Loudness (ラウドネス Raudonesu) is a Japanese heavy metal band formed in 1981 by guitarist Akira Takasaki and drummer Munetaka Higuchi. They were the first Japanese metal act signed to a major label in the United States, releasing twenty-six studio albums (five in America) and nine live albums by 2014 and reaching the Billboard Top 100 in their moment of maximum international popularity, as well as charting on Oricon dozens of times.
Guitarist Akira Takasaki and drummer Munetaka Higuchi first played together during the mid-'70s in a mainstream rock band called Lazy. Unhappy with the band's direction, the duo split and decided to follow in the footsteps of Bow Wow (the first ever Japanese heavy metal band), forming Loudness with vocalist Minoru Niihara and bass player Masayoshi Yamashita. Combining a classic metal approach with Takasaki's Eddie Van Halen-inspired guitar heroics, the band immediately scored local success with their first three albums, which were sung entirely in Japanese. But it wasn't until the release of their first live album, Live-Loud-Alive, and fourth studio effort Disillusion that the group attracted any significant attention outside their homeland, eventually issuing an English version of Disillusion.
Atlantic Records soon came calling and the band's international career began in earnest with 1985's Thunder in the East, which sold quite well in the U.S. for its novelty value, giving the band false hopes about their acceptance by Western metal audiences. Subsequent efforts, Lightning Strikes and Hurricane Eyes, were "made to order" records geared for the American market, and saw the band slowly drifting away from their roots towards a more commercial, pop-metal sound. All to no avail, and after recording 1988's independently-released Jealousy, the classic lineup's glory years came to an end with the firing of Niihara and the arrival of American-born singer Mike Vescera for 1989's Soldier of Fortune. 1991's disappointing On the Prowl saw them resort to re-recording watered down versions of some of their Japan-only material and would be the last to feature Vescera, who briefly joined the temperamental Yngwie J. Malmsteen's band.
In 2000, Takasaki began toying with the idea of a Loudness reformation, featuring the group's original members, and the news was formally announced in May, the band going into preproduction soon afterwards. "Spiritual Canoe", an album cut by the original line-up, hit the stores in March 2001. As the band embarked on a domestic tour, fans were more than eager to see the four musicians perform together again. Proof of their success was captured on tape and released on DVD, entitled "The Soldiers Just Came Back 2001"
Till today, the band has released 26 studio albums, 3 EP’s, 8 Live albums, 15 singles & 16 Compilation albums thus making them It consists of 26 studio albums, 3 EP's, 8 Live albums, 15 singles & 16 Compilation albums thus making them one of the world’s most prolific heavy metal bands. Their latest album, The Sun Will Rise Again was a major hit and they have an album planned for 2018.
LOUDNESS currently consists of Akira Takasaki on guitar, Masayoshu Yamashita on bass, Minoru Nihara on lead vocals & Masayuki on drums.
