History

The oft-criticized singer Tatsuya Umehara formed 44 Magnum circa 1978, but it took the Japanese heavy metal band until 1983 to record and issue a full-length album, which also managed to feature the weapon on its cover. A little-known self-titled 1983 demo lead to the band’s contract with Japan’s own Moon Records and a series of albums. The group lost some of its edge as the '80s progressed. The group took the '90s off returning with the Ignition album, a compilation, a DVD and even a tribute album full of 44 Magnum covers. 2009’s 44 Magnum bore the same title as a 1983 EP. Live At Alive was a 2010 video. Umehara ceased live work due to Parkinson’s in 2012. He would still contribute songs. His son Stevie Umehara joined. 2016 04 03 04 Special Live was recorded in Tokyo in 2016.
