Prounouncing visual kei band names in Japanese

ディルアングレイ - Dir en grey : Diru an gurei : Deeru an guu-ray-ee (When said correctly in Japanese it pretty much just sounds like you're stretching out the English pronunciation of Dir en grey. Note: if in English you pronounce DER en grey, that is wrong, it is pronounced closed to DEER en grey, which is how "Diru" in Japanese is just sounding like a…
