Dixanadu is an album released by Moi dix Mois on March 28, 2007. It contains re-recordings of "Tentation" ("Last Temptation") and "Pessimiste" ("Neo Pessimist"), originally from the album Dix Infernal.


The album features Gothic metal combined with traditional Japanese elements of song. The guitar riffs have been compared to those of Slayer. Another element are twin guitars with a tone shift of a fourth.[1]


The German Sonic Seducer magazine called the album a milestone of J-Rock and the dark culture in general. The reviewer noted also that the melody lines were more international than on the band's previous releases which would suit the European audience.[1]
