* CaptainObvious: They have a song called "[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment I Will Die in Loneliness, Because I'm Lonely]]."

* CaptainObvious: They have a song called "[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment I Will Die in Loneliness, Loneliness,]] [[ShapedLikeItself Because I'm Lonely]].""
** They also have one called "No Happiness Coming Tomorrow; Tomorrow the Dead Call Laughing." The second half pretty much implies the first.



* LongTitle: There are several examples of this when their titles are translated into English, including "Room 304, Cherry Blossoms of White Death" and "Tragedy is the Sweet Melancholy That Lowers Your Eyelids," but the longest one falls to "The Violence and the Darkness of the Burning Heat Entwines in My Heart". The Japanese title? "Hageshisa to, Kono Mune no Naka De, Karamitsuita Shakunetsu no Yami," the lead single from ''DUM SPIRO SPERO''.

* EpicRocking: Many songs, such as songs. Stand-out examples include "Mazohyst of Decadence" (9:22), "Akuro no Oka" (9:42), (9:42; note, however, that this includes the hidden track "Gauze -Mode of Eve-" and the song itself is actually 8:34, which still definitely qualifies), "Macabre -Sanagi no Yume wa Ageha no Hane-" (10:50) (and (10:50, and its remake simply titled "MACABRE" "Macabre" featured on The Unraveling ''The Unraveling'' EP which is 16:18 minutes long), even longer at 16:18), "Zakuro" (8:37), "G.D.S." (7:47), "Vinushka" (9:37) and "Diabolos" (9:52).(9:52; symphonic version is even longer at 10:10). Some of their remixes also climb into this; the Narasaki remix of "Decayed Crow" is a particularly noteworthy example at 9:15.

** ''UROBOROS'' proves to be the bands most experimental album and is a good example of {{Avant-Garde Metal}} and {{Progressive Metal}}. The album features several tracks that exceed seven minutes with a variety of instrumentation and many changes in mood.

* NewSoundAlbum:NewSoundAlbum: Dir en grey has made a trend of becoming increasingly heavier with each album, though not at the cost of their experimental roots.



** ''Vulgar'' saw the heavy addition of GratuitousEnglish lyrics and slight HarshNoise influences to the band's sound.
** ''Withering to Death'' saw the beginning of Kyo's insane screaming, as well as some Mathcore and DeathMetal influences.
** ''Marrow of a Bone'' was mostly noisy {{Deathcore}} with IndecipherableLyrics and trashy musicianship, and is seen by some fans as a landmark of the band's StylisticSuck phase.
** ''UROBOROS'' ditched the insane tempos and garbage-level musicianship for slower, dirge-like songs and massive, technical compositions akin to Music/{{Opeth}} and Music/{{Meshuggah}}.
** ''Dum Spiro Spero'' was basically ''UROBOROS'' musicianship dialed UpToEleven with the inclusion of [[UncommonTime arrhythmic beats]] and brutal breakdowns. The HarshNoise influences from ''Withering To Death'', as well as the louder bass of the older albums, returned with a vengeance. This continued with ''The Unraveling'' mini-album.
** ''Arche'' brought back the randomness of the first album, as well as adding influences from Kyo's other band, Music/{{Sukekiyo}}, and influences from [[PowerMetal other]] [[NoiseRock styles]] the band has not touched before. Though it could be best described as DeathMetal with clean vocals taken from 1950s pop music

* FollowTheLeader: Many other J-rock bands who were part of the second wave of VK have tried copying their formula, including those who worked under [[ThePeteBest former bassist and leader]] Music/Kisaki's Creator/UnderCodeProduction label, to various degrees of success. Those that did achieve success (Music/TheGazette, Music/ExistTrace, Music/{{Girugamesh}}, and a few others) have also established their own image and sound.

* DontTryThisAtHome: For career singers, Kyo's vocal style -- unless you ''want'' a short career with repeated injuries to your vocal cords and eardrums. It's far better you find an actual vocal coach or teacher, and if you can't or don't want to go that route, to at least practice with singers that have done so and that know proper technique to ''not'' injure themselves repeatedly [[note]]A few VK/J-metal singers with said technique are Ryuichi of Music/LunaSea post TheNineties, Yama-B ex Music/{{Galneryus}} currently with Music/{{Gunbridge}}, and Demon Kogure of Music/SeikimaII, the first two being vocal teachers themselves[[/note]]. Also, trying to sing through pain like Kyo does is a ''very bad idea'' that can leave your voice permanently and irreparably damaged. It's much the singing equivalent of trying to teach oneself drums from pre-1995 [[Music/YoshikiHayashi Yoshiki]] or learning guitar by copying Music/{{Dragonforce}}.
