Striker is definitely on the run and this new music video will undoubtedly pave the way to even more popularity.

It’s hard to imagine a world without metal. No other form of music allows artistic expression quite like it. Whether it be the aggression of death, the emotion of black or the party attitude of glam, there is literally something for everyone. No matter your mood or disposition, there’s a style for you!

Striker is a heavy metal band from Canada and they’ve definitely got you covered. Active since 2007, Striker specializes in mixing classic heavy metal with the uplifting vibe of glam. This newly created sound has a grounded emphasis on where metal is going now, not where it has  been.

Striker’s latest album Play to Win, was unveiled last year via Record Breaking Records. A new video, “On the Run” was just dropped to hype the band’s ‘Summer of Shred’ tour scheduled which includes stints with Death Angel,  Steel Panther, Holy Grail and Bewitcher.

The music video for “Play to Win” is a performance offering with some unusual clips thrown in. What we believe is a space motif morphs into a collection of alien cells forming a body. The helmeted figure ends up in a craft shooting across the stars in some scenery reminiscent of the animated classic Heavy Metal, when the traveler drops back to Earth in the seat of a sporty Corvette.

Striker is definitely on the run and this new music video will undoubtedly pave the way to even more popularity. The unified choruses, stadium solos and up-tempo vibe gives the band the speed and power we’ve all come to appreciate but there’s a racy unpredictability to this track that keeps me coming back. I can’t wait to hear this executed live! Check out “On the Run” and let the metal of Striker propel you! \m/
