Edmonton shredders STRIKER have been riding quite the bullet train this year in support of their latest self-titled album released this past February via their indie label Record Breaking Records. Touring Europe with Sonata Arctica plus performing on 70,000 Tons of Metal along with an Edmonton Music Award win and a nomination for a Western Canadian Music Award for "Metal / Hard Rock Artist of Year", there's no stopping these Canadian metal titans. Currently on tour with Dark Tranquillity and Warbringer in the Western United Sates (dates listed below), this power quartet have unleashed their new music video "Former Glory" which originally premiered on but can be seen below. The video captures the classic heavy metal of past and showcases STRIKER bringing it to the forefront of present day headbanging. Now watch "Former Glory" (Official Video):

STRIKER's self-titled album features 9 shredding tracks that are all killer and no filler to continue the band’s classic mix of heavy metal to follow 2016’s highly praised 'Stand In The Fire'. The album was self-recorded by the band featuring Dan Clearly (vocals), Tim Brown (lead/rhythm guitars), William Wallace (bass), Adam Brown (drums) plus help from Randy Black (Primal Fear, Bif Naked, Annihilator) who filled in on drums while Adam was away during recording. Mixing done by genius Frederik Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, In Flames, Opeth). CD and digital download available on, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and CD Baby.
