Time to raise the stakes here on Freaky Trigger — before plunging them deep into your hearts — and get into some stuff that even Marilyn Manson might think twice about. Dir en Grey is a — what, thrashcore? — band from Japan who produce some of the most disturbing music videos in the world. There’s some real nightmare material here, so be warned. I managed to avoid some of the worst parts by being confused about which subtitles I should be reading.

Again, until I get the embedding thing going, you’ll have to follow this link to see the video for “Saku” by Dir en Grey.
