Striker carry on the tradition of consistently high level first-class Heavy Metal bands hailing from Canada - just imagine a mixture of Exciter and Savage Grace, intertwined with newer influences of Steelwing or Enforcer, that is what can be expected of the new album 'City Of Gold'.

With this new release, available on Monday 1st September via Napalm Records, Striker pay homage to classic Speed Metal bands, but also work with great Iron Maiden inspired twin guitar harmonies.

"It's about Heavy Metal and a good time," says front man Dan Cleary , "If you're having a party at your house, then put our CD into the player and drink some beer. This music is exactly made for such moments."
