Introducing: SERAPH = The Sovereign Angel

Sometime ago, news has come out that DIR EN GREY’s drummer, Shinya, started a new project, his first solo project outside the band. The project is called SERAPH, a self-produced musical duo consisting of Shinya and the mysterious Moa (piano & vocal).

The two elegantly combine philosophical and revealing lyrics, beautiful melodies and epic orchestra with ambient sounds; a heavenly blend of their drums and piano skills.

SERAPH will release their debut single Génesi on July 5, 2017. It will initially be released on various online platforms including iTunes and dwango, and then later released on CD & DVD on August 18, 2017. Génesi is the main theme for the Japanese movie Reigantantei-Karutetto, which premiered in June 2017. Destino (another SERAPH song) is the opening theme for the same movie. Both songs represent the type of masterpieces that SERAPH promises to bring to their audience.

Ken Nikai directed the lyric video for Génesi. The man has also worked on well-known movies, TV shows and music videos for HYDE, VAMPS, L’Arc~en~Ciel, SUGIZO and many others. SERAPH’s world view image is well portrayed within Génesi.

From now, SERAPH will be actively attending major overseas music festivals and events, wishing to spread its message throughout the world!

Make sure to stay tuned for more exciting info and releases from SERAPH!
