No, GERARD is not only a French-flavoured first name ! It's also the name chosen by the Japanese keyboards wizard Toshio EGAWA (NOVELA, SHEHERAZADE, EARTHSHAKER?), at the time he created his own band at the beginning of the Eighties. The beginnings of the band were marked by an elegant and elaborated symphonic music relying on the Progressive rock played by YES, GENESIS and friends during the previous decade. Issued in 1983, the eponymous album was the leader of the remarkable Japanese Progressive rock movement, that was about to start. GERARD?s fame got bigger with ''Empty Lie, Empty Dream'' in 1987, and stronger with ''Irony Of Fate'' four years later. The omnipresent impressive and skilful keyboards have become a specific characteristic of their music since the co-founder Yukihiro FUJIMURA (Future author of the fabulous aggressive guitar parts in VIENNA) left the band. ''Save Knight By The Night'' was initially issued in 1994 under the pseudonym Toshio EGAWA?S GERARD. This was the occasion to discover a completely different group, largely influenced by EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER and UK, giving an explicit meaning to the term ''power-trio'' ! The prevailing bass with guitar accents of Atsushi HASEGAWA and some amazing drum parts courtesy of Masahiro GOTO contribute to give that unique music an impact usually found in the best hard-rock bands ! The instrumental band features from time to time Canadian singer Robin SUCHY. ''The Pendulum'' was issued in 1996, and ''Pandora?s Box'' the following year. ''Meridian'' (Mostly tracks from the first period revisited in 1998), ''Live In Marseille - Battle Triangle'' (GERARD was invited to perform in France during the Year of Japan in July 1998), ''The Ruins Of A Glass Fortress'' (2000) and ''Sighs Of The Water'' (2002) will follow. Entitled ''Power Of Infinity'', the 2005 release features Italian singer Alex BRUNORI, former member of the Progressive rock band LEVIATHAN. We are also offered the chance to rediscover in video a show simply out-of-this-world, and explicitly called ''Chaos Live''. Here's an essential band, for every Progressive rock lover...
