Since its inception in 1981, Loudness have led the Japanese heavy metal scene and embarked on global domination with “THUNDER IN THE EAST” (1985 / #74 US national chart) and “LIGHTNING STRIKES” (1986 / #64 US national chart).  They have been frantically acclaimed worldwide.

Now, “RISE TO GLORY”, the first album in 4 years since “THE SUN WILL RISE AGAIN” (2014), is going to be released on 26th January 2018 worldwide and for the first time on earMUSIC (world ex. Japan). The album is packed with aggression, melody and positive vibes.
