March 29, 2019
Japanese metallers LOUDNESS will release a new 2CD+DVD, "Live In Tokyo", on May 17 via earMUSIC.
A performance video for the song "Soul On Fire", taken from "Live In Tokyo", can be seen below.
LOUDNESS has dominated the worldwide heavy metal scene ever since its birth in 1981 with classic albums like "Thunder In The East" (1985) and "Lightning Strikes" (1986). Their latest studio album, 2018's "Rise To Glory" was released worldwide through earMUSIC and was highly acclaimed both by the heavy metal maniacs and the critics.
In September of 2018, an event called "Metal Weekend" was held at the famous Zepp DiverCity Tokyo. LOUDNESS headlined the event for four nights in a row alongside guest bands such as RIOT V and ANTHEM, making every evening a huge success.
The documentation of these glorious nights will be released as physical and digital version via earMUSIC.
The set on CD 1 is based on the setlist from LOUDNESS's legendary North American tour from 1985, while CD 2's songs mainly base on songs from LOUDNESS's third album, "The Law Of Devil's Land", and fourth album, "Disillusion". The DVD includes many songs from their latest album, "Rise To Glory" along with all smash hit classics like "Crazy Doctor", "In The Mirror" and "Crazy Nights".
