ShadowStrike begins writing full length debut album!

" Matt Krais, the band’s founding member, guitarist and vocalist stated: “We have been working heavily and very hard on writing new material for our debut full length album. So far, what I can say is it will further expand and add to the ShadowStrike sound, and what we have so far is far beyond our previous material in terms of composition and songwriting."

To all our fan! We have a very important post to share with you all: Collin Partrick and his family need help! They are being evicted from their home which they have resided in for over two decades, and have started this fundraiser to by them some time so they can stay together as a family. 

Collin has been a huge ShadowStrike fan (promoting us and sharing our music) as well as one of the biggest supporters for the United States Power Metal music scene. He has been helping, promoting, sharing, and purchasing many unsigned, independent, and major USPM band's material for a long while, and it's our turn now to help him out.

We urge our friends and fans to help Collin and his family out in this tough time. Please reach out to your fellow man, and help this family stick together in these tough economic times. We here in ShadowStrike thank you, and wish the Partrick family all the best luck we can give. 

Again, the link is: http://www.gofundme.com/cgn3us

All donations go directly to the their family! Please help if you can.

Thank you, everyone!

The son is a great guy, and i'm just trying to help his family out!  Thank you!

The Official G+ Page for the metal band ShadowStrike
Introduction

ShadowStrike, from Long Island, New York, delivers a melodic, fast-paced, and grandiose sound to the local music scene. The band’s main objective is to deliver a fully immersive musical experience that includes an entertaining stage show and utilizes both musical and extra-musical thematic content to draw from pre-established tropes within the fantasy genre.

Bringing in favoured styles of each member, ShadowStrike creates a unique sound for its American audience. Each member of ShadowStrike has strong family ties to various European backgrounds and traditions. This makes itself apparent in the style of metal that they play by including classical orchestrations, and melodies and themes that are reminiscent of European folk music, all while being mixed in with elements from popular American styles, early video games, and Japanese metal music. In short, the core sound of ShadowStrike’s music can be linked to the musical tendencies of almost every culture immersed in the metal genre: a true American experience!
