    "Dir En Grey" can be transcribed into katakana as ディル・アン・グレイ (Diru an Gurei).

    To confirm this, if you search for ディル・アン・グレイ you'll find countless Dir en Grey-related sites:

    There's no official kanji applied to the name.

    You may want to note, however, even we Japanese prefer to write it in alphabet, rather than in katakana. This is true for other bands who have their names in alphabet as well, such as "L'Arc~en~Ciel" or "X JAPAN". Hardly anybody would write those names in katakana, save when giving the pronunciation.
