History

Marino was a Japanese heavy metal band that true to its compatriots released several albums in short order and duly disappeared. The group hailed from Osaka and was in 1978 founded by Yoshida, but several members collaborated with Nagoya’s Sniper. The band and Earthshaker and 44 Magnum were Osaka area’s three main hard rock acts. The band was heard on the Battle Of Metal compilation in 1984. The band returned in 2003 with Raven back on guitar. The band’s debut demo, 1979’s Revel Night, featured guitarist Kuniji Yoshinaga. In 2003, SMS issued a video of the band called Live Target. The band was heard on the 2003 compilation Hard Rock Summit, which was also a Japanese festival. The band was then heard on the split Japan Heavy Metal Fantasy with Earthshaker and 44 Magnum in 2008. This was a live release. The band reunited in 2014 to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of their split with Hurry Scuary and others, namely Battle Of Metal.

The band was named as homage to guitarist Frank Marino.
