Getting Into: Maximum The Hormone

The articles in this series begun by our own Baz Anderson are designed to give a brief overview of a band's entire discography, so as to provide a clear point of entry for the uninitiated. It offers a different approach from the typical review format, for the curious newcomer to a well-traveled band.

Maximum The Hormone
Hardcore, alternative metal, nu metal, J-rock, punk
Japan

Maximum The Hormone is a band of contrasts: jovial pop-punk choruses and screeching, metallic verses; groovy, percussive beatdowns and free-spirited rock'n'roll sing-alongs; crude, colorful humor and periodic forays into a dark, desperate undercurrent. With a versatile, three-pronged vocal apparatus, an electrifying and outspoken rhythm section, and the songwriting expertise and attention to detail necessary to utilize the band's prodigious talents, Maximum The Hormone has evolved over the years so as to be unrecognizable from its original incarnation. Founded in 1998 by drummer Nao Kawakita and vocalist Daisuke Tsuda, Maximum The Hormone originated as a merely a quirky hardcore punk band; it is in this guise that the band, rounded out by bassist Key and guitarist Sugi, released its debut, A.S.A. Crew. Shortly afterwards, the latter two members departed, to be replaced by bassist Futoshi Uehara and guitarist/clean vocalist Ryo Kawakita, Nao's younger brother. Under Ryo's aegis, the band evolved into an unpredictable behemoth characterized by chameleonic style shifts and uncommonly memorable songwriting. It would be safe to say that Maximum The Hormone is primarily known in the West for providing the opening and ending themes for the 2006 anime Death Note, namely "What's Up, People?!" and "Zetsubou Billy," both featured on the band's 2007 album Buiikikaesu, but there is a lot more to the band's career and signature style.
