    I doubt anyone here would know just why the copyright holders decided to crack down though.

    It looks like Kamijo is indeed releasing some Lareine material (with video):

    Tracklist looks rather weak though.

    Yeah,

    first of all, I wrote "Rose of Versailles" but actually is "Queen of Versailles".

    I'm thinking of signing the Kamijo's Youtube Membership and check if there is Lareine's old stuff.

    It is because a lot of LAREINE material got put on Spotify recently. Spotify is connected to the YouTube copyright detection system, so now all the LAREINE songs on Spotify that also get put on YouTube get copyright claims.

    Am I searching Lareine wrongly on Spotify?:

    Because I guess there is "two" LAREINE on Spotify (LAREINE and Lareine)...

    And, for the big discography that LAREINE has I think; if this is it, is still poor!

    Here's something: if it's not the very first Lareine review ever printed, it must be close to it. From "Imperfection" vol. 7 (12/1995)

    LALIENE
    2-track tape, now on sale, 500Y (tax incl.)
    This is the second demo tape by "LALIENE". Formed in 1994, this year they are centering their activities in metro Tokyo and the Meguro Rokumeikan.
    Their sound is characterized by vocals full of painful emotion over instrumentals that are lyrical and at times intense. The first track "Dir en gray", in particular, is unforgettable.

    WOW! This will definitely be used in my LAREINE website! I'll go buy that magazine whenever I see it on sale!! Thanks so much! But I personally like the track "FĂ©erie" over "Dir en gray" lol! (other track of that same tape). But I know Dir en gray is much more popular, even so popular it inspired the name of one of the biggest VK bands evah!

    Lareine didn't necessarily come up with it though, that name seems to have been floating around forever. Dir en grey isn't even the first band named that XD

    Yup, I had seen their VK GY page before! But I don't know if Deg knew that band too, or if they only knew it from the LALIENE demo.

    So that even older Dir En Gray band used "En" as a "&"? Is that what it's supposed to be on Deg as well?
    Honestly, I never even thought about what the name is supposed to mean. I think I once read about where Dir en grey got their name, but the band didn't mention that they took it from Lareine, even though that is most likely the case.

    I suppose Dir en grey just sounds really cool to Japanese VK musicians for some reason so they all had to use it one way or another. I guess it's because it sounds German.
