UnsraW were a metal band formed in 2006 by 勇企 (Yuuki) and 匠 (Shou). They were soon joined by 准 (Jun), 哲 (Tetsu), and 礼 (Rai, formerly 刹戯 of ＪＯＫＥＲ). Their first seven lives were all secret shows with their first live being on July 6 at Takadanobaba AREA. On August 23, UnsraW held their first one-man, titled Gate of Death, which was a free live to commemorate their formation. Shortly after on August 30, they released their first maxi-single, -9-, limited to 1,000 copies, which sold out in less than a couple weeks.
