Dir En Grey

Does anyone (still) listen to this band?

Because I'm in their next music video, coming out July 26th. I also kinda became friends with Die. He's really nice.

That pretty cool, if it's true. I've heard of the band, but I haven't yet heard any of their songs. I'm trying to get around to listening to their stuff soon, though.

Oh wow! You are friends with Die? ^_^ Yeah I love them... I'd recommend random songs, but generally not entire albums of theirs. So ... I'll keep an eye out for you! Any possibility he knows this website? X.x

Haha I don't listen to them, but everyone here pretends to like them because the new fad is being a Japanophile.

dont know em but I´ll check the music vid. How can we recognize you Keaton-san? (*im hoping you wont awnser something like "u see the guy in the back and that guy standing behind him? Im standing behind that guy!")
Good luck with studying everybody and I hope one day I will be able to pick it back up.

Until then, a nice goodbye from me to you ;)

I'm the only normally-dressed person in the whole video. I'm wearing a suit (WITH pants-- don't confuse me with the guy wearing a suit jacket and a g-string), and I have broken glasses. I can give more details once I see the finished video.

What's the title of that song/video? I'd like to see it, I'm curious about why keat-san is in a video that also features a guy wearing a suit jacket and a g-string. ;)

Dude, that is so cool! I love Dir en Grey. I got the band tee and their Withering to Death album for my bday some weeks ago. They are one of the first Jrock bands that I started listening to some years ago.

Although the song name in Japanese is kind of intense, I'll post it here anyway assuming that anyone too young to be exposed to such topics won't go through the trouble to get it translated and explained to them ;)

The song is 凌辱の雨.

I would link directly to to the video, but maybe someone would get mad at me for "posting inappropriate material"? There isn't really anything graphic in it, but it is a pretty dark video and might scare the young'ns.

Anyway, go to google, type in "凌辱の雨 PV" (with no quotes) and the first hit (Barks) will let you see the video.

I'm the guy wearing the birdcage.

P.S. If you have no interest in heavy-ish rock music and dark, creepy music videos, I won't be offended if you don't check out the video just to see my (small) part.

EDIT:
OH! I forgot to mention. I kept in touch with Die (band member) and he's going to get me into their sold out show this weekend. I'm on the 関係者 list :D I've never been an "associated person" before!
