Tetsu Takano first entered the musical background as vocalist of Ner-OUs, then in 1991 and he was 18 years old. In January 1, 1992, Ner-Vous’s drummer left the band and Kiyoshi Moro on behalf of that position, but not long since the band disbanded after two live performances. In March 1992, Tetsu came to see Kiyoshi playing in his new band (Kiyoshi), which was composed of the band Bass “Marawo” Kashimoto. Tetsu, Kashimoto, and Moro became close friends for years to come.
In Aug. 1992, Tetsu became the vocalist of Malice Mizer, a Visual Kei Rock band, along with Mana,
Közi, Yu ~ ki and Gaz. After two years together, live organizing, releasing a lot of demos, and a soundtrack on the Omnibus, Gaz Heaven from the band and was replaced by the Kami before they could finally release their debut album Full length – Memoire, in July 7, 1994.
Later that year, the album was re-released as Memoire DX along with a “Baroque” bonus track, but at this time Tetsu decided to leave the band. There was no exact reason for the passing of Tetsu until their last concert was made on Dec. 27, Tetsu revealed that due to differences in musical style.

A two-year period in Malice Mizer, Tetsu contributed to band composed of 8 tracks. Along with over 10 other articles; The band (including Tetsu) became famous abroad. Two of the songs, including “Ma Cherie” and “Shi no Butou,” were later released by Malice Mizer (at this new vocal, Gackt), which completely used Tetsu’s lyrics. This shows the friendly division from them.
Although Gaz joined Malice Mizer for a very short period of 1.5 years, the Gaz remained a part of them. Gaz left Malice Mizer on 15 March, shortly after the Yoyogi Chocolate City Show, however the information on Gaz was few, and some said that after leaving Malice Mizer, he joined the old band of Kami: Kneuklid Romance, and is currently playing with a band named The Night Breeze Zinnia.
