Tokyo Blade is a British heavy metal band that formed in 1982. The band has gone through several lineup changes over the years, but their signature sound has remained consistent throughout their discography. Tokyo Blade has been recognized as one of the pioneers of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) movement, alongside other notable bands like Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, and Saxon.
Tokyo Blade's self-titled debut album was released in 1983 and received critical acclaim. The album was a commercial success and helped establish Tokyo Blade as a force to be reckoned with in the heavy metal scene. The album features songs like "If Heaven Is Hell" and "Night of the Blade," which have become staples in the band's live set.
Tokyo Blade's second album, "Night of the Blade," was released in 1984 and is considered by many fans to be their best work. The album features the hit singles "Someone to Love" and "Rock Me to the Limit," which helped the band gain a larger following. "Night of the Blade" showcases the band's ability to blend hard-hitting riffs and catchy hooks, making it a fan-favorite.
The band continued to release albums throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, but they never achieved the same level of commercial success as their earlier releases. Despite this, Tokyo Blade remained a popular live act and continued to tour regularly.
In the late 1990s, Tokyo Blade went through a period of hiatus, during which time several members left the band. However, in 2011, the band reformed with a new lineup and released their eleventh studio album, "Thousand Men Strong." The album was well-received by fans and critics alike and showcased the band's ability to adapt their sound to modern times while still staying true to their roots. Tokyo Blade's longevity can be attributed to their ability to evolve and adapt their sound while still maintaining their core identity as a heavy metal band. They have experimented with different styles over the years, incorporating elements of hard rock, punk rock, and even progressive rock into their music. Despite these changes, Tokyo Blade has never lost sight of their roots and has always stayed true to the NWOBHM sound that made them famous.
