Japanese hard-rock screamo band Dazzle Vision posted photos on their Twitter account today previewing the release of vocalist Maiko’s voice-synthesized alter-ego. Famous for her “Death Voice,” high-fashion lolita style, and melodic vocals, Maiko and her band-mates recently judged an open-mic “Death Voice” contest outside Shibuya’s fashion landmark 109 building.
Japanese fan magazine Gekkayo has posted a download of Maiko’s voice compatible with the UTAU software. Competing Vocaloid software (from Crypton Future Media) was made famous by characters like Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin and Len, and Megurine Luka. In 2009, J-Rock singer Gackt lent his voice talents to become a character for the software Gackpoid.
Dazzle Vision’s new album “Shocking Loud Voice” releases May 4 in Japan.
