This is the new album of this new Canadian act. Striker released an EP in 2009 titled “Road Warrior” and their debut album in 2010, “Eyes in the Night”. Their two previous official works where released by Iron Kodex Records. This is their sophomore full length album. Their style could be described as speed metal. In their album they play speed metal but with many traditional heavy metal influences! The whole album flows really well and it makes you want to listen to it again and again. It is really hard to distinguish some of the album’s tracks but I would say that “Fight for your Life” (a real metal hymn!!), “Let it Burn”, “It Could Be Worse” and “Forever” stand out. Especially the guitar work on this album is really great while the clean vocals are really suitable to the album’s material while the production also helps their music. I also really liked the album’s cover. If you like bands like Enforcer, Steelwing, Midnight Priest, Spellcaster, Stonewall, Rockarollas, etc. you should invest! In conclusion Striker is one of the best new Canadian metal bands along with Metallian, Skullfist and Evil Survives and “Armed to the Teeth” is definitely one of the best new albums I have heard recently!
