In 1999, however, Anthem returned with the release of "Heavy Metal Anthem", which was their first and only release featuringvocalist Graham Bonnet, who is known worldwide with his work in Rainbow. In late 2000, Anthem reunited with vocalist EizoSakamoto, and the group then released "Seven Hills" in 2001, which was their first original album release since 1992 since"Heavy Metal Anthem" was largely a rerecording album. In 2014, Sakamoto left Anthem once more and was replaced by YukioMorikawa, and under this lineup, Anthem remain active today, and are often regarded as one of the most iconic andinternationally known Japanese hard rock bands in history. « hide
