War Cloud will release their new record State Of Shock on September 27, and it's everything you've ever loved about speedy heavy metal with thrashy tendencies. We're premiering the band's new song "Striker" today, which perfectly encapsulates that description. It's also a hell of a lot of fun to listen to at exceedingly loud volumes.
Here's what vocalist and guitarist Alex Wein had to say about the track.
"The initial air raid siren warns the listener of the incoming attack they will soon meet by heavy metal force! The lyrics are from the perspective of a fighter pilot, upon hearing the siren he rushes to his warplane to prepare for battle. As the launch pad to the album this song takes off with only lightning in its wake."
