goth film student project. ^^;; Le Ciel is so funny... dragging a girl out of the 80s and forcing her to choose between a burned city and a bunch of REALLY CREEPY angels with huge nails. I laugh so much when she looks up at Gackt and he tries to look back at her seriously... it looks so fake and out of place. Illuminati is... interesting. O.o No Yu~ki, don't suck the naked skank in the tub! >_< Au Revoir is beautiful and corny all at once... when I make my Yu~ki costume from that, I'm making a huge deformed clock with a Kozi doll on it,... hopefully I can kiss some puddles for a photoshoot too. >_< Beast of Blood, I think, serves as the music that Mana really wanted to produce... and the video portrays the song perfectly. You can tell the differences after Gackt left the group... his presence made for more sensitive feeling music... and of course he had to have a least one Caucasian woman per video. ;P He has his solo career for that now. *imagines Gackt running like a freak with the white girl in "Vanilla"* I'm mostly impressed by Mizer's stage work the most... they have so much fun. Mana really opens himself up on stage... riding bikes and such. ^.^

08-07-2003, 12:07 PM
they just don't put quite enough money into them for them to look serious enough...

I agree. I like the videos.. but they would look much better if they were cleaned up a bit in an FX dept. or something.. the only one that really is up to their music's standard is Beast of Blood. That is really sharp.

08-07-2003, 12:12 PM
...now i know i y i had the gut feeling not to get rid of WinMx...darn!!! now to download it again to get the Malice Mizer vidz ;_; well ty for u all who know so much more than i do of MM...and I call myself a fan...;_;...not worthy of them...*drools over Gackt*>.>;;

08-09-2003, 02:29 PM
The best PV is definatly Le Ciel. I mean... damn. Just beautiful. Gackt is like some ethereal grim reaper *__* *swoon*

Then is BoB (haha Bob). Mana's umbrella is just fucking awesome. Though those chillens are a bit freaky... with the eyes..

I do NOT like the video for Bel Air. I'm sorry, but Gackt looks like a damn football player. The vid doesn't even really make sense, and the random movie clips don't seem to have an actual purpose. Lizame.

08-10-2003, 01:24 AM
I love the Beast of Blood Video. just fits the song so well and Mana is so damn hot (yeah yeah I know hes a guy but he makes one hell of a goodlooking women)

Mmmmm yaoi.....

I just got the Beast of Blood video, so i will give my verdict soon. But I have seen screencaps, and they all look way hot. Yee-hah!

08-19-2003, 01:45 PM
dude KAZAAAAAAAA, its free and easy, my buddy has d/led like every MM video there is^_^ and there all great!!

08-19-2003, 02:43 PM
The only one I've ever seen is Illuminati. I had never seen a j-rock video before so the content definitely threw me for a loop since you really don't see that sort of stuff on MTV of VH1. Needless to say, I really liked it. I need more. Much more.

08-19-2003, 03:25 PM
OOOOOOOO I LOVE BEAST OF BLOOD!!!!!!! they r soooooooo beautiful!^^ yaoi babiz


08-22-2003, 04:57 PM
Forget kazaa if you are into downloading, try soulseek instead, it has some significant advantages, one being that you can peruse all the files of a person and chat with them too. You can search by chat rooms, ie, a J-Rock room and find someone with videos there. Have you seen the Malice Mizer Movie Bara no Konrei? Hope you like vampires... And Illuminati was pretty keen.
