Thread: Maximum The Hormone

    Default Maximum The Hormone



    In my opinion, one of the best avant-garde bands around. MTH integrate many styles into their music; heavy rhythms, screaming vocals, rap, alternative rock and clean vocals. They are an excellent example of avant-garde music imo.

    History

    Maximum the Hormone was created in 1998 by Daisuke Tsuda and Nao Kawakita, along with former members Sugi and Key. After a couple regional shows, the band signed a contract with the Japanese rock label Sky Records. A.S.A. Crew was the first album released under that label and was the only full length album released with this lineup. At that time Daisuke wrote his songs only in English, and 'Maximum the Hormone' was also written in Latin letters.

    While looking for new members to join the band, Nao thought of her younger brother Ryo, who had been playing the guitar since his years in junior high school and could sing very well, too. From then on, the two men split up most of the vocals, Daisuke taking care of the screaming and rap vocals and Ryo the more melodic parts. Ue joined as well, completing the quartet as the bassist. After that major change the band decided to root their lyrics and band name in katakana to reflect the change in the band members. In 2001, the band released an EP, Hō.

    ^ I'd say they were avant-garde because they mix alot of styles. They aren't pure metal, they're just influenced by it.

    imo,mix a lot style doesnt make a band an avantgarde hhe.
    they are just combining heavy metal+jrock (count it as a rock) +rap = Nu-Metal,i think nothing more.
