I bought this album on vinyl in early 84 and I Was amazed how well crafted these musicians where great leads great vocals and melodies

From: Bladez Date: February 1, 2002 at 15:20
hmm, correction - Andy Robbins played , and Ray Dismore was the guitarist on tracks 1,3,4 & 6. Great debut - if u like Maiden you'll love this! www.angelfire.com/rock3/tokyoblade/home.htm

One of the most under rated bands...ever! A fan from the first album.

From: Date: May 7, 2003 at 13:07
Got this album when I was 16 back in 84....thought I had stumbled on the next big thing....then they go and give Alan Marsh the arse and it was all down hill from there. I bought next two albums....not quite the same as this gem.

IF HEAVEN IS HELL took me to wuthering heights:it still does!

From: Tina Date: January 9, 2004 at 16:52
Does anyone know where Andy Wrighton is now? I met him and the band back in 1984 in London.

Can't believe it!!! Alan Marsh?!? Isn't it a joke?!? Jeeeeeeeezzzz... if I had a time machine I would use it to go back to the '80s and see Tokyo Blade on stage!!! :-)

From: Mr Marsh Date: April 21, 2004 at 7:00
No it is no joke, it is me. If we were back together we'd make a new album. But, bad luck struck me and now i work at a military airport! Outside Salisbury!!!!!!! (BUY SHOGUN AND TOKYO BLADE) Shogun is my other band! Go to www.angelfire.com/rock3/tokyoblade to find more stuff

From: Date: May 1, 2004 at 19:26
Well, well... then it's really you! Just great... I surely know about Shogun and have 31 days on vinyl as well as a7' from this band. Have got almost everything from TB... but still trying to get a copy of the Genghis Khan 7'!!! Thanks a lot for the web site... I actually already knew it and check it regularly looking for news. By the way.. is there any e-mail address I can write to you (if I may, of course)? Till next time.. all the best from Milan, Italy!

From: Mr.Marsh Date: May 4, 2004 at 6:58

Hello all. I just though that I'd let you know that there is now a new TB forum up and running. http://cobranaconda.proboards32.com/index.cgi It has me as the admin and Chris Marsh (Alan's son) as a Global Mod. I hope that you all come and visit.

Classic album by a classic band!!!!!.Enough said.

From: CS2007 Date: October 9, 2007 at 17:01
One of the best NWOBHM albums, although the band's discography can be confusing to a newcomer to the band. This album has a different track listing in the UK. There is a song called "On Through the Night", which is probably the best song on the album other than "If Heaven is Hell". I have no idea why they would not include this song on the American version of the album. A very overlooked NWOBHM band.

From: hair metal again Date: November 21, 2011 at 10:04
powerful debut by TOKYO BLADE !heavy rock with big guitars and fast songs!the spirit of the early 80 s metal UK scene is captured here and the result is pretty good."if heaven is hell" and "highway passion " the highlights

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 17, 2016 at 13:19
Listening again to this classic release!!!...tracks 1,2,6,7 & 8 are for me right away ...i own this jewel on vinyl so it's more worth the loving of having it .80/100
