"Maximum the Hormone" is a metal rock band formed in Hachioji, Tokyo in 1998. With a style that incorporates a wide range of songs from intense rock taste songs to songs with catchy melodies, it is popular with a wide range of age groups.
What is Maximum the Hormone?
Maximum the Hormone is a metal band formed in Hachioji, Tokyo in 1998. When the group first formed, most of the songs had English lyrics, but after the member change, there were many songs with Japanese lyrics, and the melody changed significantly. At large-scale rock festivals, you can enjoy fun live performances where the audience and members rampage with intense live performances.
Origin of the band name
The origin of the band name comes from the desire to play cool music that maximizes the secretion of substances in the brain, but this origin seems to have been added later. All the members were meat lovers, so they added the word horumon and the cool word maximum, which is the origin of the band name. Maximum The Hormone's band name was written in English as Maximum The Hormone when they first formed. However, it was changed to katakana notation after the member change.
Maximum The Hormone Member Profile
When Maximum the Hormone was formed, it consisted of drummer Nao, vocalist Daisuke Han, guitarist SUGI and bassist KEY. However, SUGI and KEY left the group, and MAXIMUM THE RYO-kun and Ue-chan joined, making up the current lineup. Here are the member profiles of Maximum The Hormone.

What is Maximum the Hormone's second store (Coronanamoremomo)?
Coronanamoremomo is a band that stands as the second branch of Maximum The Hormone, and is like an official copy band of Maximum The Hormone. Maximum the Hormone started a franchise system in 2019, and the members who won the audition are working as members of Coronanamoremomo. Coronanamoremomo is characterized by not playing songs other than Maximum the Hormone, and not performing live in Ibaraki prefecture, which is the base of Maximum the Hormone.
Origin of the band name
The unusual band name Coronanamoremomo was named by the owner Sasashima Sasa (Maximum the Ryo-kun). The band name was decided because the word "kotteri" that Maximum the Hormone often uses becomes COTTELEE when written in English, and this word looks like coronanamoremomo in katakana. The reason why I didn't make it sound like Maximum the Hormone is because I wanted people who don't know about Maximum the Hormone to listen to Coronanamoremomo and think that this band is cool.
