- DIR EN GREY has conquered the Japanese rock scene with lyrics that convey sorrow, darkness and anger in modern society. The band has received international critical acclaim for their masterful translation of the lyrics to their dramatic and at times shocking stage show, which includes self-mutilation with bloodshed.
DIR EN GREY - vocalist KYO, guitarists KAORU and DIE, bassist TOSHIYA and drummer SHINYA - became extremely popular almost immediately upon forming ten years ago, when they caught the attention of the CEO of East West Japan. Their debut was marked by the simultaneous release of three singles, all of which reached the Top Ten. Five albums later, DIR EN GREY added to their international success by solidifying their presence in the U.S. with the 2007 release of THE MARROW OF A BONE.
THE MARROW OF A BONE continued to build on the sentiments that had become the band’s trademark over the past ten years and exemplified the band’s technical precision. The CD includes 13 aggressive tracks, where “the production is as crisp as new currency, and the thrash power-riffing throbs like a carotid artery awaiting puncture” (Detroit Metro Times, 2/7/07). Tracks included “Agitated Screams of Maggots,” the title track of the band’s EP which was released earlier this year as well as “CONCEIVED SORROW,” “THE FATAL BELIEVER,” “RYOUJOKU NO AME,” “DISABLED COMPLEXES,” “THE DEEPER VILENESS” and “CLEVER SLEAZOID.”
While singing mostly in Japanese, KYO, via his expressive voice, is able to transition effortlessly from a deep growl to theatrical vocals that transcend language barriers. The Los Angeles Times wrote that “Kyo is a staggering vocalist” and “has stockpiled an extreme range of vocal inflections, from a guttural mutter to a tonsil-ripping scream—no electronic effects needed”.
Currently the band is touring worldwide in promotion of their most diverse album to date, UROBOROS. It was released on The End Records in a variety of formats this November 11th (11/12 in Japan through Firewall; 11/14 in Europe through Gan-Shin).

London was a blast!!
We faced some technical trouble at Pentaport and Sonisphere and that left a bitter taste on our tongues, but finally, we had one hell of a show at KOKO! It was great.
I think it'll be 2011 before we are back in London again, but let's make sure the next show surpasses this one, OK?!!
Today was our very first Russian show. The show actually just ended as I write this.
It was our first time playing for our Russian fans so there was a sense of unfamiliarity at first but in the end it was excellent.
We play St. Petersburg next and already we hope to be able to come back to Russia again in the future. Tomorrow we aim for a crazy chaotic concert for you!
I must say though, it's really hot here in Moscow! I think I sweat buckets today during the show!!
Everyone who came to our show made it out OK to the end?
Anyway, see you all at the Glav Club!!
