    First thought when I saw this was "This is so going to be Dir En Grey`s Obscure." I was not disappointed. BTW this should be marked NSFW. It`s a very graphic tribute to lust and abortion for those wondering.

    It`s Dir En Grey.. They specialize in horrifying metal...

    The vocalist is amazing though. He can do stuff with his voice I don`t think human beings were supposed to be able to.

    He`s also incredibly short, lol.

    I had the misfortune to see these jokers when they opened for Apocalyptica. The lead guitarist wasn`t bad, but the drummer sucked. The lead singer was just a prima donna. Somehow they have an american fan base.

    Dir En Grey is a band in stages. If you come at the wrong stage you may hate them. I particularly love their earlier stuff. Their newer stuff not so much. They are a vary diverse band.

    Plus their shows are mindfudges.

    ahhhh Dir en grey! they`re pretty hardcore, and it`s a weird song when you translate the lyrics. This is pretty old though, they`re much more mild now... One of my favorite songs from them <3 love hearing it live. And obviously you people have never seen Rammstein, also pretty...odd...and German, not Japanese.

    Japanese music (all music from asia in fact) are horrible and uncreative.

    These guys try too hard to be the next Manson and Reznor, but lack any genuine intellect and message in their work.

    This is coming from someone who has extensive experience with Asian pop culture.

    @356094, you almost seem to have no idea who Dir en Grey is. I am disappoint. Severely disappoint.

    I will forever be a fan of Dir En Grey. This song and video are actually about abortion, Dir En Grey is anti-abortion apparently. You can see the references in the woman eating the baby heads from the tree :D And all the promiscuous sex and what not. It`s surprisingly deep! They are quite an amazing band. Kyo`s voice is amazing also

    you took the words right out of my mouth. They also hated that many people were not being responsible and were using abortion like birth control since actual BC wasn`t widely available until 2010 (and this video is really old, I saw it back in high school and I just finished my Master`s degree). Honestly, I can watch this video 5 times in a row and not have a problem. And, yes I do like their singing, it`s different.

    LOL No they weren`t. Their pop culture is a culmination of western pop cultures.

    Their music is all western influenced with the exception of the lack of genuine originality.
