Mexican thrashers Strikemaster will release their second and previously hard to find full-length album on CD format through Metalhit.com. Recorded in 2009, the album, “Vicious Nightmare,” reeks of blazing thrash assaults coupled with an aggressive speed metal persuasion.
Under license from the band, Metalhit will produce a limited edition Digipak CD of the album featuring new artwork by underground illustrator, Mark Riddick. The album is set for release on February 14th, 2012 and is available for pre-order here. Metalhit commented:
"Strikemaster formed in 2005 and has been producing quality, true-to-form, thrash metal ever since! The band has performed live with numerous headliners touring throughout Mexico and has been featured on various compilations, including Katon D. Pena’s (HIRAX), 'Thrash Metal Warriors' CD.
"This special edition of 'Vicious Nightmare' will be available exclusively in the USA, Canada and the UK via online retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, FYE, HMV, Barnes & Noble, Hells Headbangers, et al, and in select indie stores that sell metal!
"Metalhit.com also manages the trend-setting heavy metal brand, Metal Maniacs. Watch for an exclusive interview with Strikemaster soon at MetalManiacs.com."
