This is the first LJ community dedicated to the Japanese Visual Indies band, 天照 (Amaterase). [Because somebody had to do it, and it was fairly obvious that it would be me XP]
INTRODUCTION: "Amaterase" is the name of the Japanese Sun Goddess, the beginning of everything. Contrary to this, Amaterase say that although this is her name, they prefer the image that their kanji project.
The kanji used for Amaterase consist of "Ten", meaning heaven, and "Terasu", meaning shining (light). Daishi says that they want to be seen as "Ten kara terasu" the "Light from Heaven".
Musically, Amaterase's philosophy is easy to understand, and yet very deep and complex. They are an effortless blend of past and future, good and evil, dark and light; combining traditional styles with new technology.
Formed in 2001, Amaterase is comprised of 2 members, Daishi (guitar and programming) and Akira (vocals).
