Edmonton, AB metallers STRIKER are ready to set out on a new adventure with their forthcoming album 'Stand In The Fire' being released via their own Record Breaking Records label on February 5, 2016 and before it drops, the band has teamed with Bravewords.com for the Canadian premiere of their new track 'Too Late'. Hear it at the following link below.

'Too Late' - http://bravewords.com/news/exclusive-st ... -streaming

In addition to unleashing 'Too Late', STRIKER has posted a pre-order video explaining their campaign and perks they're giving to fans such as the chance to pick cover songs, set up special shows (how about a kegger!) and details of limited edition artwork and merch options. The pre-order runs from Nov 13 to Dec 10, 2015.

Full Pre-order details can be found at http://www.striker-metal.com

Haven't had a chance to listen to the new song yet, but I'm looking forward to this. With that said, it's amazing how they've kind of already botched this release. I went to pre-order the album, and it's $15, which is reasonable, but then they want $10 shipping to Canada. If it costs $25 to get an album out to the same country that they live in, it has to be absurd to get it anywhere else. I'm hoping that they're able to get this into stores somewhere despite being independent, because I don't really see anyone else buying it otherwise, aside from megafans, and when they're on tour. I get that this is probably what it costs them, but that's also a great reason not to go independent.

Edit: I had a chance to listen to the new song and it's fantastic. I actually wasn't the biggest fan of City of Gold, but this song tops every track on that album except for "Bad Decisions". Really looking forward to this now.

I thought City of Gold was great. I'll looking forward to this. Saw them earlier this year with Artillery and they were fantastic

These guys work fast and play hard, and the other way round too. I've only just gotten used to the last one, which is, indeed, great.

"Too Late" sounds way too hard rocky.

It sounds good, though. Stands to reason that they would release something like this as an advance.

Saw this earlier today myself. I've liked all of their past releases, so I'll definitely pick this up. Think I'll go the digital route for $10 to avoid paying $25 shipped for a CD. I understand it's coming from Canada, but that's one expensive CD. I commend them for going independent and I hope it works out for them.

They're doing an album release show in Edmonton in late January. I probably won't go because I'm not a huge fan of the band, but if I'm bored, I might.

I just recently discovered City of Gold, and I loved it, especially the faster tunes. Definitely interested in this.

I had been avoiding this band, thinking it would be some garbage White Wizzard/Holy Grail thing, but this song "Start Again" from City of Gold sounds legit. I'll be looking more into these dudes - sweet riffs, cool choruses.

Saw this earlier on FB. It was quite the pleasant surprise, I figured they wouldn't put out another album a year and a half after City of Gold.

I will definitely be adding this to my list of albums to look out for in 2016.

SO much shame on you, Emp.

Can't listen to the song right now but I'm pumped. City of Gold and Eyes in the Night were awesome. Didn't care much for Armed to the Teeth too much, but I'm always optimistic.

"Armed to the Teeth" was a really good album, but I never picked up "City of Gold" because I listened to the title track on youtube and it did nothing for me. I will put this one in the maybe pile but if the promo track is week again, I think I will skip it.

New song titled Out For Blood:
Youtube: show


Sounds pretty damn good to me. Really looking forward to this one. I wouldn't have thought that saxophone would have ever made sense in a Striker song, but it somehow worked.

I missed out on the direct pre-order from them (digital because $25 for the CD shipped was a bit much), but I saw the digital download available on Amazon and pre-ordered it (it was cheaper). Looking forward to hearing the rest of it, but so far so good.

Is this the heavy metal band or the thrash metal band?

Listened to the whole thing today, and I am very impressed. I really enjoyed City of Gold, and I think that I like Stand in the Fire even more. Like City of Gold, it seems to be a bit front heavy, but there are a lot of great songs. Probably my favorite release so far this year.

I just got Armed to the Teeth recently and I think it's great (All the Way is a cracking track).

I must check their other stuff.
