With piercing vocals and a buzzsaw guitar attack that could seemingly gnaw through granite, Art of Shock delivers lots of wailing, hard rocking power. The classic and crafty "Live Forever," the Priest/Maiden-fueled "Father," and the hardcore punk in- fluenced "We Are Living Dead" each has pleasures, particularly in the vocals and guitars.

We'd like the guitars louder at times and we wish the drumming could generally be more muscular. All in all, based on these recordings—set for a fall album release—Art of Shock is a live act with high impact!. - Music Connection Magazine


Los Angeles, CA – Los Angeles rock band ART OF SHOCK is taking a stand against the Sunset Junction Music Festival weekend happening at the east end of Sunset Boulevard by holding their own show on the Sunset Strip instead – ‘Screw the Junction ‘11’ at the Roxy on Saturday, August 28, 2011. The bill is rounded out by CONCRETE SLEDGE
and OPHIUCHUS.

ART OF SHOCK – Art Geezar (vocals, guitar), Adrian Geezar (drums), Arno Nurmisto (bass) and Gianni Rosati (guitar) – have built their name up throughout the Los Angeles music scene through persistence and hard work. Having played clubs from the Roxy and the Viper Room in West Hollywood to Skinnie’s in North Hollywood and as far out as Orange County, the band is slowly getting in front of audiences and winning people over one at a time.

ART OF SHOCK has issued two singles, “Father” and “We Are Living Dead,” which are both currently available at artofshock.bandcamp.com, as well as iTunes and other digital retailers.

ART OF SHOCK – The Singles

Art of Shock the hidden gem in Hollywood, America — actually they are not that hidden but for Australian me this fabulous band is a new discovery — a Eureka experience like discovering gold! Art of Shock knows how to mix metal guitar riffs with hard rock drums and strong vocals.

A few weeks ago I wrote a review on their exhilarating show at The Viper Room, now here’s a brief breakdown on their album released in singles like in the 60s. This smart and refreshing move from Art and Adrian Geezar, Arno Nurmisto and Gianni Rosati follows advice from Producer Steve Kravacs who has put his personal touch and producing expertise on a long list of acts including Blink 182, MXPX and Less Than Jake. Steve is now working with Art Of Shock to bring another dimension to their songs.

The Hollywood boys have been releasing singles via their website http://www.shock-online.com distributing them FREE, and sharing the love of music for the people by the people. Every song they have released so far has individual energy but when you listen to them, one after the other the energy multiplies to an ecstatic, electric surge that is awesome!
All their songs are a mixture of heavy Hard Rock and Metal with meaningful intelligent lyrics surrounding a whole lot of heart — not surprising because music reflects the members of a band and these guys are the nicest people you could meet. They listen to those around not just sing, and that’s why their music sounds truthful and connecting.

If you want to blow off steam, rock your body by crazy moshing and yell along with the lyrics then put on one of Art of Shocks fast- paced tracks ‘Beggars Of Life’, ‘Hollywood Kids’ or ‘We are living Dead’— they’re sure to get your heart racing, body moving and vocal chords working. Even the slower tracks ‘Father’, ‘Little Raven’ and ‘Your Blood’ make you move and sing along.

All of Art Of Shocks music is fun. You easily connect listening to Art Geezer’s powerful voice above the instruments, feel his passion, his bond with the music — singing as if it is the whole reason for living! This is a fantastic quality to have as an artist. (There are too many artists bringing out music that just doesn’t gel with what they are singing or they sound unattached without passion for their own song!)

If you want to go on a musical journey, love the sound of metal and hard rock, want connected to passionate music that adds to life then this amazing ‘new’ band is a must for your collection! For an unforgettable musical experience go to Art Of Shocks Website and either download for free, or even better, buy their music (musicians must eat!!) and lose yourself in yet another fantastic band from this oh so cool America I’m discovering.

"Art Geezar is the second coming of Axl Rose, ART OF SHOCK plays the music that builds the Sunset Strip"

-Al Bowman, Founder and President of The LA Music Awards

Out of the musical wasteland of Hollywood, California comes ART OF SHOCK as a powerful injection of fresh blood, capable of traveling through many musical landscapes, from the blues to thrash metal to pop seamlessly, their eclecticism resembles that of bands like Queen or The Beatles, bands that had no boundaries and kept pushing the envelope looking forward to the future of Rock music.

ART GEEZAR is a magnificent showman, virtuoso guitar player who possesses an amazing vocal range that brings Freddie Mercury, Axl Rose and Steven Tyler to mind, ARNO NURMSTO is the heavy pounding bass player that mixes the good taste of John Paul Jones with the showmanship of Gene Simmons, both, prolific songwriters and multi-instrumentalists get the cohesion for their ideas with the driving force of ADRIAN GEEZAR s drumming, the next in line in the tradition of Rock greats like Lars Ulrich, John Bonham or Tommy Lee.

ART OF SHOCK possesses great international appeal, theyve been taking the sunset strip by storm with their over the top performances, that resemble those of the greatest Rock bands.

ART OF SHOCK just released their debut album Live Forever produced by Steve Kravac (Blink 182, NOFX, Less than Jake),
