Amidst the formation of ORCALADE featuring guitarist Takaki of DEATHGAZE in the lineup, we now have drummer Naoki following suit with his new band, dexcore, consisting of vocalist Kagami and bassist tetsu, both previously in Vent Croix. Coming at no surprise at all that they are all dressed in black. This comes after a statement published around March time, revealed that he was looking for members to audition as long as they met the criteria, so we guess these were the members chosen.

It has also be confirmed that they will be releasing a venue-limited version of their first single titled The Dead Sea that will be on sale at a later date. This includes a third song, Hunger, that is currently being distributed for free in stores. There is also a general sale version that you can pre-order now containing only two songs to be released on December 14.

In the meantime, check out their look and previews for the single and an even longer one for Hunger below. Tell us what you think! The fact that they don’t have an official guitarist despite it having such prominent part in the production process has made us curious as to why this decision was made but most of all, who is it?
