This Band Gives me so much ENERGY!!!! Do not miss this fantastic tune.

From: SIXXSWINE Date: April 18, 2001 at 14:29
What a band! This one is a must have, if you like Loudness you'll love these guys. Strong songs, great musicianship & great production ALL are key for a great disc! This has all three! 9.5 for sure.

From: ACEMAN Date: May 3, 2001 at 10:23
This album ROCKZ HARD! It is a shame that they broke up. I had the pleasure of seeing them live twice. From the first and the second tours they had. Really blew my mind how tight they were.

From: fredman Date: July 25, 2001 at 1:15
produced by gene simmons,it was a good idea,,,,? but i forgive you gene.

From: SHAG Date: October 31, 2001 at 8:59
There will never be another Loudness, no matter who tries, and this was a horrible effort!! A couple of the songs are ok, but the majority of this album was bad!! There's a reason why this band wasn't popular!!!

From: MGD4Ever Date: March 29, 2002 at 6:24
Oh come on now people. Just because they were from Japan doesn't mean that they have to sound like Loudness. frankly, I thought these guys had plenty of balls whereas Loudness sounded like a bunch of snivling wimps with a fast guitar player.

From: Uncle Grimwell Date: July 12, 2002 at 13:22
A rare gem that is hard to find for 80's metal. Dark, crisp songs. Well produced by Simmons, each musician can be heard in every song. Not muddled, messy, or poppy. It's hard, aggressive, and shows their talent. There is no comparison to Loudness. EZO was, quite simply, better. I still play this disc today.

From: LONGTIME Date: April 2, 2003 at 19:04

From: Rene Date: April 23, 2003 at 21:55
Not bad but i prefer other japanish metal bands like LOUDNESS, ANTHEM, BLIZARD, VOW WOW, EARTHSHAKER, METALUCIFER, SABBAT and many many more. DO SOMEBODY STILL REMEMBER PARTY NINJAS???

From: Rocker65 Date: May 7, 2003 at 17:45
Does anybody know what EZO stands for?

From: Hari Kari Date: June 11, 2003 at 2:19
saw this band live tour this album small club Houston was killer met dudes at tour bus hard-drinking bad ass metal songs STILL give me wood.

From: perfectstranger Date: June 16, 2003 at 7:55
produced by gene simmons of kiss this is better than any kiss record they made in the 80's by far!!great songs and HEAVEY! house of a 1000 pleasures is a classic lost metal tune. i think motley crue stole the intro riff from destroyer and made dr. feelgood!! cause this was out before the crue released feelgood..this disc is way overpriced on e-bay but you can find it pawnshops all the time for under $5.00. a must have for any true 80's metal head.

From: JUPPANESE Date: August 7, 2003 at 7:29
Hi Rocker65! EZO is the old name of HOKKAIDO which is the northernmost prefecture in Japan, and also their hometown!

From: Christine Date: October 24, 2003 at 4:47
Without a doubt, the best Japanese band! I have the original release on vinyl and a double CD '87 promo from Geffen with 1000 Pleasures, Desiree, Flashback and Here it Comes. Best song was Kiss of Fire - that riff just sticks with you.

From: Andreas The Kid Date: November 13, 2003 at 21:50
How much can the vinyl be worth,anyone?. Yeah, Destroyer could probably be stolen by Crüe, sounds like that

From: Surfdog Date: December 10, 2003 at 23:47
Heavy Harmonies is run by a bitter fat ugly person. BUT, it's a good website. EZO-if you likem good metal, then smokem the peace pipe and put on the cd of EZO. Me no speakee with no fork tongue.

From: metal87 Date: February 5, 2004 at 3:25
does anybody know who created the hand sculpture on the album cover art?

From: drummerfish Date: February 16, 2004 at 4:33
sad to say,i never found any ezo cd's.so i only heard and like the first 2 songs.i thought they were a american band when i first heard them on the now defunct l.a. radio station,knac.til i seen a picture.as for the guy asking about who created the artwork:don't know,but it looks like its very h.g.gieger influenced(the alien movie series)

From: El Chempion Date: April 11, 2004 at 23:25
All Your Base Are Belong To Us!!

From: figgy Date: May 2, 2004 at 8:06
I thought this was a pretty cool album. i have it on vinyl also.I don't think they were as good as loudness but definately worth listening to.If you enjoyed loudness or anthem you'll like these guys too.

From: jack Date: June 11, 2004 at 1:49
Japanese heavy metal band are the greatest!

The curse of Gene Simmons strikes! Actually no, EZO were one of the better hard rock bands out of Japan, along with Loudness and Bow Wow. Flashback Heart Attack indeed. 7/10

From: ALEXX GLAM Date: July 6, 2004 at 13:32

From: Franck Date: December 16, 2004 at 11:06
I finally got this one on Ebay. Well, not the music I expected ! Lot of Gene Simmons influence on this one, but listen before buying !

From: Metalhead66 Date: January 25, 2005 at 12:21
This one is good,but not as good as Fire Fire. The Front cover is actually The lead singers Hands Folded Together..sort of!! Gene's production is something to be Desired,but not as bad as some make it out to be!!7/10!!

From: pt88 Date: January 27, 2005 at 20:34
Unfortunately the people I knew made fun of Ezo. I honestly loved the music. O.K. they might have looked odd I didn't care. Back in the day my friends would mimic the Japanese accent like the interview on the Hard n Heavy video. They rocked and this one was better than their 2nd.

Great album, great band - looking at the band piccies, it looked like Gene Simmons was trying to make them into a sort of Japanese version of Kiss, with the image/Look. That being said, i loved the music, very powerful. Fire,Fire, is a better album on the whole i think, but this is definately worth digging out if you can find it (i think it is only avaliable as a Japanese issue now).

From: onemorecast Date: March 3, 2005 at 23:21
better than loudness for sure, but still not very good. Flashback heartattack, and Kiss of fire were really the only decent tracks.

From: tokio blade Date: March 5, 2005 at 10:23
una mierda de disco 00,apesta

From: JonVendetta Date: May 3, 2005 at 12:13
Gene's production sucks (listen to the ridiculous plast-o-rama drums... something that makes me stop missing the 80's!). Apart from that, average band. Please STOP compare ANY japanese band with Loudness. This only shows how narrow minded you are. Do you compare any US combo with Bon Jovi, by the way? I don't think...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 20, 2011 at 17:04
Very interesting band that came out from the land of the rising sun ...yes,the most "relevant" issue about this album is that it was produced by the "reality show man" Gene Simmons(of Kiss fame)...the band had a powerful live image and the songs were strictly american rock influenced(Glam/Hard Rock bands specifically)...best shot and my all time personal fave is "Here It Comes"(even though the japanese version of this song is even better.it kicks a**)then another goodies are "House Of 1,000 Pleasures","Destroyer","Big Changes"(great!) & "Kiss Of Fire"(great!)...recommended...85/100
