Visual kei artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good visual kei bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top visual kei bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Visual kei groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all visual kei bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest visual kei bands of all time, since the most famous visual kei artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best visual kei music.

You can click on the visual kei band names to see more information about that particular notable visual kei group. If they're near the top of the best visual kei artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top visual kei bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the visual kei band names themselves.

List features Malice Mizer, Schwarz Stein and more artists. Vote for the best artists by giving them a thumbs up. When checking out this list and making your votes, think competitively, for example: is Kagrra, better than GACKT?

All important, significant and iconic names in visual kei music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new visual kei bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of visual kei, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into visual kei music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good visual kei bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent visual kei bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best visual kei bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest visual kei musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular visual kei bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

You can change the order of the list by having your Facebook friends vote too. (86 items)
