About Suicide Ali:
Formed by vocalist Goshi and guitarist Hiroshi, Suicide Ali breathed it's first breath in 2004. Described as a bastard child of deep psychological ideas and questioning, the band's music and ideas seem to explore and attempt to discover what truely is the meaning of life, from its epic battles to its smallest nuances. The two brought in Yuu on guitars and Hisashi on drums in mid 2005. Having only a few downloadable demos on their website, the band managed to gain wide notoriety with both the Japanese and American visual kei fanbases. When Yuu announced he would be departing the band in early 2009, Koji was welcomed in to fill the void. The band continues to bring its unique autonomy and outlook on life to the world, with hopes to one day conquer it.
