DIR EN GREY ◙▒◙ the 2nd thread

There are not many Jrock fans at AHS, even I haven't been listening to it as much as I did before, but I thought it would be nice to (finally) open the 2nd Diru's thread... hopefully some people might check them out and fall in love with their music just like we did years ago.

ABOUT DIR EN GREY

Spoiler:
DIR EN GREY is a rock-metal band, formed in 1997 and went major in 1999 when they signed to FIREWALL DIV. They made their debut with the mini-album MISSA. Dir en grey was formed by former members of an indie band, La:Sadie's, formed in the late 1995/early 1996. After parting ways with La:Sadies' bassist, KISAKI, the remaining of the band recruitted Toshiya (previously in D+L) and together they form Dir en grey. KISAKI has since gone and be involved in several indies projects, including KISAKI Project, Syndrome, MIRAGE, and now Phantasmagoria.

The band released their first mini-album MISSA in 1997. In 1998, they became the first Japanese independent band to enter the singles top ten on the Oricon music charts following the release of singles "JEALOUS" and "-I'll-". Five subsequent singles, arranged and produced by X JAPAN co-founder YOSHIKI, were published during the first half of 1999, the band's first full-length album, GAUZE, followed. One of the shows in support for the album (filmed at the Osaka-jo Hall) would later become the first of several live concerts to be released on VHS and DVD.

Originally their style was visual-kei, but later on, they settle down for a vaguely visual style. They drastically change their look with the release of each album. Most of the outfits from their Visual Kei-era are extremely elaborate, and as Kaoru claims in an English interview for Newgrave gothic magazine, he made his outfits elaborate on purpose to make it more challenging for cosplayers, or a costume player, to imitate the look.

MEMBERS
  • Kyo (京) - Vocals
  • Kaoru (薫) - Guitar, backing vocals
  • Die - Guitar
  • Toshiya - Bass, backing vocals
  • Shinya - Drums

That's true Anyway, the preview of Utafumi doesn't sound bad, it's just that I couldn't get into their last two studio albums at all... I miss their sound before that.

Like I said in the 1st thread, hope for their upcoming album it will sounds like a mix of Vulgar and Withering to death ^^ When I heard the preview of Utafumi, I was thinking Vulgar and Withering to death.

I just listened to a couple of sounds from them, I didn't fall in fall unfortunately.
But I have to admit that everytime I see a cover artwork from them, I'm amazed ! They're truly gifted with their albums/singles' art ! =O

Is the song only that short or is it a short version? I was hoping that the radio edit might not be the full song. Edit: never mind, I just saw on fb that it's the promotion edit ver.
Besides that, it's such a typical Diru PV... xD

I hope you haven't listened to anything from DUM SPIRO SPERO or UROBOROS. Because I can't stand this two releases and totally get why one might not like them. I would recommend to listen to their albums Vulgar and Withering to death. as well as ARCHE.

^at fb they said the video is the promotion edit ver. So there is hope.
But it would be a shame if it's not even 3 minutes long.

The PV looks great but the song itself is so basic and weak, kinda disappointed, they can do way better.

Alright but Shinya (drummer) and Kaoru (guitar) playing video games in promotion of Utafumi is the cutest thing I've ever seen them do in a long, long time.



Edit: I don't know why the video isn't working, obviously I don't know how to BB code still after all these years but here's the video. sry
