Deathgaze (デスゲイズ, desugeizu) is a Japanese metalcore band with a visual kei style akin to many other contemporary Nagoya-based bands.
Deathgaze was formed in 2003 by Hazuki, Ai, Naoki, and Kanna, who was soon replaced by Naoto. After releasing their first single, "294036224052", vocalist, Hazuki, left in spring 2004 to form his own band, Lynch. As a replacement, Sou joined the group in late 2004. The band released several more singles and their first album, though Sou also left in late 2006 to marry. In March of 2007, the band announced a eighth-month long hiatus.
On November 11, 2007, the band officially ended their hiatus with the bassist Ai becoming the vocalist and newcomer Kosuke on bass guitar.
As of 2008, Deathgaze has released eight singles (one being a re-release) and two albums. Ai is the main composer and lyricist of the band, even when Hazuki was still a member. He is also in charge of art direction for their CD releases. The band also performed under the session name Knohhoso (野っ細), playing cover songs of older and popular Japanese rock bands. Knohhoso also featured Ai on vocals.
On April 26, 2009, guitarist Naoto retired from the band and from music, but he stated that if possible in the future he would return. Their current support guitarist is Takaki, ex.ASS'n'ARRow.
