Loudness

Soldier of Fortune

One of my top ten favorite albums. This was Loudness' first release with an American frontman. I had always been impressed with Akira Takasaki, but never really got into the band because I couldn't get past the strong accent of the singer. Enter Michael Vescera. He was just what this band needed. With Mike's voice, this band suddenly became a force to reckon with. Every song on this cd is great. This was Loudness' best album, and a must have for any metal collection.
