Comprising Alan Clark (guitar), Steve Small (guitar), Colin Bell (bass), Ian Thompson (drums) and Phil Brown (vocals), UK hard rock band Dark Heart formed in 1982. Their first recordings were for the Guardian Records compilation Pure Overkill, at which time the group was still known as Tokyo Rose. After changing their name to Dark Heart they signed to Roadrunner Records for 1984’s Shadows Of The Night - a predictable and unexciting collection, influenced heavily by the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal tradition established by bands such as Samson and Iron Maiden. It failed to sell and when Brown departed, Dark Heart disbanded.
