Samurai were a Hard FM/Pop project of Francisco Landum guitar/ vocals (ex-TNT/ Ibéria) and Manuel Cardoso guitar/ vocals (prog group Tantra) with the help of Tónica bass and Tony Duarte drums. Their first gig was at the Voxmanias disco on May 29th 1987. At the end of 1986 the band recorded their debut album "Samurai" at M.I.D.I. Studios, produced by Landum and Cardoso. The album included 9 songs, half sung in English, half in Portuguse, "Dance Forever", "Shout For Love", "Amazona", "I Know", "Radio Suicide", "Bandeira", "Sem Ti", "Sexo No Chão", "Amazona (O Regresso das Amazonas)". A maxi single of the track "Dance Forever" was only released in Spain and Sweden. The group lasted only months, giving more two or three concerts, and even was thought of a second album (there were already some songs made and recorded) but with the departure of Landum to Iberia, the project was on standby.
