4/5
For 37 years, Tokyo Blade has been offering a mix of catchy rhythms, twin guitars and catchy vocals, wrapped in a melodic atmosphere populated by the ghosts of Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy and Metallica. "Dark Revolution" is still in this vein, which is logical, since all the members of this Tokyo Blade 3.0 were already present on the band's first or second album.

The start of this new production is awesome. The catchy riff on 'Story Of A Nobody' explodes and leads to a hyper-catchy chorus followed by a traditional solo. the title borders on perfection just as 'Burning Rain', with its cleverly crafted and seductive choruses. The way is open for the eponymous very speedy track which is not far from Metallica. The following title, 'The Fastest Gun In Town', is powerful, sharp and melodious, it quickly becomes addictive and reminds us, with its twins guitars, Thin Lizzy. Of course, you will sometimes cross Iron Maiden's path, notably on the huge 'Crack In The Glass', and could even meet another now exctinct band, 220 Volt, on the 'See You Down In Hell' rocket. 

The British samurais seem to be back and are here delivering eleven lethal sword blows. The old ones who knew the NWOBHM have here the opportunity to take a bath in the fountain of youth. As for the younger ones, if the bands of Dickinson, Hetfield and Lynott means something for them, they should throw an ear to this authentic opus, image of a certain era.

La nostalgie est toujours ce qu'elle a été... Il doit y avoir un peu de ça 😁. Vu le nombre de lectures de la chro, il semblerait que ces dinosaures intéressent encore le peuple hard rock en tous cas...

Mon p'tit Lynott, ça ne va pas te plaire et j'en suis désolé mais voici ma vision de ce disque : des plans éculés et fatigants (ces riffs basiques qui ne s'arrêtent jamais, c'est usant) et des titres qui ont une fâcheuse tendance à tous se ressembler (il faut attendre la sixième piste pour avoir enfin l'impression de ne pas écouter un titre en boucle). Comment fais-tu pour accrocher encore à ce genre d'album, toi qui en a déjà écouté des centaines similaires ?
