Since 1997, DIR EN GREY have become a huge name in the Japanese rock scene, Identifying with the youth of Japan and are finding their way into the darkest corners of the world. Their first year in the music business saw them rise from a top ten single and selling out 12,000 capacity venues to one year later having three singles simultaneously in the top 10, and they only seem to be getting stronger each day since!
Their flexibility and musical development guaranties each album is unique and not just compared with their discography, but compared with anything else you’ve ever heard. Having a fan base consisting of Goths, metal heads, rockers and punks, DIR EN GREY find themselves standing out in the crowd of what is the international rock scene and have managed to become as big as they have threatened to be since entering the world of rock beyond Japan.
