Unfortunately I haven't heard Chthonic yet. However, I really like Dir. I've been a fan of them before they came to America, because I'm in to Japanese music. I know that's not very metal, but you know I don't mind. ::smile

Chthonic are Taiwanese, that's close enough to Japanese.

Dir en Grey are nothing to be ashamed of. Better than a lot of American music.

The poll is comparing two completely different styles of music. Dir en Grey = Japanese rock/metal. Chthonic = Taiwanese symphonic black metal.

You'd have to have an open mind to appreciate the finer points of Diru's music, like Caex, Sexymanbeast, and I.

There's nothing to appreciate about a band that sounds bad.

I don't think they sound bad at all.  Their live shows are super entertaining and fun too.
Chthonic isn't bad either.  I love the guitar work on Chthonic and the drumming is wonderful.

But in all honesty, I like dir en grey a lot more.

Whether or not they are better musical techniques and what not, that's something I'm not going on in this vote.  

I vote for Dir en grey because I enjoy listening to their music more than I do Chthonic.

Try their older stuff, such as [KR}Cube and Garden. Hell, even their newer stuff such as The Final and Merciless Cult have some great vocalwork. You just have to know where to look.

That's because Hot Topic sells their shirts. Anything at Hot Topic becomes the scensters' favorite music. At first I thought they might sound something like Chthonic, but no, they just suck.

Why is that? Japan and Taiwan are near eachother geographically.  Anyhow, it was more or less sarcasm.

But they have totally different styles! As a big J-rock fan, I can tell you so. ^_^ Take Korean music and Japanese music for example: J-rock and K-rock are totally different. It's just the culture's influences and such, I suppose.

And Dir En Grey isn't even CLOSE to scene. There's no scene kids in Japan. And that's where they originated from, so...

The vocals aren't generic, that's very true. A lot of bands have unique vocals in Japan. But once you get used to them, they're really quite enjoyable (to me). ^_^

Dir En Grey are for JROCKERS, not Metal heads/ Asian?..no offence... Chthonic is for sinisteric human being from America.. and so as taiwanee and other asians... and interms of skills..Chthonic pwns....Dir En Grey is also Visual Kei...which is something dudes might not like..

Chthonic are Taiwanese, that's close enough to Japanese.


Wow, you're a moron

Why is that? Japan and Taiwan are near eachother geographically.  Anyhow, it was more or less sarcasm.


But they have totally different styles! As a big J-rock fan, I can tell you so. ^_^ Take Korean music and Japanese music for example: J-rock and K-rock are totally different. It's just the culture's influences and such, I suppose.

And Dir En Grey isn't even CLOSE to scene. There's no scene kids in Japan. And that's where they originated from, so...

The vocals aren't generic, that's very true. A lot of bands have unique vocals in Japan. But once you get used to them, they're really quite enjoyable (to me). ^_^

I wasn't really comparing the bands at all.  I was just making a geographical comparison because you said you like Japanese music yet didn't mention the fact that chthonic is just a short little 500-600 mile boat ride down the ocean in Taiwan.

I see where you're coming from. :) But the cultures are totally different, they might as well be on other sides of the world, haha.

I do have to hear Chthonic, though. I've heard some great stuff about them.

Just because their asian does not mean they're similar. This would be like compairing Avenged Sevenfold to Gorgoroth.

I liked the stuff when they were VK the best though. Now they're trying to be metalcore for some reason.::pouting

I like all their stuff, and my favorite songs are IIId Empire, The Final, Byo Shin, and [KR]Cube. The variety in that is kinda weird.

They do definitley have variety. Even in one album they have several different styles. I certainly don't hate their new stuff anyway. I haven't listened much to their latest album, but I've been liking several songs on WTD a whole lot.
