Edmonton shredders STRIKER have added another souvenir to their trophy case with their latest win for “Metal/Hard Rock Artist of The Year” from this year’s 15th annual Western Canadian Music Awards held during Breakout West on September 14th at the Dinwoodie Lounge in Edmonton, AB. For more info, please visit the following link here.

“We are honoured to win the Western Canadian Music Award for Metal Artist two years in a row! Very special thanks to everyone on our team and everyone who has been supporting us, it’s been an amazing year and it’s not over yet!” comments guitarist Tim Brown.

STRIKER was nominated alongside the following Western Canadian bands:

Metal/Hard Music Artist of the Year:
All Else Fails (AB)
Black Thunder (SK)
Soul Mates (SK)
Striker (AB) – Winner
Untimely Demise (SK)

STRIKER have been riding quite the bullet train this year in support of their latest self-titled album released this past February via their indie label Record Breaking Records. Touring Europe with Sonata Arctica plus performing on 70,000 Tons of Metal along with an Edmonton Music Award win for Metal Recording of the 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 have unleashed their 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.Watch “Former Glory” at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHVXIqJWZ4A

STRIKER‘s self-titled album features 9 shredding tracks that are all killer and no filler to continue the band’s classic mix of heavy metal to follow 2016’s highly praised “Stand In The Fire”. The album was self-recorded by the band (Dan Clearly (vocals), Tim Brown (lead/rhythm guitars), William Wallace (bass), Adam Brown (drums) plus help from Randy Black (Primal Fear, Bif Naked, Annihilator) who filled in on drums while Adam was away during recording) along with mixing done by genius Frederik Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, In Flames, Opeth).
