Gesshoku (月蝕) forms.
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.
Note: On various websites, the songs "絶望の箱" (Zetsubou no Hako) and "Think about death" are said to be from this band. That's not the case, they were released by a different band with the same name.
Note: The order in which the band's demo tapes were released and their lineup changed is not entirely clear. Especially the position of their drummer is uncertain. It appears as though the band had either more than one drummer (Shuu and a yet-to-be-named person) or Shuu left and later rejoined the band.
Note: The vocalist's name is written as 妖磨 (Yoma) on some releases, but a handwritten text by him confirms that it's actually supposed to be 殀磨 (Yoma). It's also often mistakenly written as 殆磨 (Hotoma) on the internet.
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 was likely formed around this time.
Around September, a live is filmed for a VHS release. Yoma announces their appearance at Kyoto Sports Valley on October 23, 1993 at this live. The lineup is provided on the VHS, a demo tape and the Rock Tengoku (ROCK天国) omnibus CD. Interestingly, the latter also includes a band picture with only three members, a fourth (possibly Shuu) having been cut off.

A sticker was distributed at this live.
Note: This lineup was provided on a flyer for/of the December 26, 1993 show and on two demo tapes. It's unknown why Shuu wasn't included.

Note: After an activity period of only nine months, Gesshoku disbands in February. At their last live, they were joined by Rei (麗) during a session, he and Kyo form Viṣṇu in April 1994. According to Kyo in SHOXX #70 (December 1998), he and Kisaki met for the first time after the disbandment live of Gesshoku.
