Welcome to Rose addict, a community dedicated to Kaya ( ex-Schwarz Stein, now solo artist) _______&; Ｑｕｅｅｎ ｏｆ Ｄｅｃａｄｅｎｃｅ → about Kaya Kaya started his music career around 1999 in a band named Meties, together they released 4 songs, a demo named RECUR to MIND + one omnibus song called ｢痛の空｣(Gekitsuu no Sora). After that he joined ISOLA, they brought out 2 releases: 2-track CD release called Egoiste Butterfly and a demo called Over. He then met Hora after one of Velvet Eden’s concerts, and shortly after they started Rudolf Steiner. They released two demo tapes, Queen of Decadence and Perfect Garden, before they changed their name to Schwarz Stein. Kaya changed his name from ｢姫｣(Hime) to "Kaya" and they started being produced by Mana. As Schwarz Stein they released 2 albums and 2 singles. In 2004 due to differences of their musical goals, they disbanded and started solo careers. However, in April of 2006 the two released a collaboration CD under the name Another Cell; Hora also wrote a few songs for Kaya’s first album. But backing to Kaya’s solo career, in April 2005 he announced release of his first single Kaleidoscope, it was released in July and followed by release of second single Masquerade in September. On the 26th of December, Kaya released his first album Glitter. It was announced early 2007 that Kaya would take part in a "Theatrical Rock Show" along with KAMIJO, Juka, HIZAKI, and 勇(Yuu) called ｢ノード・オブ・スケルツォ｣(Node of Scherzo). They had their first appearance at X-day on March 14th, and it was done as a rock opera, where they acted out a play, singing it entirely. They will have another appearance as Node of Scherzo on May 4, 2007 on the last day of their X-day II concerts. Back on his solo career, in April of 2007 his 3rd single ｢桜花繚乱｣(Ouka Ryouran) was released, with the theme of sakura/cherry blossoms. Though his solo project seems to be successful, Kaya said that one day he might join a band again or do a joint project with someone, but for now with his solo project he is trying to "express decadence and beauty in a way that's easy to understand" and would like to "establish an aesthetic genre of music".
