Striker Revels In “Former Glory” With New Video

Edmonton shredding crew Striker is riding quite the bullet train this year in support of a self-titled album released this past February via indie label Record Breaking Records.

Touring Europe with Sonata Arctica, plus performing on 70,000 Tons of Metal along with an award win (Edmonton Music Award) 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 North America (dates listed below), this power quartet today unleashes new music video “Former Glory.” The video captures the classic heavy metal of past and showcases Striker bringing it to the forefront of present day headbanging.

Rather than meticulously plan things out or stick rigidly to any kind of template, when it comes to writing, The Black Dahlia Murder prefer to let things happen organically. In the hands of guitarist Brian Eschbach – who co-founded the band with front-man Trevor Strnad in 2001 – and new recruit Brandon Ellis (Arsis, ex-Cannabis Corpse), Nightbringers is rich with dynamic riffs that are at once fresh and classic The Black Dahlia Murder, resulting in a collection that shifts through many moods and effortlessly incorporates various elements of extreme metal. While Strnad explores a variety of themes and ideas with his lyrics, they are united by the album’s title, which embraces a tenet that has been central to The Black Dahlia Murder‘s output since the very beginning. “Death metal and nighttime are synonymous to me,” Strnad explains. “We are the rulers of the darkened hours that the Christian good fears. A lot of archaic ideas that are still upheld – such as marriage and monogamy – came from Christianity, whether people want to acknowledge it or not, and to me, death metal has always been bucking that. It’s ‘being-the-villain music’, because we’re the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of all that is good and traditional. Death metal is for free thinkers, it’s for showing people the path to inner strength and operating on your own will, instead of being told what to do and living in fear, and songs like the title track and ‘Kings Of The Nightworld’ are about leading a legion of awakened minds into battle.”
