Shock release song “Patriot” for free streaming
Canadian power metal veterans, Shock, have released another song from their new album Forewarned for free streaming.
This time, the band has released the song “Patriot” which can be streamed free of charge at the group’s Bandcamp page. Shock announced on their Facebook page less than an hour ago: “CD copies of Forewarned have now shipped out all over the world, reaching France, Greece, the U.K., Germany, U.S.A., Canada and beyond! The download has been purchased from even further away! In celebration of these sales you can now stream another track from the album, called Patriot. Thanks again for your support!”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Shock‘s sophomore album Forewarned, which was released on November 13, 2015:
“Just like Once Denied, the musicianship on Forewarned is very tight and the production is top notch. The rhythm section of bassist Steve Monette, presumably guitarist John Tennant and drummer Taylor Calderone provides a strong backbone for all the songs. The notable yet seamless difference is that the rather young Calderone is now handling the drums this time around. While Calderone‘s drum kit may be a fraction of the monstrous drum kit utilized by the band’s former drummer that played on Once Denied, Calderone‘s drumming fits oh so well and packs a real punch. The star of the album — just like on Once Denied — is lead singer and guitarist Tony V who delivers varied and intense vocals while also delivering scorching guitar solos. While I am giving credit to Tony V for the guitar solos, I am mindful that Tennant might well be responsible for some of those guitar solos and he deserves his just due in that regard as well.
In terms of how Forewarned fares to Once Denied, I prefer Once Denied simply because it contains the majority of the Shock songs that I grew up listening to back in the day. That being said, Forewarned is a worthy follow up to Once Denied and a must own for anyone who likes quality classic heavy metal music.”
