The roots of Belaphon day back again to 1982 in Kyoto, Japan, when Taiqui Tomiie and Mitsutaka Kaki joined up with Starless. After half a year the group split up and Tomiie and Kaki installed with Toshihiro Tanaka and Isamu Kakitani to create Bellaphon. It had been shortly before Kakitani remaining the group. Acquiring his place was Yuji Ono. When Ono remaining in 1984, the group didn’t replace him. Rather, Tanaka and Kaki used the lacking bass, with Kaki playing synth bass and Tanaka adding bass function to his acoustic guitar tasks. The group released an individual known as Labyrinth in 1985. Their Compact disc, Firefly, premiered in Apr of 1987. They do a tour for the recording, but shortly later on went through a reasonably dramatic personnel switch. Out was Tanaka and in as his alternative was Toru Ota. The group split up in 1988. Nevertheless, 1995 saw the discharge of Delphi, a disk of Bellaphon rarities. The next 12 months noticed a reissue of Firefly on Musea Information. In 1997 Kaki and Tomiie started attempts to reunite Bellaphon, but Tanaka was unavailable because of personal factors. They recruited Masahiro Torigaki to complete the lineup. By 1998, Yozox Yamamoto was put into the group plus they were once more a four-piece. Nevertheless, Yamamoto didn’t stick with the group lengthy and they proceeded to go inactive until 1999. For the reason that season, Kakuhiro Nishimura was put into the lineup as another keyboardist.
