Presenting Jupiter, now with 80% more Versailles.note 

Jupiter is a Japanese Symphonic Power Metal band formed in April 2013 by guitarists Hizaki and Teru, drummer Yuki, bass guitarist Masashi, members of the popular Japanese metal band Versailles, plus a new vocalist, Zin.

Jupiter continues to showcase much of the Visual Kei style previously seen in Versailles: androgynous aesthetics; fancy, elaborate costumes; and eye-catching performances.

The band released their first single, "Blessing of the Future," in July 2013, through Universal Music. Their debut album, Classical Element, was released in August of that year. Their second album, The History of Genesis, was released in January 2015. It was also Jupiter's last album with Yuki and Masashi as they departed from the band in April 2016.

Later in 2016, Jupiter released their sixth single "The spirit within me" with Cross Vein bassist Shoyo and former Roach drummer Daisuke as support members. The following year, they released their first mini-album, Tears of the Sun, with Daisuke promoted to full-time member and former Killaneth bassist Rucy replacing Shoyo.
