Shokker EP

By Jay Oakley

Chicago-based quartet Shokker have just put out their debut EP and they're worth getting excited about. A three song disc that leaves you begging for a full length. Tracks "Adrenaline," "Midnight Sun" and "Turn Around And Run" are heavy, aggressive and very musically sharp.

Guitarist Casey Tremont strings riffs and solos together that would make even the most seasoned axe-man blush and hide. Bassist Jorey Guillermo and drummer Ben Silverman are as tight a rhythm section as you get. Vocalist Rachl Quinn's a tough, stand-alone front woman with very strong vocal talent.

Shokker electrifies. They're old school rock and roll just the way we all remember it. Crisp, clean and tight which shows the dedication to their craft. &
