    RIP Loudness drummer Minutaka Higuchi after a brief battle with liver cancer on Nov.30, 2008. As a longtome fan, I still say he was one of the most underrated drummers in Metal. Very bummed to hear of his passing.... :(

    Loudness is a band that isn't very well-known, but was very influential. Odds are you listen to some bands who are big fans of their stuff.

    Sad news.

    As we Finns often say:

    Lyhyestä virsi kaunis.

    Therefore: RIP

    (I haven't heard or even heard about Loudness but it's sad to hear the news.)

    This was a top 5 drummer for me. He was how I measured other metal drummers. RIP Munetaka.

    For those who haven't heard of Loudness, they have one of the greatest guitarists on the planet. :worship:

    That's really sad to hear. I hadn't heard of them, but may he rest in peace.
