One of the bands which formed in that period was NOISY CROWDS. A punk-influenced visual kei band was nothing particularly new to the scene, but nevertheless their music was not generic and they were signed to Key Party records. Soon afterward, they changed their name to NOi'X and also had an image change. The band's first album, CROiX, was released in August 1998 and contained a total of eleven tracks. Despite the good start, NOi'X still was not really popular but they continued to play shows, often participating in Key Party events.
A year passed, and then in November 1999 the band released a second album, Deluge, which turned out to be much more dynamic than their first one. Exactly a month later their VHS Flowers appeared in stores. The future was looking bright, but June 30, 2000 witnessed the release of their last CD, Ende Noi'. However, only two tracks on the album were by NOi'X, and the other songs were contributed by other bands on the label. The reason for their break up is unknown, but fortunately, the end of the band wasn't the last that we heard from its members.
Except for LUCCA, all of them went on to create new bands, though the majority of these also didn't last long. SHINA started モル・ノヲド (moll'e node) but is currently part of 弾丸少女 (Dangan Shoujo). JOE-NOSUKE and RYOTA started the band Ｊｅｚｅｂｅｌ, which also disbanded after two years of activities. JOE-NOSUKE then joined MATHONY, but the status of that band seems uncertain. Read more on Last.fm.
