Note: On several releases, the band's name is written as "月蝕 -schwarz weiß-". It's unclear whether or not the band considered this part of their name, or just some sort of "flavor" text.
Gesshoku (月蝕) forms.
Note: The jacket of a VHS released by the band mistakenly lists the vocalist's name as 妖磨, but several other sources (including handwritten text by him) confirm that it's 殀磨 (both are pronounced Yoma, but the first kanji is written slightly different).
Note: Similar to their demo tape history, the member history of Gesshoku is unclear. The first lineup is present on one of their demo tapes, their VHS and in the booklet of the Rock Tengoku (ROCK天国) omnibus CD. The second and third lineups were kindly provided by seine (ex-Viṣṇu / Masquerade). At some point, the band apparently only had three members.
Note: On Sugizo Tube Vol.2, Kyo says he handed out leaflets after LUNA SEA's show at Kyoto Kaikan. Small bands usually do this, meaning Gesshoku might have been active around this time.
Note: A photo on Twitter shows a cassette that was labeled with this date. It is also mentioned by Gesshoku on their VHS, although the exact words are unintelligible.

Note: A band picture published in Band x Artist #7 (May 2000) is dated to December 1993. Among them is a member who was cut off in the booklet of the Rock Tengoku CD, so it was likely released in December 1993. Why the booklet lists four members and who is who is currently unclear.

Note: According to Kyo in SHOXX #70 (December 1998), he and Kisaki met for the first time after the disbandment live of Gesshoku. Since Kyo, Shuji and Rei were in Viṣṇu in April 1994, Gesshoku had likely disbanded by this time. According to various websites, Gesshoku was active for six or nine months, but a source for this information has yet to be found.
