  1. Hey guys! I am selling my lynch. collection since I keep moving from one place to another and it just takes up too much space. I am willing to negotiate prices to some extent of course, especially if you buy more than one item, however, since this stuff is still dear to me and some items are really hard to get and quite rare, I won't be selling them for less than their average market value.

  6. Hey everyone I'm still looking for TOUR04 The Code of Vulgarism by Dir en Grey. I saw a great offer on ebay a few weeks ago but sadly, the DVD had already been sold So if anyone would like to sell theirs, please go ahead Shipping from Europe would be ideal (shipping costs, payment etc). Thanks
  7. Hi

    Hi, my name is Kohaku I just rejoined this site. I had an account YEARS ago and I can`t even begin to try to figure out what my log in info was. So I`m starting over lol. A couple of my friends recently brought this site up and I figured that I should sign up again. I want to make more friends that like J-Rock (And DIR EN GREY)! I also hope to discover some new bands maybe. I also offer translating and finding merch services if anyone is interested in that. I go to many DIR EN GREY lives so I can get people merch that is being sold on the tours. Sorry this was such and awkward intro lol. P.S. I recently have been getting really into Pierrot and Angelo if anyone wants to have a discussion about them!
  8. Cash only, no trades. Always willing to haggle but please be reasonable! Payments made via Paypal. Buyer pays shipping (pricing will vary, especially if you're outside the US). I have a small collection of Dir En Grey merch I'd like to sell, although a few of the items are Kyo focused since he was my obsession at the time. All items were stored shortly after purchasing them, so they are in like new or excellent condition. If you need better pictures, just ask [VERY RARE] KYO's photobook 『for the human race』 condition: EXCELLENT - along the spine on the top left corner, the paper sleeve is slightly bent. [MAGAZINE] CD MAG - Sukekiyo/KYO condition: LIKE NEW - poster is included, never been used [MAGAZINE] GiGS - Dir En Grey condition: LIKE NEW [MAGAZINE] Motto2 - KYO x SUGIZO condition: LIKE NEW [MAGAZINE] Tribal Tattoo - KYO condition: LIKE NEW [MAGAZINE] Ongaku to Hito - Dir En Grey (2014) condition: LIKE NEW [DVD] [LIMITED EDITION] Tour12-13 In Situ-tabula Rasa condition: LIKE NEW
  9. So I didn't really notice much of a DECAYS topic on here , so I decided I'd start one ^ ^ ' I will be honest I like DECAYS more than Dir en grey even tho I'm more into heavier music , DECAYS is who I'll say I like the most out of the three ( Dir en grey , DECAYS , Sukekiyo ) . So I guess I'll ask some questions and you guys can answer to start a discussion yea ? Do you prefer when they had Yousuke singing with Die or Ataru ? My answer : I honestly much prefer Ataru . Her voice is really amazing and goes well with Die's . I have yet to hear a live video of her singing with him , but I really didn't like hearing Yousuke live when there was still a video of one of their lives was still up . What are your feelings about the members changes after Yousuke left ? My answer : I am honestly glad that Ayasa had joined in , all the Baby who wanders versions of the songs they remade are amazing in all honesty . I much prefer the Baby who wanders versions over Red or Maryam Red or Maryam or Baby who wanders ? My answer : Baby who wanders . I get to hear more of Die and the violin parts make the remakes so much better omg . What are some of your favorite songs ? My answer : Eve , Vagabond , Kireina Yubi ( 綺麗な指 ) , Drifting Litter , and Velvet Bird .
