Biography

Eco-Shock formed in September of 2007 in Kingston, Nova Scotia.

Looking back on the past four years, it really puts things so much perspective on things for us. We've managed to keep a strong lineup and improve together as a band, but more importantly, we've stayed true to our original mission. We wanted to stand apart from other bands while making a difference. For inspiration we looked out to the world, and asked questions... but more importantly we listened.

The 60’s youth movement had bands like The Grateful Dead, The Doors, Joni Mitchell and Hendrix. We felt it was time for another global change and with the increasing awareness of a declining environment and economy we felt the Earth movement needed a voice and that is what Eco-Shock stands for. We are grass roots Earth Rock!

The origins of Eco-Shock began in the summer of 2007. Like most bands in the beginning, we were virtually unknown and only had an original or two. Finding a venue to play in was tough because most gigs were played in bars and clubs and we were underage. Taking young musicians like ourselves seriously was a tough road but we started playing at dens, all age shows, private gigs and even festivals. Finding decent venues was the first major obstacle we had to overcome. And we had done that.

The next obstacle was getting into a recording studio to produce our first album…. Through intense self-promotion, pre-sales, winning battle of the bands and the creation of an Eco-Shock sponsorship program, we were able to fund the recording, pressing and distribution of our first EP.

Recording our First Album
In the Spring of 2009 we recorded and released our debut self-titled album, "Eco-Shock". We've got 8 tracks of AMAZING Rock 'n' Roll music and one awe-inspiring, Celtic instrumental entitled, "I'll Arrive".

Lyrics

Veteran

Written By: Eco-Shock

I've seen the days, I've seen the nights, I've seen
more than you can imagine.
I've seen people die; I've seen people cry, I've seen people with nothing at all.

Veteran, pain in you
Veteran, stay true
Veteran, stand tall
Veteran, take the fall

You swear you've seen it all, still living yet to fall,
Mercy for your soul is never too kind.
Veteran fight, Veteran die, freed too late...
a slave to time.

Veteran, pain in you
Veteran, stay true
Veteran, stand tall
Veteran, take the fall

Metal Massacre

Written By: Eco-Shock

Arson performed in a midnight rage,
clear the streets and hide away
Seek those who kill to be free,
and bring the leaders down to their knees.

Escape, Heavy Escape, Metal Escape,
Metal Massacre (chorus)

We will fight till the inevitable end;
you know we're already dead
On pain of death we will still believe,
I have the right to be me

Chorus

Exist of lies in society rule,
choice of fate inescapably lost
For those of us born to rebel,
not even freedom is free

Chorus

Love Child

Written By: Eco-Shock

Love Child what's goin' through your head,
Love child lets make some war instead
He stood up and looked me in the eye and he
said, "I wont live under your disguise".

I'll Arrive

Written By: Eco-Shock

(Instrumental)
