Beyonds are a legendary Japanese emo/post punk band that initially formed in 1991. Their earlier material followed a more
intense, hardcore-based style, although they adopted a much more emo-esqued style a few years later. Although they split up
in 1994 and only released a handful of material, they were considered to be pioneers in the Japanese emo scene. They reformed
in 2005, and have been touring and releasing material regularly.
