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.
