Fresh off of their massive tour alongside Weedeater, Black Tusk and The Gates of Slumber, Ohio-based hardcore/sludge crossover masters STRUCK BY LIGHTNING are currently seeking a full-time, permanent bassist to join the band's roster.

Requirements for STRUCK BY LIGHTNING's bassist position:

-Must be ready and willing to tour heavily.

-Must own/be able to purchase necessary gear for recording/touring.

-Must be willing to relocate to beautiful Columbus, Ohio.

Prior studio/touring experience would be greatly preferred. Interested parties should contact Gregory: worshipthestorm@hotmail.com

STRUCK BY LIGHTNING's debut full-length Serpents was released in late September 2009 via Translation Loss Records. The band's intensely brutal and varied song structures on the record have continuously sucked in new listeners, garnishing amazing responses from the media as well as from anybody who has witnessed this beast on the prowl across the country over this past year's live actions.

"...less proggy than Mastodon and less brooding than Baroness, but still as intense as both. We're headbanging!" - Alternative Press

"I'm talking about D-beat anthems that are sad yet huge - funerals, revenge killings, and the wars that follow... Let's hope lightning strikes again." 8/10 - Decibel

"...sounds exhilarating, like a weight-relieved Mastodon." 8/10 - Terrorizer

"...whatever the music's path, the results are the same -- annihilation you can almost hum." 4/5 - Revolver

"Dexterous and occasionally quite complex music, it's also got its share of anthemic choruses, pit-friendly breakdowns..." - Signal To Noise

"...a terrific middle ground between High on Fire, Mastodon, and Disfear. Punk song structures with driving tempos, great metallic guitar work, and stellar vocal parts make this record hard to pass up." - Lambgoat.com
