Label: High Roller Records
Release date: 16.04.2021
Around 1983 it looked as if TOKYO BLADE were destined to become the next Iron Maiden. But somehow it wasn’t to be – history was not kind to them! In the end TOKYO BLADE never became the next superstars of the glorious New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement.
“Night Of The Blade” was the follow-up to TOKYO BLADE's extremely successful self-titled debut album. The band's second record was originally released in 1984 on the English Powerstation label and contained classic TOKYO BLADE songs such as “Lightning Strikes”, “Unleash The Beast” or the title track. On the other hand, TOKYO BLADE presented some more melodic numbers such as “Someone To Love” or “Rock Me To The Limit”. This slight alteration of the band's musical direction was partly due to the change of the vocalist (Alan Marsh was substituted by Vicki Wright).
Guitarist Andy Boulton comments on the differences between Marsh and Wright: “Vic was a different person to Alan, but Alan had been a friend I had known for quite a long time and was a key figure in the band's early success, it was a sad day when we parted ways. Alan was just different from Vic and he had his own distinct sound. I don't want to talk about who was better or whatever, it's for the fans to decide. The material on 'Night Of The Blade' was all brand new, no leftovers from from Killer or Genghis Khan.”
TOKYO BLADE's debut (1983) and “Night Of The Blade” (1984) are two of the best albums of the entire New Wave Of British Heavy Metal period. “Night Of The Blade” was recorded by Vicki James Wright (vocals), Andy Boulton (guitar), John Wiggins (guitar), Andy Wrighton (bass) and Steve Pierce (drums).
High Roller Records is proud to re-issue this long-deleted classic once again on glorious vinyl.
