A new stage of Moi Dix Mois began on March 1st 2006, when they released a mini album "Beyond the Gate", this featured a new vocalist named Seth. Before the album was released Mana indicated that the sound would mean the beginning of a renewed direction for the band, possibly more integrated towards electronic music. After the announcement of the "Beyond the Gate" release was made, Seth's identity was revealed as the new vocalist, and it was announced that Kazuno (bass) and Tohru (drums) were also leaving the group.

- Meeting with Mana -
Ambassador of Visual rock'n'roll in Paris

 
AnimeLand: As a emblematic personality of Visual rock'n'roll, which is your glance today on this musical movement, and which you of its current evolution think?
Mana: First of all, the term Visual rock'n'roll was not invented by the artists but by the media. For me, this musical form mixes many things and is not really defined.

Al: From where does the inspiration come you when you compose and which were the artists who influenced you?
M: My music is a mixture of classical music and more modern things. My parents were professors of classical music, and thus logically influenced me. When with the modern part of my music, I find the inspiration in the events of tous.les.jours.

Al: How do you locate the style of Moi Dix Mois compared to what you carried out before? Is this for you a logical evolution of your music, you arrived from there so that you always wanted to make?
M: Moi Dix Mois are not at all in the line of what I could carry out front. The traditional side is marked even more. It is before a whole solo project.

Al: One often compares Visual rock'n'roll with the Gothic, as well with regard to the universe, the behaviours, as the music. Which is your opinion on this comparison? It do you find justified or reducing?
M: Indeed, in Visual rock'n'roll, the vestimentary behaviours are very Gothic. However, my music has nothing to do with this musical kind. I make above all, as I said it, a mixture of classical music and modern music. I try to create a single style.

Al: What do you think of the reception which is reserved to you in France and of the passion of the French public for your creations?
M: I of it am very content. I felt accomodated very well by the public.

Al: Considering your success here, do you think that it would be possible to import into France your range of clothing Moi Meme Moitie?
M: I there considered. It is not impossible, but it is not simple: there is a great difference on the level of the sizes between Japan and France.

Al: You are also famous for your particularly neat look. How long do you need to prepare you?
M: I need 2h. I make a point of specifying that I do all myself.

Facts:
 
~ Mana was inspired as a child by the band Motley Crue.

Rei-san's Moi Dix Mois concert in Japan. (Verry Funny!) Only The Begining is summarised.
 
So the lights were all green blue and on the stage there were cross grave stones and chains from the ceiling. I started to hear this horrible keening and I'm like, what neat sound samples, then I realizde it's a girl up front. Others join in screaming "Mana! Mana!" But it's not like the pleasant chanty sort of "ma-na, ma-na" thing you might expect. It like that stray cat outside during mating season half bred with a human kinda sound. And I am not exaggerating. She was screaming his name like her hair was on fire, "MANA!" with the end part sounding like she was being stabbed to death. This went on for like 15 minutes which by then I was beginning to wonder if her throat was bleeding. A part of me wanted to scream, SHUT UP! And not because it's irritating, but it really sounds painful the way these girls were screaming.

Occasionally a boy near me screams "MANA-SAMA!" Like they're really angry. I am still itchy throated and so I don't join in.

After a few more long moments of screaming the room goes dark, and the sound effects begin, thunder and lightening sounds and I admit I'm getting kind of excited. Then the stage goes dark and I notice these chains in the front of the stage. Hmmm I don't recall them being there, and then BLAM the lights go up and Moi Dix Mois is at the front of the stage in white sacrificial looking outfits all wrapped in the chains. They hold their bondage pose and I'm thinking, How the hell did they sneak up front, they must've crawled or rolled or something The crowd screams and the lights go out and again I assume they do their Houdini thing and the lights come up again and the show begins.
