Utafumi is so good, it's a shame it's so short. The new version of Kuukoku no kyouon feat. SUGIZO is so so so beautiful, I can't stop listening to it.
And I honestly wasn't expecting a remix like that, but it's damn great!

Btw, am I the only one who prefers Dir en grey stylized like that and whenever writing their name refuses to write it DIR EN GREY?

I still stylize their name Dir en grey even though I know they shifted to DIR EN GREY a long time ago. So you are definitely not alone.

I'm kinda sad they're not doing a US tour this year. Or if they still are, it's gonna be on very short notice. Meh.

I was at Diru's Tokyo show on Wednesday. The light show was beautifully made and all in all the concert was very atmospheric. It was great to the them live again after five years. It was the 5th time I saw them live, but the first time in Japan.
What I find a little "disappointing", in lack of a better word, is that I find their songs to sound all the same the last few years and that I can't say which song is which. It's as if they're only producing this atmospheric stuff which is good, but I would love to have an album like six Ugly or Withering to death again.

Oh and their fans are so aggressive. -.- I'm just 158cm and even in Japan I can't really see anything at concerts. A guy hit me with his elbow a few times on my head and the woman in front of me was sticking her butt out so that I would make room for her. But people were pushing like hell and there was no room for me left and it's not like I wanted to cuddle with anyone there. Since I wasn't moving away she moved her elbow back in my direction but with such strenght and directly into my breasts that it hurt so much that I was crying. She wouldn't take her elbow back even though I tried to talk to her and so I was moving my arms to her back so that her elbow wouldn't hurt my breasts, or at least just a littlle, it was still hurting. Then she had the nerve to turn around and tell me I was hurting her.
I was so upsett I was crying again and she still was hurting me. She stopped after a few songs because the guy next to her moved closer and she couldn't stick her arm out like this anymore.
Kind of ruined the concert for me.

^^ Wow, i feel sorry for you

I have listened to the radio version of their new song, i can't say i don't like it, but... Yeah, their songs are so similar now, there is no fun anymore. Utafumi was released almost two years ago and there is no change.
I feel that UROBOROS was a really massive sound change and since then they just decided to keep that sound, only changing it a little bit with each new album, but nothing groundbreaking. From Gauze to UROBOROS each new album had a really different sound to me, and now they're not evolving anymore and heck, it's been 10 years since UROBOROS! I'm kinda bored with them now.

Thank you both!

Yeah I agree, their music became kind of boring. Back then they were always evolving and now they're stuck with one sound since ten years. I check out every new release, since I really loved them as a teenager and they still have a place in my heart, but I can't say I care much for their current releases. I liked Utafumi though, but I fear the new single will sound waaaaay to siniliar.

I don't know where this mistake comes from, I saw it a few times on the net now, but the new single isn't written in rômaji as "koumuru" but "kaburu". 被る is also on their official website written as kaburu, when you switch to English. Furthermore, even though 被る can be both read as koumuru and kaburu, koumuru means getting something or another meaning would be being haunted. Whereas kaburu means wearing something, like a hat or a mask.

Hey I'm recently getting into D.E.G. what would your recconmendations be regarding an album to start off with? Currently I'm obsessed with the songs "Ain't Afraid to Die" (old I know) and "Vinushka".

^Personally my favourite Diru album is Withering to death. I really love this one and consider it a masterpiece. Vulgar is also great and I like six Ugly too. Also songs I listen to again and again are I'll, Cage and Garden, because I like how old school they are.
Other than that I also enjoyed THE MARROW OF A BONE. Sadly, after this release, I didn't enjoy any of their albums. If you're into this kind of metal, you may like those albums, the style they atoppted ten years ago just isn't for me. But I would recommend the second disc of their self cover album THE UNRAVELING, the new version of MACABRE as well as the unplugged versions are great!
But I have high hopes for the new album, since I really enjoyed Utafumi (recommend to download the single, especially because of the track they did with SUGIZO, which is also on the single and might be one of the most beautiful songs they ever did), as well as Ranunculus, which was beautiful the two times I heard it live.
