Heavy Metal Anthem is Japanese heavy metal band Anthem's return album, released nearly 8 years since their disbandment in the early 1990s, it's the eighth studio album. Most of the former members play on the album, but the original vocalist, Eizo Sakamoto, did not return until the next album (Seven Hills). The album was released on April 21, 2000 and was a joint collaboration between the band and singer Graham Bonnet.[1] Most of the songs are Anthem's older releases, which have been remixed and sung in English by Bonnet.[2]
