in the same year we started out nuclear strikes with line-up by Rex, 1.2kill, iron speed, Thunderbolt and male vocalist of Anort.. Nuclear strikes began performing in 2007 with singer men ANORT, Anort one show only with Nuclear Strikes. then is replaced by the EKEY MIZUME female singer, with opportunity to expand our Ekey in Malaysia country, but not long after Ekey Mizume leaving the Nuclear strikes.
