The day before the release of DIR EN GREY’s eleventh album PHALARIS, the band premiered the music video for The Perfume of Sins on YouTube. The video premiered worldwide at 22:00 JST, just two hours before midnight of the album’s official release on June 15. It has been about 3 years and 9 months since the previous album The Insulated World, released back on September 26, 2018.

The Perfume of Sins is the album’s third track. In this aggressive music video, we see vocalist Kyo being burnt alive in a torture device called the Brazen Bull, also known as “The Bull of Phalaris”.

The song is musical alchemy packing the intensity of their previous album The Insulated World, with furious breakdowns reminiscent of their early single ZAN ().

Over the past week, the band whet fan’s palates with 10-second morsels of each track posted to temporary Instagram stories. They also revealed a 15-second trailer for The Perfume of Sins.
