"Damage Done" is the much-anticipated sixth full length album from Gothenburg's own Dark tranquillity, a band that has become an institution within the realms of extreme Metal, seeing that they deserve full credit for originally kicking off the stylistic wave of melodic Death Metal which has become established and frenetically followed all throughout the world in the meantime.

During their 13 years of existence, Dark tranquillity have always tried to constantly expand their musical borders and stray away from already-conquered territory, and "Damage Done" is certainly no exception to their own artistic goal, being a truly diverse affair showcasing a host of new approaches and inspirational sources. Compared to the electronically-tinged approach of "Haven" (2000) or the laid-back, lush melancholia of the (Swedish) Grammy-nominated entity "Projector" (1999), "Damage Done" is more technical and intense in feel; a direct and solid sound, yet with lots of complex arrangements and sonic structures emerging from below the surface. While not by any means being a sheepish "back to the roots" album, some of the aggressive aesthetics present in Dark tranquillity's earlier work have resurfaced, giving birth to some faster passages, pounding and inherently catchy throughout. From the relentless thrash-o-rama of opener "Final Resistance" to the sombre closing tones of "Ex Nihilo" (the first instrumental in the band's history), "Damage Done" runs the full gamut and showcases a hungry and confident band that presents absolutely no signs of musical exhaustion or willingness to descend from their position as a leading creative force in the metal scene.

Recorded with long term producer Fredrik Nordström at Gothenburg's famous Studio Fredman facilities, the masterfully written and flawlessly executed eleven new creations on "Damage Done" are determined to fully please the passionate melodic Death Metal following as well as bringing new listeners into the very unique and charismatic sound of Dark tranquillity. Watch out for the band to embark on a massive string of tours following the release of this masterpiece of a new album: The damage is done, my friends!

Hardly satisfied with any of the new trends in the metal scene, we decided to take a step back and prove that old-school heavy metal is just as fucking heavy, loud, and shreds twice as hard as anything to date.
Formed in late 2004, we set out to show the local metal scene that Warbringer was a force to be reckoned with, playing no-holds barred rip-roaring thrash metal. After a 4-song demo and ton...s of shows with fellow ragers like Merciless Death, Fueled By Fire, Hirax, Dekapitator, and Toxic Holocaust, we released our "One by One the Wicked Fall" EP in October of 2006. Later that year we had the privilege of signing to one of the most respected heavy metal labels in the world, Century Media.
We recorded our debut album, "War Without End" in the fall of '07 with Mr. Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Fates Warning, Sacred Reich, Hallows Eve) and went on to appear on a few compilation albums such as Speed Kills...Again, Metal For the Masses 6 and Thrashing Like a Maniac comp with some of the best acts around.
We've been honing our live show into a violent thrash assault touring the US with Exodus, Goatwhore and Arsis in January/February; Nile, Suicide Silence, The Faceless and Unexpect in March/April; Europe with Napalm Death and Suffocation in May/June, a week of headline shows in the UK with Gama Bomb, and back to Europe in August with Sworn Enemy and All Shall Perish, which kicked off with our performance at Wacken Open Air, another US/Canadian tour with Finntroll and finally in Oct. supporting Overkill. What a year!
We'll take Nov. and Dec. off completing the writing of the second album and plan to record in January before we go back out on tour. So far we're booked from end of Jan - end of May in the US with back to back tours with Soilwork/Darkane and Kreator/Exodus with plans to spend most of the summer in Europe again.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support, you guys fucking rule!
THRASH OR BE THRASHED FUCKERS!
Striker
It's about time for another Canadian high-octane band to set the world on fire. Standing on the shoulders of Canadian giants like Annihilator, Exciter, Cauldron and the best of European and American Speed Metal, STRIKER certainly are one of the finest newcomers from Canada in the last decade.

Formed in 2007 by Ian Sandercock and Dan Cleary, Striker found a consistent lineup in the Summer of 2008 and released their debut EP "Road Warrior" on Iron Kodex Records. The widely praised EP warranted a European tour invitation, which will include stops at the renowned "Keep it True" Festival in Germany and the "Pounding Metal" Festival in Madrid Spain in Spring 2010 but unfortunately due to volcanic activity the trip had to be cancelled (See the song Fuck Volcanoes for more details)

With their debut full-length "Eyes in the Night" receiving rave reviews from all over the world , Striker has had the privilege of sharing the stage with great bands such as Sacrifice, 3 Inches of Blood, Raven and Sodom, and also have completed a Canadian tour in 2010 and a European tour in early 2011, including a stop at the Metal Assault festival. Now Striker is fully loaded and ready to shred!
