Heavy Metal
Middleton, Ohio, USA

Their name has stood for “Love Over Universal Destruction” and “Love Obedience Unity Devotion” at different times.

Two of the members, Pat & Frank Bratcher, toured in another group in the 80's before L.O.U.D. called High Fever. They opened for Kiss, Scorpions, Quiet Riot, Vandenburg, Fastway, and other bands.

L.O.U.D. was formed 1985 in McAlester, Oklahoma by Pat & Frank. They moved to Tulsa and eventually based out of Middletown, Ohio. Their mission statement was: “We want to reach souls”.

L.O.U.D. opened for Head East, Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad, Sweet Savage, and more. They were in the process of starting a tour called “Shout It Out L.O.U.D.” as a tribute to KISS (a KISS clone act) when both Pat and Frank went back to church and stopped the project, which would have grossed approximately $360,000 dollars a year.
