Italian epic power metallers DRAKKAR will release their new album, "When Lightning Strikes", on January 16, 2012 via My Kingdom Music. The CD — which was recorded and mixed at Elnor Studio by Mattia Stanciou (LABYRINTH, CROWN OF AUTUMN) and mastered at House Of Audio by Jürgen Lusky (ANGRA, PINK CREAM 69) — is once again an epic concept album that melds powerful riffs, majestic melodies and a true metal attitude in the style of RUNNING WILD and BLIND GUARDIAN. The story behind the lyrics is a tale of classic science fiction with hystorical elements that is sure to captivate the more imaginative listeners.
