Canadian heavy metal shredders STRIKER to unleash seventh studio album

Canadian heavy metal shredders STRIKER will release their seventh studio album “ULTRAPOWER” on February 2nd, 2024. The album was produced by Josh Schroeder (Lorna Shore, Tallah, King 810). This is preceded by the single CIRCLE OF EVIL. Watch the video here.

“ULTRAPOWER” follows their Juno Award-winning self-released full-length “Play to Win” (2018) released on their label Record Breaking Records and features the band’s latest lineup addition of long-time friend and guitarist John Simon Fallon (The Order of Chaos). For the band’s seventh full-length, they teamed up with producer Josh Schroeder (Lorna Shore, Tallah, King 810), entering the studio this past March. With the band writing material since 2018, “ULTRAPOWER” is a collection of Striker tinkering and exploring new avenues.

“ULTRAPOWER is the amalgamation of 5 years of writing and exploring music. With influences from AOR to Speed Metal, Hardcore to Hair Metal, Steely Dan to Deathcore, you name it, it made its way into the album. In the end with the help of Josh Schroeder’s guiding hand, we melted it all together to present something uniquely Striker. Lyrically we’ve stuck to the Striker tradition of writing montage songs for movies that don’t exist, songs about our spiraling serfdom, and lyrics about the evils that lurk in the shadows.” adds the band.

The album artwork created by Al Perez / Ramone Sketch (@ramonesketch) and the track listing for “ULTRAPOWER” can be seen below.

“We wanted the album artwork to represent how we feel as a band right now. We are an engine that is fired up and ready to roll. We’re made of metal and our circuits gleam!”
