STRIKKEN was formed in 2001 and is a Columbus, Ohio based metalcore band that has created a unique "melodic metal" sound that bands like Killswitch Engage, Five Finger Death Punch, and Sevendust managed to create. Yet, STRIKKEN has carved their own niche to find their own unique sound to grab your attention.
From opening to headlining across the Midwestern USA, STRIKKEN has seen thousands of faces and hundreds of towns and played over 500 shows. Many memorable gigs include opening for national bands like Drowning Pool, All That Remains, Times of Grace, Bobaflex, Powerman5000, Seether, Egypt Central, Evans Blue, RA, Jackyl and many others. Performing to a sell out crowd at Dirt Fest in Birch Run, Michigan on August 12, 2011 was one of the most satisfying shows ever for STRIKKEN.
STRIKKEN released their new full length album called "Long Story Short" in May 2011 with great success. Mastered by Ben Schigel (Chimaira, Drowning Pool, Lacuna Coil,etc.) at Spider Studios, reviews of "Long Story Short" have been extremely positive across the board. The album is for sale on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, and many more music outlets. Ranging form rock to heavy metal, "Long Story Short" is the culmination of many years of trials and tribulations which came together as the band's first masterpiece.
