An AWESOMETASTIC J-Rock
band formed September 9, 1999 by Karyu, the guitarist, after the bassist got him ridiculously hammered. The band has had a number of successes, including several tours in Europe and joining the RTOC tour in 2008 with a bunch of ghei bands, WAY beneath their level. D'espairsRay will be celebrating their 10-year-anniversary this year, hopefully unlike the last, in which Karyu looked as if he was about to puke all over everthing.
<b>HIZUMI</b> (vocalist)-- who posts blogs non-stop about the weather, bugs stalking him, and alien movies that make him go "tense". He's secretely a viking hamster who loves tobasco sauce, as shown from their show in Ruisrock and Wacken Open Air.
<b>Karyu</b> (guitarist/Fagman)-- who speaks in a strange, elusive manner, like a dying person attempting to give the protagonist in a crappy, high-budget movie info before they die. His nose is HUMONGOUS and very much beanpole-like.
<b>ZERO</b> (bassist)-- also know as the internet-addicted, picture-whoring Slutface. Slutface never gets off the intarwebs, and posts around 10 blogs a day on 3 different websites, posting pictures of his underwear, butt, and naked thigh.
<b>TSUKASA</b> (drummer)-- known as Mufasa, the drunk hick-farmer boy who can't farm worth a damn. The man can drink vodka out of a bottle, but gets a stomach-ache if he drinks coffee, while singing enka about Karyu's cat (from the radio station, Maniac Station).
Unlike most Japanese artists, the vocalist does not sing in that horrible, nasaly tone that makes you want to give them a tissue. Their live shows are 1000x better than the recording, and their fans (called Mania) aren't complete douchey douchebags... excpet for a few elitist Fan Club bitches who flaunt all their FC-only stuff, but refuse to show other fans when aksed politely.
Non-fans: If you don't listen to D'espairsRay, then you are missing out on incredible music... and the lulz!
Mania (nickname for fans): If you like D'espairsRay, then you live in DK, "D'espairsRay Kingdom", the happiest place on earth! :DDD
