    Moi dix Mois is the current project of Mana (ex Malice Mizer). He writes both the music and the lyrics, and arranges, produces and publishes the releases on his own record label, Midi:Nette. The concept of Moi dix Mois is a combination of opposites: beauty and darkness, elegance and aggression, creativity and destruction. Classical elements, electric guitars, harpsichord, church organs and deep operatic vocals give Moi dix Mois a dark, often hard and sometimes quiet, melodious sound. In keeping with their "gothic" image, Moi dix Mois' lyrics centre around melancholy themes such as world-weariness, loss and death. Mana is also responsible for the band's costumes: he and the other members wear the designs of his fashion label, Moi-même-Moitié. With their performances not limited to Japan, but extending to Europe, Moi dix Mois shows great promise for the future.

    When Malice Mizer began their hiatus in 2001, bandleader Mana promised to create "something new and shocking" and on 19 March 2002 - his birthday - Moi dix Mois was born. "Moi" (French: me) stands for Mana, the number 1 stands for beginning, the number 0 for eternity and "dix mois" (French: 10 months) for the duration of a pregnancy (which in Japan is counted as 10 lunar months, rather than 9 months). The original lineup, consisting of Juka on vocals, Mana on guitar, Kazuno on bass and Tohru (ex JILS) on drums, made its debut in July 2002 on Midi:Nette's Dis Inferno party, together with label mates Schwarz Stein. In November of the same year, Moi dix Mois released their first single, Dialogue Symphonie, followed by their first national tour.

    On March 19th 2003, their album Dix Infernal was released, followed by another national tour in July, whose final was recorded for the live DVD Scars of Sabbath. The young band also gave an interview on the TV program Hotwave and performed at the Stylish Wave Mega Force and Stylish Wave ILLUSION events, which were sponsored by the music magazine Zy. In December, they had their second Dis Inferno party, this time together with LAREINE, Schwarz Stein and with members of Fatima and Brain Hacker as guests.

    In May 2004, the single Shadows Temple was released. In July, Mana appeared as special guest at the Japan Expo in Paris, France, where he participated in a Q&A panel. From that point on, Moi dix Mois would also release their music in Europe and Mana's fanclub, Mon†amour, was opened to international fans. Later that month, their second album, Nocturnal Opera, was released, followed in October by another single, Pageant. In December, they introduced their new guitarist K at their Dis Inferno III party.

    In March 2005, their first European tour brought them to Germany and France, and the sold out concert in Paris was released on the live DVD Invite to Immorality. Shortly after their return to Japan, however, vocalist Juka left the band, forcing them to take a break.

    In March 2006, they returned with a mini album, Beyond the Gate, and a new lineup: the "reborn" Moi dix Mois now consisted of Seth on vocals, Mana and K on guitar, Sugiya on bass and Hayato on drums. In the same month, they played their second European tour and in June returned to Germany, where they headlined the Wave-Gotik-Treffen, the world's largest Goth festival. A planned US tour had to be cancelled due to problems with the organizers, but in July Mana appeared as guest of honour at Anime Expo in Anaheim, California, where he again participated in a Q&A panel. October saw the release of their fourth single, Lamentful Miss.

    2007 began with an appearance at the Stylish Wave ILLUSION Vol.2 event where they performed with, among others, Merry and Plastic Tree. The beginning of the year also saw the release of their third album, DIXANADU. In August they performed together with D'espairsRay at the two man event Dark Sanctuary, and in October they completed another successful European tour, which took them to six different countries for the first time. Finally, in December, they welcomed Mix Speaker's, Inc. as guests on their Dis Inferno V party.

    Mana already has plans for 2008: in January Moi dix Mois will perform at the Zy.stylish wave ILLUSION'08 Vol.1-2 event and release a live DVD of their Dixanadu -Fated "raison d'etre"- Europe Tour 2007. He has also announced that he will reveal a new artist he is working with to the public.
