Tokyo Blade: Interview With Andy Boulton
On March 11, Aniruddh "Andrew" Bansal of Metal Assault conducted an interview with Andy Boulton (guitar) of the NWOBHM band Tokyo Blade. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player on top.
Fastball Music has set a March 18 release date for "Thousand Men Strong", the brand new studio album from the newly revamped lineup of the NWOBHM band Tokyo Blade — featuring Andy Boulton (guitar), John Wiggins (guitar), Andy Wrighton (bass) and Steve Pierce (drums), alongside new singer Nicolaj "Nick" Ruhnow. The CD was helmed by veteran British producer Chris Tsangarides.
Exactly thirty years ago Boulton founded Tokyo Blade together withAlan Marsh (vocals), Ray Dismore (guitar), Andy Robbins (bass) andSteve Pierce (drums) in Salisbury. At first, they called themselves Killer, then Genghis Khan before they took on the band name Tokyo Blade for good in 1983.
Boulton reactivated his former companions in 2009 due to the ongoing interest in the band. The race for the position of the vocalist was won by the German prodigy Nicolaj Ruhnow who also takes an active part in the melodic metal band Domain and his own project Nick Hellfort.
