New all-star project HARD STRIKE
At the beginning of 2019 the two longtime friends Martin Schultz (Blank, Null Art) and Markus Münch (Baffdecks, Bone Idles) finally found the time to start a band together, Hard Strike was born. After the first 2 songs were written, Markus contacted his old bandmate Maurice Müller (Bone Idles) for the drums and Martin his friend Dan Africa (Punch, I Recover) for the bass. As it became clear that a second guitar would advance the sound, Martin contacted Ken Olden (Battery, Better Than A Thousand) with whom he had become friends in recent years. After he gave him the first ideas, Hard Strike was complete.
Despite the distance, Hard Strike managed to record 4 songs in different recording sessions in Karlsruhe, Cologne and DC. Mixed and mastered by Mike Schleibaum (Darkest Hour). Gonna be released on a 7inch. These 4 songs are a tribute to the hardcore sound of the late 80's and early 90's.
Limited first pressing of 300 copies on clear vinyl. Street date feb. 28th 2020.
