Not posted here for a long while but today please let me recommend a Japanese promising combo The BROWN.
Quote A Japanese rock combo The BROWN were founded in September, 2003. Through changing their formation a couple of times, a guitarist Katsuhiro ATARI (Atari.K) has given them heavy guitar buzz since 2006 and a bassist Yasu TAKANORI (Takanori.Y) deep rhythmic waves since 2007. Their first album "Struggle In A Whirl" was released in August 2007. Lots of gigs have been done mainly around Osaka ... and to be continued.

And my blog Tongue

Felt they can be fit for Heavy but a bit so pop and catchy enough for Crossover too.

Andy? Davidyam? LOL

From these samples, and the three on myspace, I think I'd be tempted to go with Crossover rather than Heavy...but it's a close call, and Andy may have other ideas. Embarrassed

Exactly, and their newest EP "MelloW" (I have this one) sounds heavier than previously ... upon the boundary between Hev and XO, my tuppence. Smile

there's a indi-rock alternative sound to those samples, didn't not hear the new ep.

^ Yeah, I heard this too, which is why I would tend to go with Crossover rather than Heavy Prog. Maybe Keishiro can provide you with something to listen to from 'MelloW'?
 
All I found was a video promoting the tour to support the new EP:

They are very much in the school in TMV. While they could fit in crossover, they could just as easily fit in Heavy. One more vote and they're in.
