Biography

There are several bands named Vera Cruz

1. Germans VERA CRUZ debuted in 1989 with “Hot Games” released through a small indie label, pressed on CD but in limited quantities. Much sought after by collectors, original copies were sold at eBay for $400!

Despite of being released in ‘89, the style in “Hot Games” is mid-eighties Melodic Rock / AOR with the typical German + Scandinavian sound; lots of keyboards & synths, melodic guitars and hooky choruses.
Actually, Vera Cruz sounds here quite Swedish, like early Skagarak (not so tight), early Treat, Quolio, Maeday and alikes.

All tracks are catchy with good musicianship, and although production isn’t stellar, if you dig ’80s Scandi-AOR you’ll love it.

Vera Cruz reformed around 2001 only with original member Tobi Janouschek, featuring new female vocalist Kirsten Janschke.
