Grotesque Romantica (2003)
|Years||2002 - 2004|
グロテスクロマンティッカー (Gurotesuku Romantikkaa/Grotesque Romantica) was formed in late 2002 but officially debuted in March 2003. In May they changed their name to Schwardix Marvally and toured Japan mostly with the UNDER CODE PRODUCTION entourage.
The band signed with the Third Stage-based label kapparecords and released their first mini-album, which was the final part of a series of three tributes to Visual Kei bands. The release was supported by several guests and included three covers (including a cover of Hisui's and Airi's former band Madeth gray'll) and their first self-composed song. Shortly after that bassist Rum joined the trio as a permanent member.
The first actual Schwardix Marvally release was sold at their concerts since January 2001 and hit the stores in another edition at the end of the same month. Sadly, this was the also the last work of the band, due to the retirement of Airi from the music scene and the consequent end of Schwardix Marvally.
Their last concert took place at Meguro Rockmaykan on April 17th 2004.
After the disbandment of Schwardix Marvally, HIZAKI launched his solo career, Rum apparently left the music scene, while Hisui has only played in few sessions bands (including 妃＆関西貴族 as singer or guitarist).
