1999-2000

9th September 1999 is considered the date of birth + DéspairsRay +. We can say that this is the right time, because by the time all the previous group of four musicians disbanded. HIZUMI (vocals), KARYU (guitar),零-ZERO- (bass) and TSUKASA (drums) first met back in high school. However, the entire initiative belonged to the guitarist KARYU. They chose visual kei, because the musicians liked to express themselves, and the visual kei gave them the perfect stage for the rebellion and the creation of his music. KARYU called trinity of Tokyo, where they were gathered together in the studio and immediately made their first record, and it was on this night the boys decided on their musical direction. It looks like they had a perfect understanding about the music, and soon there was a first demo tape ao, which was available on some concerts in December 1999.

Full of energy and effort they recorded a few songs in the style of industrial and released two more demo tapes at the end of January 2000: [S] yste [M] and Sakura. The last song is also included in the collection called SouNDBeast, which was released on May 3rd the same year. The first concert took place at Takadanobaba AREA, and + DéspairsRay + addressed the audience of about ten people, but with each new performance more fans appeared in the hall. The band began a tour AN EXPERIMENT OF A HUMAN BODY July 25 and ended on September 26th. In the same month he released the fourth CD titled RAZØR. About four weeks later saw the light of the first indie single [Kumo] under the auspices of the XXX-Records, sub-label Speed-disk. Their external image at the time was very dark: they wore black and red patent leather with lace, faces were pale, in his eyes – colored lenses or a bright eyeliner as well as accessories can be seen studded collars. The release of the single was followed by a short tour, which began on October 29th in Ikebukuro CYBER and ended on 17 December in Takadanobaba AREA. At the end of the year the band entered the collection HYSTERIC MEDIA ZONE. A few days later, on December 31, at Takadanobaba AREA held the last concert of this year.

2001

February 10 musicians performed in BOTTOM LINE, Nagoya. This concert was the beginning of a small tour (only four dates), which ended on 12 March. Less than a week, as the group has already started to prepare a promotional tour of the new single. They recorded several songs at the beginning of the year, in particular, the band worked on the second single titled -genwaku-. The first edition of the disc (just 1000 copies) was the first and only completely sold out in the presale. The record company responded instantly, and in April, the market entered the second edition is not only the second single, but also the first one. The group really wanted to go abroad, but there is, unfortunately, beyond the desire not to leave. They gave a few concerts before the release, often preferring Takadanobaba AREA site. Shortly after the release of the single, to be exact, on April 7, the band played a special concert in the same hall. May 1, fans opened the door “almost official” home web page murder freaks.

Then followed a series of presentations: June 29 the band played a concert so loved Takadanobaba AREA, and on July 12th along with the other two groups performed at Meguro Rock May Kan. July 19 at Takadanobaba AREA held an event [D] eep69 [R] edorganized by musicians. But the group has not only acted, children were also able to find the time and write a new release that has turned rebellious and extremely provocative. This release and became the first mini-album -TERRORS-, released in July. Promotional tour with a very interesting title Tour – Nine TERROR SEEDS – began on July 19th with a performance at Takadanobaba AREA and sent a group of Nagoya, Hiroshima, Sendai and Osaka. He ended on August 29, the first solo performance + DéspairsRay + in Takadanobaba AREA. At this concert, which was named Sixth TERROR, fans have had the opportunity to get a free single of the same name. The first disc was a song [Monokuro] ni natta saigo no hifor which KARYU played on an acoustic guitar. The image of the group has changed with the release of the new album and became crazier and gloomy. Most stood零-ZERO-: light orange hair falling over her shoulders moved into the jet black locks, and the left side of his head was shaved in general.

Between summer and winter held some small concerts in Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya and Sendai, tickets for which were sold out. December 31, the band participated in the stylish wave COUNT DOWN’01-’02 in Yokohama Bay Hall.

