Formed in 2003 in the suburbs of Tokyo, Shuu and Nii had been friends since elementary school, the earliest incarnation of the band made its first performance while the members were still in high school. Girugamesh began playing gigs with their current lineup in 2004, until they were signed to record label Gaina-Japan. Their first major single, Kaisen Sengen was ranked #10 on the Oricon Indies chart.

In 2005, Girugamesh embarked on a nation-wide tour, after which they released their first live DVD, featuring footage from the tour, and after more touring, released an EP, Goku - Shohankei Enban.

In 2007, Girugamesh was signed to the European label Gan-Shin, making them one of the select Japanese rock groups to be distributed outside of Japan. The band then was part of a 9-band Japanese rock festival in Los Angeles, California called "J-Rock Revolution". They were part of the second night alongside Merry, D'espairsRay, and Mucc. Around the time of J-Rock Revolution, many of the bands released material on iTunes, including Girugamesh, making them one of the few Japanese rock artists to be available on the popular music store.

Lineup
Satoshi (左迅) – vocals, lyricist
Nii (弐) – guitar
ShuU (愁) – bass guitar
Яyo – drums, primary songwriter close

    i like 'em
    especially the vocalist's voice
    the way the music can be soft then suddenly get heavy
    i mostly like all they're songs
    but the ones i like more are
    smash!!
    Dirty Blue Blood
    robust conviction
    Volcano
    Deceived Mad Pain :D

    Happiness is the death, I think..

    I really like 'em. :)
    Hoe the vocalist voice is actually pretty soft, but still can get really dark. :RBhalo: He has a eally admirable voice.
    And I kinda find it funny how they look pretty dark, and I was expecting something really really dark or more metal-like when I first saw a picture of them, and then I heard one of their songs, and that really surprised me :D For the better ;)
    My favorite songs are Glamorous Sky and Owari To Mirai. Whenever I listen to them I just gets very very happy :RBheart:

    I think I came across Girugamesh around the same time I did D'espairsRay, and I love both equally. 'Having Betrayed Is Why' is probably my favourite, though it used to be 'Mouja no Koushin' (but I think I listened to that one waaaaay too much :RBstickout: ). With bands, I usually go for those with vocalists who can use their voice to make one feel what they're feeling (like Giru and Mucc), and those with insanely original musical concepts (like Malice Mizer).

    They are really WHOW! I've seen them live and then you can really see how skilled they are. Doesn't matter what album there is not one sing that is bad. Can't wait for their MUSIC album.

    Checking the forum out.

    The new PV, Break Down, I am not quite sure what I think about the changes in their music, but it's really great anyway. Satoshi's voice is so.. fullfilling? :RBundecided: Anyway, his voice is just getting better, but that is only to be expected I think :D

    Oh, and I love, in the beginning, when he kinda jumps into the picture, Satoshi that is. It's so cool. And there is a lot of other things as well.

    That is what is great about this band too. Their PV's aren't all that extreme. They are empty places, and they just have an fantastic editing. :RBhalo:
