Let me tell you a few things about SHOCKWAVE. The mysterious metal/hardcore act has been an underappreciated gem of the heavy music world for nearly 20 years – and if the fact that their music is excellent wasn’t enough to intrigue, their basis in the world of TRANSFORMERS lore should be. Back in my days running a Sam Goody store for the long-dead Musicland Group, I played OMEGA SUPREME – THE COMPLETE COLLECTION: 1996-2001 and their 2004 masterpiece, THE ULTIMATE DOOM (both released through Triple Crown Records) probably more times than our mall neighbors would’ve liked (and my store probably sold more copies than the norm as well). In the decade-plus since, I’ve mentioned the band here on THE ROCK FATHER on occasion (here and here), and have used their disguised Decepticon logo as a social profile pic on more than a few occasions. Bottom line: I love SHOCKWAVE, and you should, too. For Record Store Day 2015, THE WORLD IS OURS: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS comes to vinyl…

SHOCKWAVE 2015The Official Announcement is as Follows:

Organized Crime Records will be the ones to blame for bringing SHOCKWAVE out of reclusion, through the disbursing of a vinyl edition of their entire discography for Record Store Day, before returning back into the shadows maybe forever again.

In 1996, before the revivals and campy blockbusters, SHOCKWAVE created a phenomenon in a remote, frozen lake-effect wasteland. Little is known about the clandestine group, but their mission to pay homage to the glory days with blistering dive bombs and barking dual vocals was clear. And although the future for SHOCKWAVE and their movement is unclear, the legacy is unmistakable.

Organized Crime Records is pleased to announce the release of the complete SHOCKWAVE discography, The World Is Ours for Record Store Day, April 18th, 2015. Packaged as a double LP and flexi 7″/decoder set in gatefold jacket, The World Is Ours documents all forty hard-to-find cadences for the first time. Use the decoder flexi 7″ to unlock the secrets within the layout! Want it? Call your local record store to order it from Revelation Distribution for Record Store Day.
