Audiences are often floored by the energy of their live show, and their recorded material has been met with fantastic response by both fans and industry across the world. Striker has toured across dozens of countries as headliners as well as support for major metal acts. Gearing up for the release of their latest album the sky’s the limit for these Canadians.
The self-titled album new continues the band’s classic mix of heavy metal, hard rock, and 80’s hair metal that features powerful, clean vocals, catchy choruses, vocal harmonies, and impressive guitar leads.
Featuring 9 shredding tracks that’s all killer and no filler, the album follows their award winning (Western Canadian Music Award + Edmonton Music Award) 2016 release ‘Stand In The Fire’.
“This is 35 minutes of your life you’ll be glad you can’t get back. A potent mix of shred that will remind you why you fell in love with metal in the first place.” comments the band.
“This is our no bullshit album. We cut out everything that wasn’t absolutely necessary and kept everything short and to the point. We pray at the altar of heavy metal everyday, and there are some musical ideas that persist through time and some that don’t. We focused in on what keeps listeners coming back and got rid of everything else. You can’t climb Mount Everest dragging any useless shit with you; if you want to make it to the top, only bring with you what is absolutely necessary: Lethal Amounts of Shred.” .
