Erupting out of Oakland, California in 2014, War Cloud has left a smoking path across much of the USA over the past five years. Adopting a classic 70s rock and 80s power metal approach and aggressively dousing it in modern sophistication, War Cloud released their self-titled debut album on Ripple Music to much acclaim in 2017.
Their take on metal is a dish best served heavy, and those that have dined on the likes of Saxon, Motorhead, Kiss, Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden will no doubt appreciate the hard rock sophistication, dipped deep in ’70s fuzz, as showcased on their new single, ‘Striker,” now streaming via Metal Injection
Touring extensively in support of their records, War Cloud adapts a take-no-prisoners strategy with the intent to decimate all from the opening tone of each engaging live show.
