Exist Trace (often typeset as exist†trace) are a Japanese metal band of the visual kei style, and comprised entirely of female members. They're from Tokyo, Japan, and initially formed in June 2003. To date, the band has released four singles, three EPs, and a compilation album Exist Trace has also appeared on two omnibus albums as well as one live DVD featuring several bands on the Shizuoka-based Sequence Records label. Exist Trace released a new EP on April 22, 2009, entitled Vanguard -Of the Muses-.
Exist Trace's music can be desribed as melodic death metal and vocalist Jyou growls throughout many songs, which contributes to the the dark undertone of many of the songs. Their guitar sound often features heavy distortion and technically virtuosic riffs and solos. Their sound is heavily focused on their bass and drumming, which helps define their musical style. The lyrics are mainly based on gothic themes, and their music style has resemblance to gothic metal.
