Dying Victims Productions announces July 8th as the international release date for a brand-new EP from Spiker, Heavy Metal Macht, on CD, 12″ vinyl, and cassette tape formats.
Ever aptly titled, Heavy Metal Macht is indeed pure German metal THUNDER! No thrash, no speed, just simple (and simply stunning) HEAVY METAL brewed in the cauldrons of old, all delivered in Spiker‘s mother tongue, as a nod to the old GDR metal bands that also sang in German. Classy and cruising whilst emitting a touch of rowdiness that’s intrinsic to the Teutonic rivethead ethos, here on Heavy Metal Macht do this young quartet of old souls charge into the night with gusto and panache, armed to the teeth with anthems of indelible steel. Granted, Spiker can certainly kick up the pace when they want to, but their thrust isn’t strictly speed metal per se, but rather a hook-intensive sort somewhere between early Living Death and classic Tank, Germany’s Warrant and Strong Arm of the Law-era Saxon. You’ve been warned about their Heavy Metal Macht!
The first warning comes in the form of the new track “Der Rock der’s bringt” HERE at Dying Victims‘ official YouTube channel. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
