MyGlobalMind Review - Thousand Men Strong
March 24th 2011
Another blinder, this time from MyGlobalMInd online Rock & Metal webzine
From the meticulous crafted ear screeching intro of the opening slab of metal “Black Abyss” you are suckered punch in with a thundering affray.
Tokyo Blade certainly makes a case for why in the hell did it take them so long to release a record. The band’s undeniabe chemistry is shown on each song...
I like it enough to recommend to not just fans of the band but any metal fan in general. Knock it back mother truckers.

Metal Kaoz Review - Thousand Men Strong
March 23rd 2011
Great review from Metal Kaoz
To put it simply the album is absolutely great!
I have to admit that “Thousand Men Strong” is a great ‘comeback’ and there are no second thoughts here. The band managed to capture their sound from the 80s and delivered an album for their dedicated fans.

Uber Rock Review - Thousand Men Strong
March 21st 2011
Another great review. This time from Uber Rock.
Cited in some quarters as being the band's real third album and the natural successor to 1984's classic 'Night Of The Blade', you can really see the points of reference, and fans of early Tokyo Blade will certainly not be disappointed!
Musically the ten tracks (nine of which are new) are all really good stuff, technically accomplished and all that. Chris Tsangarides' touch is evident in the quality of the mix. The rhythm section sounds together and tight as hell. The experience is evident throughout the album
Rockchoice Review - Thousand Men Strong
March 19th 2011
Rockchoice.com have issued a stunning review of the new album.
It’s not very often a band that has parted ways and not seen each other for years gets another chance to regroup and record an epic record, but with Tokyo Blade that is exactly the case.
These ten (count em) ten hard hitting, kick ass songs come straight from the gut of these seasoned veterans of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal scene from the 80’s. Thousand Men Strong contains no fillers, no preservatives and no ballads, just pure straight forward no bullshit metal.
