STUKA SQUADRON is an award-winning Heavy Metal act whose 'Tales of the Ost' (2011) album garnered considerable critical praise and excellent album sales.
The band was founded in 2008 by former members of Centurion's Ghost and Raising Cain (among others) and toured extensively around the release of their debut album. There was a brief hiatus when some band members formed IRON KNIGHTS for the 'New Sound of War' album (2012), which was originally released as a 'Stuka Squadron' album. However the original members then reformed the band in 2014. STUKA SQUADRON has been heavily featured in the music press (Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, Terrorizer Magazine etc) almost always in an extremely positive light.
STUKA SQUADRON portrays vampire warriors who have fought on innumerable battlefields and enjoyed adventures across the world, pitting them against adversaries both mortal and immortal. The name celebrates the band's most recent wartime incarnation, but - as the song relates, STUKA SQUADRON's bloody bootprints echo through the pages of history....
STUKA SQUADRON has been compared to the likes of IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST. The lyrics of STUKA SQUADRON reflect themes related to WAR, THE OCCULT, the tales of H P LOVECRAFT and the trials and tribulations of vampirism - particularly based on the band's own interminable internal conflicts, feuds, squabbles and in-jokes.
The band have finally completed work on the long-awaited follow-up to 'Tales of the Ost', 'Zeppelin' which is set for release shortly.
