 A True Masterpiece
Reviewer: A Really Cool Chick...
Hellshock is one of the BEST up and coming metal bands known to Chicago. This CD displays that which is pure rawness and savage emotion. Seeing them live is like an adrenaline rush in itself, and if you don't have the CD yet trust me when I say getting it is a wise investment. I wish the band the best of luck. However, it should be obvious to anyone whose heard or had the privelage of seeing them live that these guys will be next big thing to come out of Chicago...

Reviewer: Valentino
the burn e.p. is fantastic , a true must-have for anyone whom may like real hard rock. i have been a fan of this band since it's start. i have seen them grow as true musicians , with a unique style and sound that leaves me to hear a note or two , and know that it could only be HELLSHOCK. seeing this band many times, i consider myself quite fortunate. i also saw them this past weekend , and was totally amazed once again. THIS band IS ready to take on the world , on a first class ticket. i wish them the best.
 The next big band from CHi town
Reviewer: Smitty
I just saw these guys last night at the Metro in CHI town and they were absolutly amazing... Extremly talented, versatile and moving. The crowd was fired up and the mosh pit wasn't for the weak. Best show I've seen since Disturbed....They are next in line for stardom!!
