Hard charging out of the box and into the face, Strikken takes the metal genre and makes a place for themselves. With line up changes and trials, they have kept kicking and screaming to get to the summit. Their drive has taken them in a new direction that is clearly the right one. With the upcoming release of their new album, Long Story Short, the band tells their story of the long hard fought battle to make this album happen. Relentless determination pushes them to never quit, never stop. If you like Killswitch Engage, Soilwork, All That Remains, Sevendust, Bloodsimple, and Slipknot, then check out Strikken.
