Band: D


Vocals: Asagi

Bass: Tsunehito

Guitar: Ruiza

Guitar: HIDE-ZOU

Drums: Hiroki
Ex-bassist: Rena
Ex-guitarist: Sin
Ex (support) guitarist: Tetsu

Asagi, Ruiza, Sin, Rena and Hiroki created D in 2003. Right away they performed their first live in April, and on July 18th 2007 they released their first mini-album, New Blood.

Shortly after New Blood’s release Sin decided to leave the band, and Ruiza had to be hospitalised. During that time they continued performing, with Hide-zou and Tetsu temporarily filling, as Night of the Children. Ruiza recovered and returned, Hide-zou became an official member, and Tetsu left.

D’s first one man performance, “Believe or not Believe,” was held on November 27th of the same year.

2004 was hit off with another mini-album, Paradox, which was released on the 7th of January, and ranked thirteenth on the Oricon charts. On the 24th of the same month D held another one man, 「現実と非現実のParadox」. A few more singles and a re-mastered version of their first mini-album were released in the same year. A good chunk of 2004 was spent touring.

Another single started off 2005, and once again D focused on touring. “Yami Yori Kurai Doukoku no acapella to Bara Yori Akai Jounetsu no Aria” was released on June 22nd, and came with a DVD. In July Rena left the band in the middle of recording their first full length album, he was quickly replaced with Hide-zou, and the album was released without delay. When SCISSOR disbanded Tsunehito officially joined D as their bassist, allowing Hide-zou to return to being the band’s guitarist.

Over the new years Asagi didn’t write a journal for days, which worried fellow admin, Samehada, as to what was wrong. Turns out his cats were sick and he spent New Years along with several days after that in the Animal Hospital with them.

D’s second full length album, “Tafel Anatomie” was released in 2006, amongst the handful of re-releases.

They released their first live DVD, along with the new singles, “Dearest You,” “Ouka Saki Some ni Keri” and “Schwarzschild.”

D released another album, which will have some previously released songs on it such as “Schwarzschild,” and “Dearest You” on it. Neo culture~Beyond the world~ will be released on November 7th of 2008.
Opinion:To be honest I haven’t listened much to this band until a few days ago, I have no idea why I deprived myself of such a band. Asagi, wow, his voice is to die for, especially in “Ouka Saki Some ni Keri,” to me it is silk in musical form with obvious power behind it. I love the others too, but the voice commands me to focus my attention onto Asagi…despite the fact that he isn’t my favourite member. If you’re unsure of whether you should or shouldn’t give D a try, I say give them a shot, even if it is to hear Asagi’s beautiful vocals.
