History
活動

    1995

  • 1995-08-00

    According to Shinya in SHOXX #96, he and Kyo (京) met for the first time when Kyo came to watch Shinya's session band (name unknown, Vo. Unknown / Gt. #4 / Gt. SHIGE / Ba. KISAKI / Dr. Shinya) in August 1995.

  • 1995-09-00

    In the same magazine, Shinya mentions that he and Die met for the first time when Ruby and Ka・za・ri performed at the same live in September.

    1996

  • 1996-08-20

    Toshiya and the future members of Dir en grey meet for the first time when he comes to greet La:Sadie's after their live.

    1997

  • 1997-01-24

    The first concert of the band that would become Dir en grey. They met the day before and in the morning, they booked two hours of studio time to practice. At the show, they covered around four songs by Kuroyume (黒夢) under the name DEATHMASK. Toshiya also performed with D†L as their support guitarist.

  • 1997-02-02

    DIR EN GREY (ディル アン グレイ) officially forms.

  • 1997-02-02

    The name is a combination of German "dir", French "en" and English "grey" and, according to an interview in Apres Guerre #19 (March 1997), was thought to mean "Grey Silver Coin" (灰色の銀貨 Haiiro no Ginka). It was supposed to convey a music and an image that wasn't caught by neither black or white, so they picked "grey".

    Interestingly, there's a demo tape released in 1995 by the visual-kei band LAREINE, one of the songs on that tape is called "Dir en gray". It opens with the line "灰色のあなたに dir en gray" (Haiiro no anata ni dir en gray), which both means "To you in gray" and would actually fit the intended meaning of the words, as opposed to "Grey Silver Coin". In the aforementioned interview, Kyo also mentions that he knew that phrase before, so Lareine's song is most likely the source for Dir en grey's band name. Why they thought that "dir" means "silver coin" remains unclear, but they would later become aware of their mistake.

    In turn, Lareine got the name "Dir en gray" from a band called Dir & Gray, a visual-kei band that was active around 1991. The original meaning behind the name was "dill of grey colour" (dill is usually white) and was coined by guitarist SHOW. Interestingly, their name was written with the same Katakana as Dir En Grey, ディル・アン・グレイ, even though "and" would be written as アンド (ando) in Japanese.

    According to Toshiya on the radio show Nack5 FM Triangle Super Audition, one of the other names the members had in mind was Kisaragi. It was taken from a high school band of Toshiya.
