Indisputably one of the most popular heavy metal band in Japan, SABER TIGER was formed in 1981 by founding member Akihito Kinoshita (Guitars).

After releasing three albums through indie metal label, SABER TIGER signed their first major contract with Tokuma Japan Communications. The band's 1997 major debut album, PROJECT ONE featuring Ron Keel on vocals thrust SABER TIGER to the front of the flourishing Japanese metal scene.

After a successful collaboration with Ron Keel, SABER TIGER finally released three great albums (BRAIN DRAIN, SABER TIGER, F.U.S.E., ) with tremendous talented singer Takenori Shimoyama.

These three albums revealed a new maturity and improved their commercial and critical standing in the Japanese charts, adding yet another epic chapter in the band's career.

In 2002, due to different musical ideas and goals, Takenori Shimoyama decided to leave the band to pursue own heavy metal music. Takenori Shimoyama was introduced into new band DOUBLE DEALER and made a huge success in Japanese market. DOUBLE DEALER signed a European-wide record contract with NTS/Limb Music and pillaged through Europe on tour with Symphony X.

After Takenori Shimoyama's departure, the band persevered and continued to write and record new music. And it seems certain that SABER TIGER have never let their fans down by remaining musically consistent and true to their roots for over 25 years and an unprecedented eight full length original studio albums, despite frequent line-up changes.

In 2010, SABER TIGER officially announced the ground shaking reunion with Takenori Shimoyama and reforming the band into best line-up ever. The former members Yasuharu "Machine" Tanaka (Guitars) rejoined the ranks of SABER TIGER, and Yasuhiro Mizuno joined the band as the new drummer.


Current line-up:
Takenori Shimoyama - Vocals
Akihito Kinoshita - Guitars
Yasuharu "Machine" Tanaka - Guitars
Takanobu Kimoto - Bass
Yasuhiro Mizuno - Drums
