Video premiere: Striker takes us back to our “Former Glory” days

Posted by on September 8, 2017

Striker are currently one of the fastest growing metal acts in Canada. Their presence expanded since the release of their fifth studio album, Striker, which was released earlier this year via Record Breaking Records. They revive everything we love about heavy metal, mixing a fair blend of power, thrash and arguably, hair. Their live energy can be compared with other modern thrash acts such as Warbringer, and it’s what we need right now, in terms of new music.

Striker gained roughly 3,000 more fans when they embarked 70,000 Tons of Metal and have toured with Sonata Arctica in Europe. Now, the group are supporting Swedish metal titans, Dark Tranquillity for a North American run with Warbringer. To celebrate this trek, they unleashed a music video for “Former Glory,” taken from their latest effort, Striker.

The song re-awakens the classic heavy metal style, as the cutting-edge video continues to shred, making us eager to see them live on stage. Check out their tour dates below the video.
