EARACHE RECORDS PROUDLY ANNOUNCES THE SIGNING OF BRITISH THRASHERS, SHORT SHARP SHOCK (SSS)
Ferociously ear splitting, SHORT SHARP SHOCK (most commonly known as SSS), are now part of Earache’s prestigious roster! Rising up from the musical trenches of Liverpool, SSS debuted a raging 6 song demo in October 2005, possessing the tenacity and underground sentiment once coveted by legendary acts S.O.D and Metallica. Oozing with driving momentum, SSS possess the underground heart of early NY hardcore bands, spawning optimal hybrid thrash prowess that is destined to uproot the revival and throw any fan into a tailspin! In late 2006 SSS released a 16 song shocker through Dead and Gone Records, receiving elite critical acclaim and sticking a spotlight on SSS’s riveting underground live shows. Receiving 3 K’s from Kerrang (January 2007 issue), SSS has been noted by Kerrang as “taking us back to a time when all that mattered were riffs and blast beats” - delivering the bricks and mortar of warranted angst-ridden THRASH! SS S will re-issue their self titled through Earache Records and are gearing up to take real thrash to the next level, touring the UK and securing plans to expand throughout Europe. SSS embodies the meaning of their namesake, conjuring songs and live shows that that leave you in Short, Sharp, Shock!
