Formed in Mid 2008, The Striking Hour was created when Tim from Judas was looking for musicians to support his solo release later in 2008. Vance came in on bass early in the search, with Eddy (formerly Gate and Syn Psycle) on lead guitar. After searching internet sites for a drummer, Mark eventually stumbled across us and had instant chemistry with the others.
After writing a few songs, Vance introduced Byron as the second guitarist, and with all the talent and original material, it was decided to go in a different direction then Judas, thus The Striking Hour was born.
Blending the bands influences of Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, and Lamb of God, The Striking Hour has a distinctive and original sound that still hits a familiar chord with metal heads and hardcore fans alike. We are looking forward to playing shows nearing the end of August 2008.
