グレヱテル (Gretel) is a band that got their start about a year and a half ago, with their first demo released for free in June of 2012, and their first live on July 17th, 2012.
Later that year, they released another single, “シオン” (Shion), for free at their sponsored event at Shibuya-REX. What was originally a four member band was cut down to three, when their drummer, Masu, left at the end of the year.
The current members of the band are Itsuki, sinku, and chizuru.
