Dead End

Dead End were one of several eighties Japanese bands that shone briefly outside their homeland, due to an American release of two of their albums. Their style was melodic, and slightly progressive-flavored, but not radically different from other Japanese bands of that era, like Earthshaker or Anthem. The band disbanded in 1990, shortly before the release of the live album, but apparently have reformed in 2009.
