Formed in 1982, Shok Paris is one of the iconic US metal bands of the ’80s, releasing the classic albums “Go For The Throat“, “Steel And Starlight” and “Concrete Killers“, while they toured with bands like Savatage and Lizzy Borden.
All over the last years, they performed selected shows and took part in festivals like Bang Your Head, Up The Hammers, Keep It True and Headbangers Open Air. New songs were always on the back of their heads, and finally the time arrived!
“Full Metal Jacket” is faithful to their trademark sound, and Shok Paris deliver their classic riffs, catchy choruses and hooks. Singer Vic Hix sounds just like the old days, the Flying V of guitarist Ken Erb is on fire, and John Korsekwa (guitar), Ed Stephens (bass), Donovan Kenaga (drums) complete the current line-up since 2010, delivering the goods.
Old-school power, melody and feeling, is what you will get here!”
