Earthshaker biography

Earthshaker were one of a handful of Japanese hard/melodic rock band formed in 1978 in Tokyo. Their earlier music was also influenced by heavy metal, 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. The band was named after the Y&T (Yesterday and Today) album. An early incarnation of the band included Minoru Niihara (of Loudness fame) as singer (originally bass and vocals). Members: Masafumi Nishida (vocals) Shinichiro Ishihara (guitar) Takayuki Kai (bass guitar) Yoshihiro Kudo (drums) Discography: Studio Albums * 1983 - Blondie Girl EP * 1983 - Earthshaker * 1984 - Exciting Mini EP * 1984 - Fugitive * 1985 - Midnight Flight * 1985 - Passion * 1986 - Overrun * 1987 - Shaker's Shakies * 1987 - Aftershock * 1988 - Smath * 1989 - Hunting time * 1990 - Treachery * 1991 - Pretty Good! * 1992 - Earthshaker EP * 1993 - Real * 1993 - Yesterday & Tomorrow * 2001 - Birthday * 2003 - Soko-Ni Aru Shi * 2004 - Faith * 2007 - AIM * 2008 - Quarter * 2009 - The Course of Life * 2011 - Pray For the Earth Live Albums * 1986 - Live In Budokan * 1989 - Earthshaker Live Encore! * 1994 - More - Earthshaker In Vancouver * 1994 - Remains Compilations * 1987 - The Best of Earthshaker * 1988 - The Ballads of Earthshaker * 1995 - The Very Best of Earthshaker * 2002 - Golden Best * 2002 - The Best of Nexus Years * 2005 - 1987-1992 The Best Video/DVD * 1984 - Midnight Flight * 1985 - Passion the Movie * 1987 - After Shock * 1990 - So Good
