So They Really Like Dir En Grey In Japan

Posted by on August 1, 2011

Dir En Grey have a new album, Dum Spiro Spero, coming out tomorrow on The End. And while some metal fans probably already know about this in the States, it’s not like the Japanese band are a household name over here. As the above picture demonstrates, they’re a little more popular in their home country. They’re also likely terrifying schoolchildren all over Japan with this bus advertisement. On a semi-related note, even if they’re not household names yet in the states, the album did just get a B+ in noted (non) metal magazine Entertainment Weekly.
