Today's Display of Visual Kei: Dir en Grey

Today Japablum would like to introduce you to the members of Dir en Grey, a rock band who may have moved on from their earlier flirtations with Visual Kei style but, thanks to the magic of photography and the irresponsible behavior of bloggers (not us!), can be forever pigeonholed as the glammy eyeliner bandits they once were.
