Around 2004, the label folded, with all international projects either failing or signing elsewhere, and Music/DirEnGrey having moved to Creator/FreeWillRecords. The label would be reopened in 2007 for a VioletUK project, and now appears to exist only (now as X Project) for Music/XJapan's non-{{EMI}} and non Warner Media releases, Yoshiki's classical works, and Music/VioletUK.

One of the first bands signed was DynamiteTommy's {{COLOR}}, which would soon break from the label along with its founder to create a rival label, itself very important to the foundation and development of VisualKei: Creator/FreeWillRecords.

** Tokyo Yankees and Grand Slam went on as indies acts within Japan, both maintaining a somewhat lesser degree of success and going on hiatus at points, but both survived as such until 2007, when the original vocalist of Tokyo Yankees died, and Grand Slam disbanded. Tokyo Yankees would reunite sharing vocal duty among the surviving members and the occasional guest, and Grand Slam occasionally reunites to some degree for one-off events.

** X Japan itself continued on the label, before breaking up in 1997 and only reuniting many years later in 2008.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: If you like or support ANY band from the early era (or the early eras of X, Luna Sea, and the like themselves), sharing really IS caring. Due to everything from entirely unrelated news media outlets demanding removal of interviews and the like from YouTube to simple loss of fans via attrition and boredom, MUCH material related to the 86-93 era (the first round of bands, the Extasy Summits, etc...) is quickly disappearing from the internet. In a total aversion of DigitalPiracyIsEvil, pirating here is literally preserving history, especially when it involves materials that will likely never be released for money (interviews, TV lives, and the like)

* AggressiveNegotiations: It's arguable that Yoshiki and hide and some of the rougher existing members engaged in this at points, although not to the point of actually killing anyone, in trying to force some artists to sign with them rather than elsewhere or remain independent. One of the more [[OldShame shameful]] [[NoodleIncident incidents]] of these was the attempt to force Kiyoharu of Music/{{Kuroyume}} to sign with the label. * BittersweetEnding: The label's closing to outside acts and being (temporarily) absorbed as a unit of Warner Records in the middle of TheNineties led to this: ** X Japan itself continued on the label, before breaking up in 1997 and only reuniting many years later in 2008. ** Two of the other bands (Luna Sea and Glay) signed to major labels or went on as indies once more, staying together, and finally achieving massive success within Japan and even a small amount of global success for Luna Sea. D'erlanger became indies once more as well, and continues to tour within Japan even into TheNewTens. ** Tokyo Yankees and Grand Slam went on as indies acts within Japan, both maintaining a somewhat lesser degree of success and going on hiatus at points, but both survived as such until 2007, when the original vocalist of Tokyo Yankees died, and Grand Slam disbanded. Tokyo Yankees would reunite sharing vocal duty among the surviving members and the occasional guest, and Grand Slam occasionally reunites to some degree for one-off events. ** All of the other bands pretty much faded into obscurity outside of Japan and even there, their fandoms specifically. KeepCirculatingTheTapes is in full effect for almost any band that was a part of the first round from 86-93, as much of the material related to them is disappearing at a fairly fast rate.

* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Shiro is the only band signed from the beginning of the label that is a female mainstream pop act (amidst a roster of generally all-male HardRock and HeavyMetal and almost always Visual Kei bands - the only other female-led act was the hard rock band Kidney Thieves) - and the only act that's ''stayed'' on the label for all of its existence.
