EARLY CROSS EARLY CROSS Chiba, Tokyo Mel – Lead Vocals Hiroaki Kato – Guitars, Keyboards, Backing Vocals Shigetsugu Hagiya – Guitars Yugo Maeda – Bass Kazuhiro Kaneko – Drums & Cymbals Yuki Puzzy – Keyboards, Backing Vocals Artwork Takashi Miyamoto (2010-present) EARLY CROSS are a Japan-based band whose musical style embodies what has been called “Landscape Rock“. Their musical originality has its base in rock music, but is also influenced by various styles of music from heavy metal, progressive rock, gothic rock, and European folk music to world music. They have succeeded in creating a kind of music that would make you “see landscapes” by its inorganic-organic contrast and emotion-eliciting profound melodies interwoven throughout their songs. In their music, sometimes they restrain rising emotions with a cool hand, and sometimes they let them burst forth. Their fans appraise their sound as “wondrous and magical as if All About Eve has acquired the power of the earth” and call their music “landscape rock” for their original and distinctive musical perspective.
