WANTED: Loudness – Metal Mad (2008)


Loudness – Metal Mad (2008)

I’ve always had a soft spot for Japan’s Loudness ever since they released THUNDER IN THE EAST in 1985. Back then I was still learning a lot about Metal and a band from Japan just sounded so exotic, I acquired both THUNDER IN THE EAST and the follow-up LIGHTNING STRIKES (1986) on cassette and I became a Loudness fan.

Fast forward to February of this year and the announcement of Loudness’ new album, METAL MAD. The album was released in Japan on February 20 and it’s a relatively easy album to find through various Japanese import stores and Amazon but the price ranges from $25 to $35 USD depending on the exchange rate and the store. That’s not including shipping & handling! I was hoping the band would secure a U.S. distribution deal for METAL MAD but it hasn’t happened yet. I can’t really afford the CD at those prices and then add shipping so, even though I want it, I will have to wait! I’ll bet it’s a solid album…..for now I’ll have to enjoy what the band has posted at the Loudness MySpace page.

  2. New Loudness album coming out in end of May… this is without their former drummer (Mr. Higuchi Munetaka). According to Mr. Akira Takasaki (Guitarist/Leader) this album is going to be a surprising album…
