Dir en Grey at Slim's

Dir en Grey performed a memorable and intimate show for California fans.

Well, better later than never. Even though Dir en Grey came back to North America in November, I’ve been swamped with a new job at a new company. Oops… Any way, Dir en Grey fans in San Francisco got a treat of seeing Dir en Grey in a smaller venue. They played a wide-ranging set from across their discography, but still leaning towards their newest album. Enjoy the picture set!

Dir en Grey is currently on their Finem Lauda tour throughout Japan, and will wrap up the Arche age with two shows at the Budokan on February 5th and 6th, 2016.

One of the most successful non-English speaking metal acts, Dir en Grey continues to defy classification. While their earlier work had more rock and punk tones, they’ve settled into a unique blend of progressive metal, hardcore, black metal, and gothic sounds.
While Dir en Grey is hard to place within a certain genre, fans of bands like Arcturus, Dillinger Escape Plan, The Atlas Moth, and Between the Buried and Me may like the experimental sound Dir en Grey.
