As Dir en grey have matured, their sound has changed, becoming heavier and angrier with each album. While the Marrow of a Bone retains the melodic sensibilities of Vulgar and Withering to death, it is manipulated by the experiences of the bands first voyage into the West. Many older fans feared a descent into pointless screaming and to be fair, Kyo screams his way through the majority of the tracks here but his vocals are not aimless nor irritating, they drip with a raw ferocity that characterises the direction of the band. He also adds a new high-pitched static-scream to his repertoire of vocal gymnastics. Kaoru and Die's guitars are downtuned more than previous offerings to accomodate the new hardcore edge to the music. Toshiya's bass is as impressive as ever but the honours this time go to Shinya whose drumming reaches new levels with this album. Listen to the super-fast bass kicks in the chorus of Agitated Screams of Maggots.

As per usual, Dir en grey surprise the listener by opening their heaviest album with, wait for it, a piano ballad. "Concieved Sorrow" harkens back to the gloomy days of the Macabre album with its haunting piano and yearning chorus. From there, the album explodes into aggressive tracks like "Grief", "The Deeper Vileness" and "Rotting Root". The singles "Clever Sleazoid" and "Ryoujoku no Ame" appear in re-recorded versions, the former changed drastically to give it a more brutal edge.

Dir en grey do not forget their softer side and this is represented by possibly the best tracks on the album "Namamekashiki Ansoku, Tomadoi ni Hohoemi" and "The Pledge".

I bought this album when it was released in Japan, as I have been a big fan of Dir en grey for over a year now, and I am not disappointed.

When you first play the album the first thing you notice is how heavy it is, but yet somehow the emotion you would normally get from them has been tripled. Kyo's already great voice seems to have improved, even since the last album, this is especially noticeable on the extra accoustic disk, which has three of my personnal favourite songs on it Conceived Sorrow; Namamekashiki Ansoku, Tamerai ni Hohoemi; and The Pledge.

Whether you speak Japanese or not is unimportant, you will fall in love with this album more and more each time you listen, The meaning/ feeling comes across incredibly well.

All in all this is an emotional rollercoaster of an album, which is a must own for all lovers of the slightly heavier side of rock music.

The album itself is probably Dir en grey's hardest, most aggressive. While Withering to Death. saw them replace the beautiful sounds found in tracks like Red, Kasumi, Drain Away and Amber - the more ballad-like tracks of Vulgar - with harder, faster, more thrash-like vocals in songs like Garbage, Machiavellism and Beautiful Dirt, what Marrow of a Bone managed to do, is incorporate both the beautiful sounds and music along with the harder, screamed vocals.

The epitome of their musical fusion is the album-version of Clever Sleazoid (a slightly altered & re-mastered of the single), in which Kyo screams the different notes to form a heavy, yet beautiful track I personally consider an audial masterpiece, rivalled only by the 2010 demo-version of Diabolos (shorter version of the 10-min mammoth in Dum Spiro Spero) and the Unraveling 're-recording' of Unknown.Despair.Lost.

The Marrow of a Bone has its softer tracks like Conceived Sorrow, Ryojoku no Ame, Namamekashiki Ansoku and the Pledge, as well as its more brutal tracks such Lie Buried with a Vengeance, the Fatal Believer. Rotting Root and Repetition of Hatred. Compared to all other albums, I believe that only one track is lacking in real purpose and that song is 'the Deeper Vileness'. It's the one track that doesn't have an underlying tune giving the song a purpose. To those who love music even more the harder it gets, it's definitely delivers.

Japans dir en grey were something of an enigma to me until recently,i had heard of them,saw what they looked like in magazines,heard that they were part of the J-rock movement and assumed they werent metal enough for me and left it there.I,took a gamble on this album though,i found it really cheap in a shop,less than three quid in price and thought what the heck,i put it on and after the misleading opening track,which is almost a soothing ballad,my mouth hit the flipping floor,this was nasty stuff,capable of face melting and violent spasms almost,the band sound a bit nu metal in parts and slipknot like at others with the odd softer moment thrown in but in terms of gut wrenching screams from the bowls of agony and hell itself then this album will deliver,the singer is called kyo and he has some lungs on him,he shrieks and wails like the very best of them and the music is off kilter yet catchy as a frisbee.
This album is really good,i appreciate that this album is deemed their heavy album,and they werent always this way but there is something invigorating about this,it sounds modern yet not and violent yet comforting,i was wrong about this band on many fronts,this is worth a listen and then some.