  10. Dir en Grey is one of the most well know japanese bands in the world, you can meet someone that doesn´t like japanese music at all, but they like Dir en Grey, it happens to me all the time... Today they are know for they experimental extreme metal songs, but, one day they where just a visual kei band doing they "true" things you know, for some is hard to believe that it is the same band. Released in 1997, MISSA is their first EP, the music was kind of similar to what they were doing in La:Sadie's, lyrical themes and etc... So, let's go! 01.霧と繭 I think that this song may be one of my favorite visual kei songs of all time(It is on my top 5 songs in my last fm chart). The song stars with a wind sound and Kyo whispering some phases and then the old school octave riffage starts with drums blasting all the way, the bass tone is just amazing in this one, love it! The solo is simple but i like it very much, it just done right. The song talk's about suicide, as Kyo means that he doesn´t need his cocoon(body) anymore. It's a fun fact, and who could imagine, that one day we could listen to a deathcore version of this song, done by the same band, but, i still preffer the original song for all it's context and epicness. Just a classic. 10/10 02.「S」 This songs starts with a frenetic bass drum kick ending the time count with the cymbals, then the guitar enters with a octave riff(i think they liked doing that a lot), the song has a, almost, danceable rhythm if you think about it, the vocal melody isn´t nothing special, don´t appeal to me too much. Overall its a nice song, just that. 7/10 03.Erode Remember that orgasmatic bass tone? aw god... I feel that this bass intro is somehow iconic to me, the guitar melody that enter to complete the intro is very nice too, i like how the first verse has a mysterious feel leading to a nice song. The lyrics are about lost love, and maybe, about suicide... just kiding. 9/10 04.蒼い月 "Akai sora, aoi tsuki..." Another classic old school Dir en Grey song, i love how this song has a odd 5/4 timing. Overall, the song is kind of repetitive, but in a good way, it doesn´t have a chorus at all, just a "Blue & Die" moment. 9/10 05.Garden Somehow, this is the most popular song in the EP, i think that because it is a upbeat song, not so "melancholic" as the other songs, it's more similar to the other upbeat visual kei songs of its time, it remembers me of my teenager years... Ah, forgot, nice song. C'mon sing along... "GARDEN sugi yuku kono kisetsu no naka de itsu made mooooooooooooooooooooooooooo" 8/10 06.秒「」深 They used to play this one a lot live, fast visual kei song uhuuuuu, headbang with your friends. Just to finish this EP in good mood, giving the feeling that they had a lot to show yet, the main riff is very nice. Ah, the song finishes with mad screaming, missed that... 8/10 This EP is undoubtedly a visual kei classic, the bass tone, the "true" feeling, classic Dir en Grey was very successful, the right band in the right time and country, no doubt this era is considered influential until today in the scene, Gri... cof cof eva... Buy this in the first chance you have! OVERALL: 8,5

  17. Hi everyone, I have a Tooru but just don't have the time to take care of him. I've had him since he was a child. I'm hoping there will be someone out there who will give him the love and attention he deserves. He's house trained and very well behaved, although, sometimes he screams, vomits, makes funny faces, flips people off, points at people, and throws things at you. You'll have to work out those behavioral problems but I know a very good trainer that we're actually seeing now. See photos for examples Another thing is he really loves hats. I mean REALLY loves hats. So, you'll probably have to buy him a new one every few months or so. These are all the kinds he has now. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this. If you have any questions feel free to ask me. Right now I'm taking offers for him so just PM me an offer. Shipping will depend on location. Paypal preferred. Tooru and I both appreciate this!

  24. FINALLY! Dir en grey - GAUZE It's time for some fresh views on essential pieces of VK/J-rock (sry) history! And what do we have here: The (major) debut album of DEG - and pretty much their most popular album in the scene...or WAS at least (I didn't research much about popularity amongst certain J-releases). Either way, the most atypical thing I am going to do here is "a goal" (which most reviews are not in a need for tbqh) - to knock on cliched claims concerning GAUZE that have passed from one generation to another (as in "older j-rock fans" (~2006) to "newer ones" (2006~)), for eg. "the poppiest DEG album ever", "the safest DEG album ever" etc. So get prepared! The first thing to mention is the fact that how they emphasize their members' skills in a whole album - there's room for guitarists their rhytmic co-operation and jamming ("Raison Detre", "Mask"), bassist with powerful bass tone and complex riffing ("Yokan", "Cage", "304") and of course a small spotlight for band's drummer ("304"). I think this is a good way to introduce a whole band's talent to newcomer in minutes or so - and I dare to say that this is unfortunately the only DEG album where this trait is "emphasized" (for instance, "WtD" almost isolated rhythmic players out of the mix). Thumbs up! "Poppy" is an adjective that tarnishes listeners' expectations and lets GAUZE stay quite overlooked in most occasions - and for no reason. Like most people, who were involved with DEG for years, I am very aware of the fact that DEG was always "abrasive" albeit constantly changing. For eg. The combo of Intro and "Schwein no Isu", "Mazohyst" and "Zan" are not "contextless tracks" at all, no - those and other non-single tracks are, in fact, the *actual* "main content" (= the sound that the album is supposed to revolve around). To support this statement, let's check out on album's build: *MC = "Main Content" intro - MC - breather - MC - MC - breather - MC - MC - breather - MC - MC - breather/finale - outro Of course, as you can hear it in certain MCs and breathers - "radio-friendly" accessibility is highly noticeable.It's accessible album if we rush a bit with my former comments, yes - but as I pointed it out already, GAUZE's main focus is not on the breathers at all, but on the dirty, old school vk rock worshiping, frantic rock sound with various influences thrown in (Kuroyume, Luna Sea, Vasalla - to name a few) instead. Take a note of songs they play off this album post-Blitz 5 days, and you will notice what I am talking about. Rambling aside, my actual views: thanks to its simple build - and figureable concept, or "the main content", I found myself liking and listening to this album more than to other releases. Many songs might feel quite apart to each other style-wise (newcomers hardly won't even try to tie such songs like "Mask" or "Akuro no Oka" into the same album), but they sure knew what to do with the flow - and kudos to them! I like how daring experiments were handled along the way, without radically weirding out on listener - cases in point, varying signatures role-wise in "Raison" and "MASK" + probably "intentional" offbeat/offkey frenzy in "Zan". Breathers are not bad either and should not be excluded due to bland "poppy"/"safe" statements - I might not be respecting the guy's deeds these days, but Yoshiki sure deserves a good pat on his shoulder for taking boys' musical influences and interests into account and "paving a way to the airwaves" without making them turn into total sellouts. It's no wonder that his productions ended up as instant J-rock classics though - radio-hits, but with a taste! And of course, the high nostalgia value of album's sound (to quote myself: "the dirty, old school vk rock worshiping, frantic rock sound with various influences thrown in") deserves an honorable mention; no wonder that people here and there suggest newbies to go with GAUZE whenever it's about "being introduced to old school vk" ! Low points of this album in my case would be the small amount of "daringness" in "304" and "Mazohyst" for the most part; the latter is of course supposed to gloom and give some sort of "taboo shock value", but nine minutes of Kyo screaming over requiem-y minors is just too much. Thankfully they placed the most accessible song of theirs ("Yokan") after abortfest to give a proper breathing pause, Phew. This is just nitpicking though. Final thoughts: some might assume that "I haven't even reached my goal" or so on - if you read carefully, you should have noticed through my instances that instant genre/mood-spewing is too risky here: give a few more listens, take a look at my "build scale" I wrote above and think more...don't let the singles fool you when it comes to realizing the actual content. Apply this to some of your classic favorites, and see it for yourself... Some big favs worth mentioning and a rating, go: - Yurameki: the poppy instance of Kaoru and Die's classic, fantastic ways of co-operation (which they don't unfortunately utilize these days) - Raison detre: interesting rhythmic approach and tasteful ways of using electronics - Tsumi to Batsu: the bastard child of glam rock reject and noise-y maniac banging? Yes! - Yokan: very accessible, but at the same time one of the loveliest, hummable songs DEG has ever done - MASK: odd but cool way to approach ska punk sound + that jam ending - Zan: something what you might think as a "lousy attempt at thrash metal" suddenly ends up as something ingenious | It'd be quite dumb to round up "4,75" (minuses for Mazohyst - nitpicking again, I know), so let's make it go that way. Brilliant, classic Japanese music release - a total must for those who want to have "their own bite" on old skwl
