I have no idea what a "vizkel" band is, but I've never heard that term applied to the Velvet Underground.

Ah, thanks for clearing that up. In fact there are a lot of bands that start with 'Velvet' so I think there's one more I'm missing. But at least now I know from Velvet Underground now.

As for visual kei, yeah that's what I meant. The band I was actually reaching for too starts with Velvet, headed by Yoshiki of X Japan fame I believe.

Either way sorry for the confusion in the end.
