Metallic Hardcore Band Dagger Release Drum Playthrough Video [Hong Kong]

Hong Kong-based metallic hardcore band Dagger has released a drum playthrough video for a track entitled Step Back. Their drummer Ivan Wing had this to say:

“Mixer and producer Joey Sturgis reached out for an opportunity to try out Dave Otero’s drum samples from the company DrumForge, and when he asked we were in the middle of re-recording some room tracks so I took the opportunity to showcase Dagger’s music and the drum samples in this video.”

The track itself comes off the band’s upcoming split EP with Thai monsters Ugoslabier entitled With Grievance. The split will include 3 tracks from each band and will be released on CD format under Blackat Records out of Thailand. Dagger’s track listing is as follows:

  1. Speech
  2. Yellow Helmets
  3. Relentless
  4. Step Back

Both Step Back and Yellow Helmets feature insanely powerful female vocalists from Hong Kong’s underground community so watch out for that.

Dagger’s next show will be in Hong Kong opening for Implore. Info for the show can be found in the flyer below and at this link:
