Track Premiere: Stalker – “Shadow of the Sword”

If all you really want out of new music is to be transported to the days of big hair, leather and speed metal guitar riffs, Stalker are a band that should be on your radar. The New Zealanders combine galloping riffs, soaring high-pitched screams and old school-style soloing that feels vintage yet familiar on the title track to their new album, Shadow of the Sword.

Stalker are set to release Shadow of the Sword on November 17 through Napalm Records.
