Perhaps I am just one who prefers the more traditional verse, chorus, verse, chorus, song writing style, but with "Breaking the Taboo", even after several listens I couldn't find anything to sing along to, save for perhaps "Damnation" and the catchy chorus; "Come on, come on.
Another problem might be that Minoru is no longer singing but seems to be screaming as if competing with the volume of the rest of the instruments. Perhaps he's trying to get an edgier, angrier sound, but I just prefer the more melodic stuff and the layered vocals of old.
Some of that can indeed be heard in "Damnation". However, even in this song it seems like Minoru is screaming through a mega-phone trying to be heard. On the more melodic "Love of My Life", Minuro sings and sounds great. We all know he has the pipes and can sing as well as he can scream.
I suppose I'd just like to hear him sing more and scream a little less. The packaging is extremely nice. The cover has some sort of metallic ink or something. Contained in the jewel case was also a stick of the cover art and an additional booklet with all the lyrics. Loudness - Eve to Dawn Frostbite 1. A Light In The Dark [ instrumental ] 2.

Hang Tough 8. Comes The Dawn Pandra Loudness have to be one of the most productive bands on the planet as by my count, "Eve to Dawn" marks their 25th album. With it, the band seems to be returning to a more traditional heavy metal sound, while still mixing in some of the more modern sound that the band has been meandering in for well over a decade. After a short instrumental introduction, "The Power of Truth" is unleashed and can only be described as a full-throttle thrash metal attack.
The song is downright vicious but offers plenty of variety, from spastic double bass and machine gun riffing to a Maiden -esque bridge leading up to a jaw-dropping guitar solo.
Akira Takasaki has lost nothing with age! Vocalist Minoru Niihara switches back and forth from singing to high-pitched screaming. His voice has always been one of the signatures of the Loudness sound. The opening seconds of the song have a 70's Van Halen quality. This song is slightly more melodic than the opening numbers, and actually sounds a bit like the classic Loudness that most fans know and love. This song is an instrumental that allows Akira a chance to show his stuff, if the first seven tracks didn't already afford him that opportunity.
Regardless, the six minute instrumental is definitely one of the standout cuts on the album. The album ends with two of the shortest cuts, "Pandora" and "Crazy! The last song in particular is a funk-based, alternative-metal song that just sticks out like a sore thumb.
More than 30 years into their career, these Japanese metal vets are still delivering the goods. Though they have moved beyond their sound, with "Eve to Dawn" they've managed to bring back some of that sound without sounding like they are trying to just re-create the past. Frankly, I think "Eve to Dawn" is one of their more enjoyable albums since their classic 80's catalog.
The cover art is the lousiest thing about this album. Also check out:. Back to Index. Akira Takasaki Minoru Niihara. It marked the end of an era for Loundess. After this album, Loudness would go from being one of Japan's best kept secrets to being known world wide.
Before this album, Loudness were pure heavy metal without an hint of pop or glam. This recording includes everything a live album should have, including drum and guitar solos, audience participation and pure, raw, aggressive sound. Early Loudness was so very unique. While the band had some obvious influences like Judas Priest, they still had a very unique sound and were untainted by American record company producers.
While the three studio albums that preceeded this live album were good, the energy captured on this live album just blows those studio recordings out of the water. The 2-CD set is housed in a gatefold mini-album sleeve. This is not cheap packaging. Not only is the album on very sturdy cardboard, but each CD is in it's own individual slip case.
Also come with insert and the coveted Japanese OBI strip. For the most part, even Akira's finger flying leads are kept at bay. Akria does let loose with some bluesy guitar licks in the lengthy "Love and Hate".
There are a few standout cuts here, including the title cut, the bluesy "Love and Hate" and the funk infused "Hypnotized". Personally I feel that "Dragon" is a far better release than "Ghetto Machine", even if does have a similar modern, experimental vibe.
For a full review of "Dragon", see below. This 2-CD release features a page booklet with lyrics and liner notes. Loudness - Biosphere Tokuma 1. Hellrider 2. Biosphere 3. Savior 4. There is a video clip of the song You Shook Me, where the band can be affected by playing at the foot of the famous Hollywood peak, which falls apart specifically before the same sound force.
