"STRIKKEN review"

Based out of Ohio, Strikken is pure aggression flowing through your speakers. For fans of Sevendust, Bloodsimple, and Slipknot, this band will definitely jump out at you. The heavy guitar riffs keep your head banging till the end. The guitars also incorporate some groove in the songwriting to mix styles and add more to the overall style of the band. The vocalist is definitely a bright spot in this band. Whether he attempts screams or clean vocals, both styles are executed well. His vocal styles are perfect for the headbangers and the unaware fans in the crowd. With the talented band behind him, the future is very promising for this band. I'm sure this band's live show is very intense. I'm definitely hoping this band makes their way to my area so I can raise some hell with these guys. HAILS!
