"DAS:VASSER" means like "The Water" in German, a name that wasn't chosen unintentionally, as Kyohei explained about it once.
Just like water = always changing its shape, always in motion, sometime solid like Ice- the band has been developing both visually and musically further and further, thus creating their very own style.
DAS:VASSER started as your average "Visual-kei" indies band, with lots of make-up and clothes typical for Matina bands.
Their music has been pretty original from the very beginning, though. With their dark, melancholic and (at times) hard but melodious sound they quickly gained popularity among "Visual-kei" fans resulting in their live shows and demotapes selling out so quickly.
Through the years they've kept changing their look (from vinyl outfits, long velvet skirts and heavy make-up to suits and much lighter make-up), toning down gradually. Their sound became softer, too. However, that doesn't mean the band forgot their roots as they managed to put out albums containing both hard ("Matina-style") songs and straight rock songs.
