History

Despite the odd moniker, Gothic Slam was a band whose chosen sub- genre was thrash metal. Torrid was the label Exodus was on and the New Jersey band was licensed for distribution by Roadrunner where a couple of band members later landed as well.
The prophetic Just A Face In The Crowd was produced by Raven's drummer Rob Hunter.
The Stryker moniker existed for a couple of years beginning with 1984 and eventually became Gothic Slam. The band played with Morbid Angel, Death Angel and others in its time. Chavarri can also be heard on Laaz Rockit's Nothing'$ Sacred LP. Gomez remained active with Ill Nino and played guitar and bass for many other projects.
