[Wikipedia.org] X Japan is a popular Japanese band founded in 1982 by Toshimitsu "Toshi" Deyama and Yoshiki Hayashi.[1] Originally named X , the group achieved its breakthrough success in 1989 with the release of their second album Blue Blood. They started out as a power/speed metal band and later gravitated towards a progressive sound, at all times retaining an emphasis on ballads. After three more albums, X Japan disbanded in 1997.

Besides being one of the first Japanese acts to achieve mainstream success while on an independent label,[2] the group is widely credited for pioneering the visual kei movement,[3][4] though most of the group's members toned down their on-stage attire in later years.[5] As of 2007, the band has sold over twenty million records and over two million home videos.[6]

On June 4, 2007 it was announced the band would reunite,[7] with the band performing on October 22, 2007, during which a music video for a new song, titled "I.V." was shot.[8][9]
