Shokker release song “Snake Eyes” for streaming from latest album ‘III’
After releasing the song “Blessed Be”, Chicago, Illinois, USA heavy metal rockers Shokker have released another song entitled “Snake Eyes” for streaming from their debut full-length album III, which was released in April 2017.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of III:
“As I started listening to Shokker‘s debut full-length album III, all I could think was potential, potential, potential. It’s also what I was thinking when I first heard Shokker‘s self-titled EP about one and a half years ago except that at that time, I did not think that Shokker had truly tapped into and harnessed their potential. There were some kinks to fix including reigning in guitar virtuoso Casey Tremont, who perhaps if left to his own devices would have delivered an over the top guitar shred fest like superbly gifted guitar maestro Vinnie Vincent did on Vinnie Vincent Invasion‘s self-titled debut album. The good news is that this time, Shokker have lived up to and harnessed their potential as Tremont (or perhaps the rest of the band) has pulled the brakes on his guitar shredding to give us tasty snippets at the appropriate times on III rather than killer shredding firing occasionally at the wrong times like on the band’s debut self-titled EP.
Shokker‘s new album starts off a little weird with some modern-ish guitar on the title track but quickly shifts into a classic heavy metal barrage highlighted by female lead vocalist Rachl “Raxx” Quinn‘s singing. What a voice! If you had to name your top five all-time female vocalists and you had heard Shokker‘s entire III album, you’d be hard pressed not to include Quinn among your top five, if not the top spot. The rhythm section is rock solid on Shokker‘s III with bassist Jorey Guillermo and newcomer / drummer Dan Dash setting the stage for Tremont and Quinn to shine. “Hammerhead” is built on a solid guitar riff and once again, Quinn‘s vocals simply take over as it feels that she’s telling you some medieval story (or whatever the song is about) while wailing away. “Snake Eyes” and “Life & Despair” are more of the same with the latter having a little bit more melody than the other more straight forward rockers.”
