D†L (ディエル) was Toshiya's last band before joining Dir En Grey. It's unknown when they formed, but they disbanded on March 19, 1999. Toshiya was with them from around October 1996 to February 1997 and played support guitar. During Toshiya's tenure with the band and for the recording of their debut album, they used a drum machine at lives. According to Shuji, Daiki joined the band after they used a drumming machine. It's unknown when exactly this was the case. At some point, they also had a different drummer, Hiroshi.
