An SE ("sound effect") is a short instrumental track that is usually played as an intro before the start of a concert. Dir En Grey have made use of SEs since the very beginning of their career. They can be found on almost all setlists and change from time to time. Sometimes, officially released songs are used as SEs, such as G.D.S. However, the SEs have no known titles most of the time. A list can be found below.
