Teutonic metal defenders Spiker premiere the new track “Kommando” at the New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal (NWOTHM) YouTube channel. The track hails from the band’s brand-new EP, Heavy Metal Macht, set for international release on July 8th via Dying Victims Productions. Hear Spiker‘s “Kommando” in its entirety exclusively HERE.
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 next warning comes in the form of the new track “Kommando,” which can be heard exclusively HERE, courtesy of the NWOTHM YouTube channel. The first warning comes in the form of the previously revealed “Der Rock der’s bringt” HERE at Dying Victims‘ official YouTube channel. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
