NIGHTSTRYKE is a young Finnish act, formed in 2015 by Rami Hermunen (vocals, guitar). Except doing several demos and singles, the band released its debut self-produced album entitled ”Power Shall Prevail”, in 2017.
NIGHTSTRYKE played countless local shows with other Finnish acts such as ANGEL SWORD, OUTLAW or CHEVALIER, what established their position as of one of the most interesting ”New Wave Of Traditional Heavy Metal” acts from Finland. Their style is a combination of influence of classic NWOBHM bands such as IRON MAIDEN, ANGEL WITCH or MYTHRA, underground heroes such as GOTHAM CITY, HIROSHIMA or H-BOMB, and young, lethal energy.
In 2020 the band inked a deal with SKOL RECORDS, the well respected label known from discovering acts such as SAVAGE MASTER, or high quality reissues of such legendary bands as S.A. SLAYER, TITAN FORCE, SARACEN or AXEWITCH. Their new studio album ”Storm Of Steel” has been produced and mastered by the heavy metal veteran Bart Gabriel (HEXX, CIRITH UNGOL, PAGAN ALTAR), and mixed by Cederick Forsberg (CRYSTAL VIPER, BLAZON STONE).
