Right before that the earthquake hit, and my feelings toward the album changed. I felt, more than before, a need to enclose something within this creation. Dum Spiro Spero features some pretty sick guitar tones, from sludgy, fuzzy rhythm work to searing, overdriven leads. What sort of gear did you use in recording? Kaoru: Thanks! My amp was Diezel and my cabinet was Genz Benz and Vht. I used a lot of different equipment but for example on the arpeggio in the intro to "Amon," I used a small toy speaker for the Vanitas - DIR EN GREY - Dum Spiro Spero Member Commentary (CD).
Die: Depending on the feel of the song, I used many different kinds of guitars. For effector I used POG. You guys have always had a flair for the dramatic, but Dum Spiro Spero is even more expressive than usual.

Asian music ramblings of a sleep-deprived college student…. Home About. Still not what I was talking about. Just when you thought it was safe to go outside Yes, I know I'm beating this joke to death. We come in peace. Just give us your hairspray and no one gets hurt. Just look at that sunrise. But actually. Why so serious? It's just a fleshwound. Ballad make brain feel funny. Insert obvious statement here. This poor soul obviously wasn't ready for it.

Shitataru Mourou. Decayed Crow. Ruten No Tou. The Vanitas - DIR EN GREY - Dum Spiro Spero Member Commentary (CD) guitar is very prevalent on here as well, having a much grittier sound comparing with previous records, really bringing out some of the heavy parts of the album. However, Vanitas - DIR EN GREY - Dum Spiro Spero Member Commentary (CD) acoustic parts blend right in with the heavy parts, constantly changing and evolving.
The excellent production definitely adds to the experience, every track feels mixed perfectly. Everything from the echoing acoustic guitars to the dry-tight drums can be heard crystal clear. Dum Spiro Spero is a record with a lot of layers; this is an album that you probably have to give multiple listens to fully take in all the songs and you will probably notice new things each time you come back to it. As far as the drums go, Shinya is a drummer that has a very distinct style of playing, especially comparing with a lot of other metal drummers.
Last but not least, the vocals must be mentioned. Kyo is probably one of the more interesting members of the band. The range of his vocals is nothing short of amazing, you will find him doing extremely low growls but also these glass-shattering high screams. Most notably are his very soulful clean vocals which range from soft spoken to breathtakingly high and Vanitas - DIR EN GREY - Dum Spiro Spero Member Commentary (CD) hits every single note perfectly.
This is only present on some songs and done to enhance the song to some extent. A very interesting sensation that runs through this album is the feeling of something tribal and spiritual.
