'''SHAZNA''' was a VisualKei/Japanese rock band that was active from 1993 to 2000. And the time period from whence they debuted speaks much of their music as they are somewhat reminiscent of mainstream sounding music of the day such as AlternativeRock (early), NewWave and GlamRock. They also have a somewhat more 80s taste. Though it does help that IZAM (leader of the band whose choice of fashion was rather iconic due to its extreme cross-dressing feminine look) was influenced by ''Boy George'' and ''Culture Club'', hence the almost similar fashion.

Or in short: ''Japanese counterpart of Culture Club''

'''SHAZNA''' was a VisualKei/Japanese rock band that was active from 1993 to 2000. And the time period from whence they debuted speaks much of their music as they are somewhat reminiscent of mainstream sounding music of the day such as AlternativeRock (early), NewWave and Pop Rock. They also have a somewhat more 80s taste. Though it does help that IZAM (leader of the band whose choice of fashion was rather iconic due to its extreme cross-dressing feminine look) was influenced by ''Boy George'' and ''Culture Club'', hence the almost similar fashion.

They've reached popularity after the release of their major debut single, ''Melty Love'' on August 27, 1997. This would since become their SignatureSong from now on and be [[CoveredUp covered by visual artists]] in the future. Despite only 8 years being together, they've had an extensive career and released many singles and albums. When they disbanded in 2000, each had gained successful solo careers. IZAM by then had a less feminine look.

However, in 2007, they've reunited and released one single and album together entitled ''Heart'' and ''10th Melty Life'' respectively. On November 3, 2008, Shazna announced that they would disband and played their last concert on March 22, 2009 at Shibuya O-East which they did. While the band was no more, they were recognized as one of the most important bands of the '90s visual kei movement.
