NIGHTSTRYKE “Power Shall Prevail”

NIGHTSTRYKE
“Power Shall Prevail”
(Stormspell Records)

Battle Helm Rating

When President Obama mentioned Finnish metal in a speech you knew that it had entered all walks of life in Finland. So it came as no surprise that this week would contain at least one Finnish metal band. I just didn’t know that it would be in the shape of NIGHTSTRYKE. This is classic NWOBHM done the Finnish way. There is a rock’n’roll feel to this that makes me think of The Hellacopters gone heavy metal. But that doesn’t really make any difference because this is still so much heavy metal that you could even throw in The Rasmus and I would still like this album. This is one of the nicest surprises this week. A really cool album. Anders Ekdahl
