Unbelievably, Canadian maniacs Striker made a quick turn around since their last release, Stand in the Fire, now putting out a self-titled album just 54 weeks later on their own label, Record Breaking Records.
I have to be in a certain mood to listen to particular types of Metal. Lately I just haven’t been in the right place to fully appreciate Ex Deo’s take on Symphonic Death Metal on The Immortal Wars from Napalm Records.
I don’t think there is anything I can say about Overkill that hasn’t been said before, by me or pretty much any other fan of Thrash Metal. I’m simply amazed that after all this time, they still sound fresh, relevant, and aren’t afraid to stick to their guns.
When you discover an album that totally blows your mind, it’s a rather amazing experience. As a religious fan of the European metal scene, I was taken and surprised to hear where these guys are from and after listening to the album, they’re on my radar for good.
