3:16 PMMean Streak released new album
On January 28th Mean Streak released their new album "Declaration Of War" which instantly entered the Swedish sales chart!
Mean Streak was formed in 2006 and released their debut album "Metal Slave" in 2009. Now it's time for the follow up to rock the world.
Two new guitarists - David Andersson (ex Soilwork & Björn Strid) and Patrik Gardberg (ex Ammotrack & Solution 45) have been recruited and the album is once again mixed by Fredrik Nordström. "Declaration Of War" contains 11 epic songs which takes the band's NWOBHM sound to new dimensions. The album is all about classic 80's metal, but Mean Streak has also developed their sound quite a bit and we get to hear them perform some progressive tunes here and there, like on "The Oblation" and "Brothers 'til the End" where double pedal bass drums have been left out to offer more atonal and dark arrangements. The band has also developed lyrically, and the production has a modern touch that makes the album sound fresh without losing the spirit of the past. The album is mastered by Thomas "Plec" Johansson (Solution 45).
Mean Streak is just back from a Japan tour supporting the new album. The debut album was very well recieved in Japan upon its 2010 release on Bickee Music.
On January 20th, before the Japan tour, a successful releaseparty was held in Stockholm, with the band performing live to an enthusiastic crowd. None other than Ian Haugland from Europe was shifting records before and after the show.
