A Japanese band that gained a lot of popularity outside Japan, Anthem formed the same year Loudness did, but in the Kanto region.

With more straightforward riffs and song writing, unlike their Kanto peers, they would prove to be very influential to the bands that would form in the area. What a phenomenal release Tightrope was!! It’s chock full of fast, catchy riffs with layered vocals that you know you can’t stop listening to once you start. They never really changed their sound drastically, keeping the same formula that had worked for them on the Tightrope album. But even then, the quality never really dropped. Theirs is as consistent a discography as you’re gonna get from a Japanese band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anthem Tightrope

The Japanese metal band has been around since the 80’s. It is worth the purchase if your a big fan of 80’s music, if not you still might like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars アンセムのメタルは本格的だよ
Anthem’s metal is authentic.
Once again, Anthem has created music that properly relates to NWOBHM.
It’s actually faster to listen to the music than to use words.
Japanese fans should be really proud of this band
