Girugamesh (ギルガメッシュ) is a Japanese Visual-kei band, formed in 2004. The name is derived from the earliest known poem; Epic of Gilgamesh. The music of Girugamesh is metal with gloomy undertones, but recently the band has been experimenting with more electronic pop-rock sounds with metal. Formed in 2003 in Chiba, ShuU and Nii had been friends since elementary school, the earliest incarnation of the band made its first performance while the members were still in high school. Girugamesh began playing gigs in 2004, when the original vocalist Tora and guitarist Hotaru left, until they were signed to record label Gaina-Japan. Their first single, “Kaisen Sengen” was ranked #10 on the Oricon Indies chart. In 2005, Girugamesh embarked on a nation-wide tour, after which they released their first live DVD, featuring footage from the tour, and after more touring, released an EP, Goku - Shohankei Enban.

In 2007, Girugamesh was signed to the European label Gan-Shin. The band then was part of a 9-band Japanese rock festival in Los Angeles, California called “J-Rock Revolution”. They were part of the second night alongside Merry, D’espairsRay and MUCC. Around the time of J-Rock Revolution, some of the performing bands released material on the iTunes Music Store.

Their appearance has gradually changed, while girugamesh began in the visual kei scene now their style has changed to a more casual look.
