Versailles' guitarist HIZAKI's solo project (previously HIZAKI grace project) has been active with different lineups from 2004. Initially characterized by the participation of few guest vocalists, it is now an instrumental project.

BiographyEdit

HIZAKI started his solo project in 2004 after Schwardix Marvally disbanded (he actually played a solo instrumental song in their last release too). He did not have solo concerts at that time and just released a couple of mini-albums with the help of guest musicians and vocalists.

In 2006 HIZAKI started playing live and recording songs as HIZAKI grace project with HIKARU (ex-IZABEL VAROSA) on vocals. His band at that time was SULFURIC ACID, and their other guitarist TOMOZO offered to release HIZAKI's solo efforts on his label Sequence Records. In November of the same year HIZAKI grace project announced the release of a full length album with a renewed lineup (which officially debuted on December 15th but previously had a secret live on November 17th). KAMIJO (LAREINE) worked for them as a sound producer.

The project was however meant to be short term as they billed their first oneman live on February 17th at Meguro Rockmaykan as their last. Shortly after that three of their five members formed Versailles with KAMIJO.

HIZAKI grace project actually performed a few more times in 2007 and released a couple of releases too, but with different lineups as HIZAKI remained the only stable member. From 2008 HIZAKI focused on Versailles only. He only came back to release a short instrumental song Prayer for the earthquake victims in 2011.

In 2015 HIZAKI revamped his solo project (dropping the monicker HIZAKI grace project) for the world tour Crimson Rose, opened his personal fanclub GRACE and recorded the full length album Rosario. It was released by Warner Music Japan, which also produced all of Versailles' major works. The album was instrumental and a few solo concerts also took place with support members. On October 28th 2016 HIZAKI grace project performed for one night only with all Versailles' members as guests.
