Earthshaker Band

Earthshaker (, a-susheik?) is a Japanese heavy metal[1] band that was formed in 1978 in Osaka. Their earlier music was very similar in style to countrymen Loudness and Anthem, but the band steered toward a poppier sound[] on later albums and dropped from worldwide view, preferring to record and tour in their home country. After a successful run, they broke up in 1994, but returned five years later and are still going strong today.

Remarkably, the original quartet from the first album are still together. An early incarnation of the band included Minoru Niihara (of Loudness fame) as singer (originally bass and vocals).
