DIR EN GREY has gained notoriety throughout Asia and in more recent years, Europe and America due in part to their hard-hitting sound, controversial lyrical content and Kyo’s diverse vocal range.While DIR EN GREY’s musical direction is rock at its core, since their formation in 1997, the band has experimented with a myriad of genres which makes them increasingly complicated to define.

major – active (2002 – )
Made up of five members, The GazettE is one of the most popular bands on the PS COMPANY label, home to such other bands such as Kagrra, and Alice Nine. Although rock music is definitely the soul of this group, they’re not afraid to experiment with their sound, and their songs range from soft ballads to punk rock to some with hip-hop elements. The GazettE is a visual band, their look varying wildly from single to single and album to album, but their sound is always unmistakably ‘Gazette‘ rock.
