History:
D’espairsRay was formed in 1999 by Hizumi, Karyu, Zero and Tsukasa. The lineup has since remained the same and as of March 2007, the group has released several singles and EPs, as well as a two full-length records. Besides Japan, D’espairsRay have also toured Europe and North America in recent years, along with domestic releases in these territories. They performed at the Wacken Open Air festival in 2006, and a second album, titled Mirror was released on April 11, 2007. D’espairsRay will be on tour and on the Jrock Revolution set for this year [2008] Taste of Chaos tour with MUCC and The Underneath.

Opinion:
D’espairsRay+ isn’t a band that you could call cute and fuzzy since there are very far from it. The instrumental ‘Music Box’ is a nice example. D’espairsRay+ focuses a tone of music that ranges from violin work, to deep drums and the every present slight skin crawling feeling. If you listen to ‘Gothic’ at a high volume I suggest you turn it down abit after Hizumi finishes off his screaming vocals. There is a high pitched scream/screetch. If anything the members of D’espairs are unique in their own very way creepy/loving way. Some of my favorite PV’s of them is Garnet and Squall.

  10. AHHHH…THYE ROCKS…I ESPICALLY LOVE THE PV….TRICKSTAR!! CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THEM PERFORM!!

  11. does any1 know where i can find all of their songs translated?.. T_T i don’t understand japanese….yet… =P

  12. All their songs, or a certain one?

  13. All of them….i like where they all are so i don’t have to keep typing in google a million times >_<

  14. Try these:
    All the Lyrics

    DespairsRay

    No one site will have everything, so you’ll have to keep looking. The best thing you can search would be the band name, song title, then add lyric translation and see what you get.

  15. me again, any1 know where i can find Lyrics to Murder Freaks, Fallen and Spider?….Google…is..a i’ve been thru at least 50 sites for each song >__<

  16. I think they have translations to their songs at hearjapan. http://www.hearjapan.com/store/album_info/Squall
    You gotta purchase the single, but I think it comes with translations, mp3s and cover art.
