Visual Kei band Raphael take their name from the archangel Raphael, the divine healer, and their concept is based on the idea of healing through music. This is reflected not only in their upbeat, very melodic sound, which is characterised by Yuki's beautiful vocals, but also in their costumes, which often feature white accents. Despite the band members' tender age at the time of their formation, they rapidly gained recognition in the scene, but disbanded after band leader Kazuki's untimely death. However, the other members have since reunited and released new material.
