LOUDNESS picture
Japanese heavy metal band. CURRENT (and 'classic') LINE-UP: Minoru Niihara (v), Akira Takasaki (g), Munetaka Higuchi(d), Masayoshi Yamashita (b).

Back in the '70's, drummer MUNETAKA HIGUCHI and guitarist AKIRA TAKASAKI played together in a pop-rock band called Lazy. In an effort to pursue their musical aspiration even farther, they split from the successful group and launched LOUDNESS in May 1981. The duo was joined by former EARTHSHAKER vocalist MINORU NIIHARA, who was devoted to soul music at the time, and Takasaki's childhood friend MASAYOSHI YAMASHITA as the bassist.

The band went into the studio in August and three months later, the band's debut album, "THE BIRTHDAY EVE", hit the stores. It was as if the relentlessly wild arming by Takasaki in the intro of the opening track was an omen of things to come, as this album ended up making a historical impact on the Japanese rock scene.

LOUDNESS Eve To Dawn

Album · 2011 · Traditional heavy metal

With twenty-five albums under their sleeve definitely made Loudness the most productive Japanese heavy metal band ever, and 'Eve To Dawn' represents the 2011 version of Loudness, where even though they're still sound very modern, I sense a hint of coming back to the traditional heavy metal style. It's a good sign, but still not enough to drag my interest back like when Vescera is still on board. I long for a melodic-but-heavy record, commercial-but-subtle release, and 'Eve To Dawn' has couple of great tracks to please my appetite, but shame that's just about all.

'Come Alive Again' is a pure heavy metal beast, the riffs are fantastic and Takasaki is awesome as usual. 'Survivor' is more furious, leaping to the power metal territory, somehow reminds me of X Japan, another good track, and 'Keep You Burning' is also nice. The chaotic intro which turns quickly into a superb track, topped with Takasaki's firey solos. If I have the option to grab only these three tracks and created an EP, I'll gladly do it as the rest are disposable.

'The Power of Truth' is too modern even though the chorus is melodic and 'Gonna Do It My Way' is averagely okay, but 'Hang Tough' and 'Emotions' are weak, and came 'Pandora', the worst of the bunch, it ripped off any good mood I have on the first half. Stripping down the modern element and throwing back to their real heavy metal roots is actually the best path for them but I don't understand what they are trying to achieve with this. Idealism is good but this is clearly not the fans wanted, and if you want express the freedom of creativity, solo albums could be better.

I just hope that Loudness will veer back to its glorious days in the next effort, otherwise, it might be wise to call it a day.

LOUDNESS Soldier of Fortune

Released in 1989, "Soldier of Fortune" was the first album with Michael Vescera after Minoru Niihara got kicked out of the band. This was done to help them breaking through the American market although the final result wasn't exactly as what they expected. The whole album sounded very American and has a lot of 80s glam metal influences inside.

"You Shook Me" stomp the ground with Takasaki's thunderous riffs topped with Vescera's raspy screamer. "Danger of Love" is another winner and sounded like an unreleased Dokken song. "Red Light Shooter" fired away some ferocious hooks with flashy tapping. Too bad the euphoria was soon over when they struck me with the blunt boring ballad "Lost Without Your Love". If you're looking for a downtempo sentimental track, "Twenty Five Days" is a far better pick, check out the unforgettable intro lines. Good thing is that they repumped the album with several heavy tracks and closed it with the fantastic "Demon Disease".

"Soldier of Fortune" is truly a great album with lots of powerful songs, stellar vocal, and exceptional guitar works. Although this ain't the same Loudness as in the early 80s, Akira still deserved a glass of beer for the magical and mind-blowing composition!
