BACK TO THE BLACK MOON'S ANIME EXPO PAGE

Bands in the Visual Kei scene like Dir en Grey, Malice Mizer, and X Japan have a Pop edge to their music but their sound is generally an experimental fusion of Industrial, Rock, Pop, and Gothic styles. Combined with a penchant for cross dressing and outrageous costumes... it's not for the faint hearted. This young woman was dressed as Kyo, the male vocalist for Dir en Grey.
