Short Sharp Shock  

SSS (or Short Sharp Shock, the band goes by both name and initials interchangeably) is riding the retro thrash craze that is booming worldwide at the moment. Most of the others doing this right now are squarely in the Exodus or early Metallica style, but these guys are somewhat more aligned with the old 80's crossover style, due mostly to Foxy's punky vocals as well as a more frenetic, slightly looser feel and a lot of short songs (many under two minutes). The guitars are raw, with that underproduced yet razor-sharp sound that just makes every song that much better. Earache seems to be driving the thrash revival bandwagon, having recently signed Evile and Bonded By Blood along with this mob. Keep an eye on these guys.
