These guys are pretty cool - they've been around for over 20 years, this is from an album that came out in 2000 (with Graham Bonnett on vocals). This vid is post-Bonnett.

From Japan - Anthem!



Hell, while we're talking Japanese Metal bands - the biggest of them all...

LOUDNESS!!!

No, not quite.

Feel free to post a video link for a great, almost forgotten Hard Rock or Metal band and participate, though.

Rhett Forrester was shot and killed by a carjacker in Atlanta in 2004 (the crime is, unfortunately, still unsolved), and Guy Speranza died from cancer in 2003.

Nope. And I've got to imagine that if they had a better singer that they just might have been a little more successful. Budgie was pretty ahead of their time musically.
