Nicolaj Ruhnow - Vocals
Andy Boulton - Guitar

Re-united original members of Tokyo Blade with our new voice Nicolaj Ruhnow (Hellfort, Domain)...

Originally after recording our first single we got airplay on national Radio1 on Tommy Vance’s Friday Rock Show, signed a recording contract and began our first tour of Europe with the Irish band Mama’s Boy’s. The tour was an amazing success for us and we were almost straight out on our own headline tour of Europe playing 4,000 seat venues which was an amazing feeling going straight into that kind of touring.

On our return we recorded a live session for Radio1, went back to Europe to play some major festivals with Metallica, Ozzy, Whitesnake, Dio, and Slayer etc.

Some years later after we all went our separate ways (more on this on our website www.TokyoBlade.com)

In October ’09 John Wiggins confirmed that he is back in Blade along with Andy Wrighton and I’m very pleased to announce that We are to tour again in Autumn 2010 and a new album with a major producer is on the cards. Soon after a long search Steve Pierce the original drummer came aboard, history is being made.

"Tokyo Blade welcomes Nick Ruhnow, as the vocalist for our new album and tour. Andy B, John and Andy W told me, we are real pleased to have Nic on board he's a fantastic vocalist and great friend. Tokyo Blade are alive again"
