Visual kei emerged in the 1980s underground scene, pioneered by bands such as X Japan, Dead End, D'erlanger, Buck-Tick and Color. The term visual kei (the kanji kei meaning system, order, origin) is believed to come from one of X Japan's slogans, Psychedelic Violence-Crime of Visual Shock, written on the cover of their second studio album Blue Blood (1989). The movement designated a new form of Japanese rock music influenced by Western hard rock and glam metal bands like Kiss, Twisted Sister, Hanoi Rocks, Mötley Crüe, as well punk-gothic rock influence, and it was established in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The movement is roughly divided into two generations, with the first in three transitional eras, of which the first lasted almost a decade.
