Musical style

The Gazette's musical style varies greatly, but it is generally considered to be a form of rock music while delving into the genres of heavy metal found in songs like "Ogre." They have dabbled in alternative metal with the likes of "Taion", "Carry" and "The Invisible Wall" and they have also dabbled in nu metal with the likes of "Burial Applicant", "The Suicide Circus" and "Agony". Other songs like "Silly God Disco" and "Swallowtail on the Death Valley" feature a funk metal sound with the use of jazzy chords and upbeat choruses. Other works such as "Leech" and "Hyena" feature a hard rock sound, "Ito" and "Dim Scene" feature a progressive rock sound, "Cockroach" and "Anti-pop" feature a punk rock sound, "Shiikureta Haru, Kawarenu Haru" and "Wakaremichi" feature a glam rock sound and "Zakurogata no Yūutsu" and "Best Friends" feature a pop rock sound. "Filth in the Beauty" features female R&B vocals and bass, Spanish guitar with techno beat, crunchy metal riffs, harmonized choruses and a headbanging riff right in the middle - all within the same song. The songs "Maggots", "Discharge", "Headache Man" and "Maximum Impulse" dwell into heavier forms of music, in particular, metalcore and crossover thrash. The band also uses experimental metal sounds in songs like "666", "The Social Riot Machines" and "Mad Marble Hell Vision".