2002
fans group began on January 19th from the second [D] eep69 [R] edin Takadanobaba AREA. A few days later saw the light of the limited edition Ura mania theater (1,000 copies). It was the first release under their record label “MANIAC RECORDS.” Musicians are thinking about a special design. On the tape was Valentine and the b-side [Monokuro] ni natta saigo no hi in a slightly modified Maniabreak Ver .. This release was followed by a tour round [mania theater]; it consisted of nine performances. The last concert took place on March 9 at the MUSE HALL, Osaka. The changes in the songs follow a change in the image of: bright hair, female hairstyles, make-up, long false nails and costumes made of latex and leather, which has been an integral part of the mesh top or non-existent. The first round of the record came out on cassette in May and allowed fans to look at what is happening behind the scenes of this unusual group. At that time, in the period from 1st to May 8th, the band have been busy in the studio recording a new single. 29th solo concert titled SEXUAL BEAST in ON AIR WEST, Shibuya. On June 5, the band released a new single SEXUAL BEAST (limited to 2,000 copies), as well as the second edition of the first mini-album. The booklet was a manga drawn by零-ZERO-, where he represented all members of the group for their favorite pastime. HIZUMI was depicted, peeking out of the cave, Karyu was hanging on a branch upside down like a bat,零-ZERO- was locked in a golden cage, and TSUKASA stood at the easel, holding a brush and color palette. Before and after the release of the single, the band performed together with Syndrome and Nightmare. Hair color has not changed, exactly as well as their love of black latex, but the musicians have continued to focus on the gloomy mood, despite the bright colors.零-ZERO- in its image really looked like a girl. A month later, in July, the second edition of SEXUAL BEAST. The booklet debuted black cat KARYU Ryutarou. This group photo shoot inspired by the world of fairy tales and vivid images and costumes: HIZUMI was presented as a green scaly monster, Karyu sat in a black velvet suit and hat in front of boiling witch’s kitchen,零-ZERO- – as Snow White with the famous red apple, and and dark hair and unusual gloves and TSUKASA was dressed like a clown. It took a little time before the next release from July 23rd to August 18th the musicians worked on the recording of prefabricated single. That summer the band played a short tour, spoke with Syndrome and deadman, as well as at an event at Takadanobaba AREA played with several other musicians. 8 September saw the release of the previously mentioned single called Ori no naka de miru yume (limited to 3000 copies). It also for the first time includes songs from ANIMAL MANIA, alter-ego band + DéspairsRay +. ANIMAL MANIA started as a joke, but because of the unfinished concept did not last long. The four musicians could not agree on who what instrument to play, and who sing. On some of the concert encore, they came out in animal costumes and performed one or two songs. Sometimes the roles are reversed, but often acted as usual. They also left their names, adding to them, “animal” (eg: HIZUMI-animal). In September and October, the group tracks included with the compositions of several other artists on compilations SHOCK JAM CD Edition.1 and Shock Edge 2002. When you purchase the album, which was released in September, it was possible to get even and stickers as a nice bonus. At the beginning of November Takadanobaba AREA invited the group to perform, and in the middle of the month at + DéspairsRay + played a gig in Sapporo Pennyland with Iroha, ViViD, S and many other artists. 23rd of a joint statement with his colleagues “the shop» Nightmare, NUDE, Doremidan, PERSONA and Kra in MUSE HALL, Kyoto. In late November, the band played a concert Chikashitsu de mania-tachi mikkai in Meguro Rock May Kan, tickets for which were sold out.
2003
During this period the group to think seriously about how to stop their activities. There were disagreements about the future musical style and whether the fans like it or not – a hard time as it is described KARYU. But they were able to overcome it and to set goals for the future. And so in 2003 to + DéspairsRay + it was a very emotional period of coups and different solutions. Who is (or rather, since 2006), they sit down and discuss their ideas, the process of writing music, lyrics, etc. to ensure that everyone had an opportunity to make suggestions. So that the songs of this period – the composition that are affected by all the band members. And something else has changed since then: before changing or improving songs stood in the foreground (that’s why the song returns with a new brilliance), but later the musicians abandoned the idea. In addition to recording in the studio + DéspairsRay + lots were both solo and in various activities with other groups. After a serious talk (around February) everything went smoothly again. In January, for “mania» (manias – so call themselves fans of the group) was presented to release Ura Video and secret single Itanji. A particular aspect of the design was the single fact that his cover was not a group name or a songwriter. All that was – just a few question marks. “Mania” could buy it at a concert. Most interesting is that this single was released a month later with three more songs and was named MaVERiCK (5000 copies). Four itself refers to the fact that this work is a turning point in their musical style. Fans seem to be such a change, too, relished, because a month later had to re-release the single. The first big crisis was overcome! The first major tour of the country with a specific name -Pregnancy eight months- (Translator note:. ‘Eighth month of pregnancy “) followed the release, and the guys were very busy with the placement of promotional posters, and mount them on the shelves of several CD shops. This can be seen in the record of the tour, where it was also seen that musicians and out of the scene is not missed, for example, in the gambling house or shared baths. From February 14th to April 13th the group gave concerts. As for the images, the boys changed their latex suits Coeur de Roi with lots shnurovok, black material and for HIZUMI, with a predominance of the naked body. Without stopping, the guys played a solo concert April 27 at LIQUIDROOM, Shindzyuku and encore came as a KARYU.H Zungle with T.com.They were composed as follows: KARYU (vocal),零-ZERO- (guitar), HIZUMI (bass), and TSUKASA and sat at his drum kit. A few days later, in the next month, the band embarked on a new tour. On May 5, the band appeared on the television show on Saitama TV “Hot Wave”, the second edition of the single advertising MaVERiCK. They also played another Mania-tachi chikashitsu de mikkai vol.3 in Takadanobaba AREA (May 23). At the end of the month we were in the stylish wave’03 Mega Force in Kokaidou, Shibuya.
