  • 80's japan metal band - Loudness

    Have you heard of these guys? I saw them on VH1 most awesomely bad metal songs. the guitar player, akira takasaki, is quite good. he plays guitar van halen style. better than many 80's wankers i'd say. anybody know 'bout this band?

    Yeah, I remember Loudness...barely. Gosh, that was TWENTY years ago, and I had some bad habits back then. I can see in my mind either their logo or the album cover, can't remember which, but I don't remember any particular songs. I do remember that me and my friends thought that Takasaki shredded righteously and that their singer wasn't all that good. Hopefully, I'll come across an old tape of them sometime when I clean the basement.

          yeah Loudness rocks!!

          they're actually still around... the original band got together again a few yrs back i think.... but i still like their 80s stuff better... their new sound is more nu-metal + guitar solos...

                  Takasaki was definately a bad ass. I really liked his rhythm work.
                  The vocals were always very difficult to get accustomed to.
                  I have the Lightning Strikes record. It's okay but not as good as Thunder In the East.

                    I still have a live video of them for a concert in Japan.

                    Bad 80's Metal but the guitar player was the encyclopedia britanica of every 80's heavy rock guitar technique in the book.

                      "Roudness"

                      I had Thunder in the East. Not exactly the pinnacle of lyrical works, a touch "engrish" actually. But yeah, Takamawhatever wasn't no slouch on the geetar.

                        Their 'Law of Devil's Land' LP still RAAAAWKS! That was their 3rd album (in Japanese). Also, Akira Takasaki's 'Tusk of Jaguar' album is a mandatory purchase for fans of metal from the land of the rising sun. This album shows shows his range is much greater than the Loudness stuff.

                              Oooh! I remember them, they would show one of their videos on Headbangers Ball back in the late '80s. "Flashback, Heartattack"!
