This Japanese hard rock and roll quintet was formed in 1978. Motivated by fellow countrymen Bow Wow, Yukihiro ‘Ace’ Nakaya (vocals) and Shigeo ‘Rolla’ Nakano (electric guitar) made a decision to come up with a music group along very similar lines. Recruiting Bunzo ‘Bunchan’ Satoh (electric guitar), Masaaki ‘Cherry’ Chikura (bass) and Tadashi ‘Popeye’ Hirota (drums), these were found by the neighborhood Text message label. The resultant IN THE Black World mixed Truck Halen, Deep Crimson and UFO affects. It was an extraordinary debut, relatively marred by a substandard production. Nevertheless, the band continued to be virtually unidentified outside their very own country as well as the record was their solitary contribution to Japanese steel.
