Sitting here with the GF watching a pile of them.

Gackt
Malice Mizzer
Dir En Grey
TMR
and others

For those that haven't heard of this style. Think JPop meets Marylin Manson with more drama.

1. I only really know of one J-Pop band
and that would be The Pizzicato Five, whom I enjoy very much, although they don't really have a Marilyn Manson streak. It doesn't bother me that they sing almost exclusively in Japanese any more than it bothers me that Stereolab (whom I just discovered and am crazy about), sing mostly in French.

Can you provide a link to a site that features a lot of these bands? I would be interested in learning more.

The emphasis is on visual performance. The theatrics can be quite astounding.
