05 - Shame 18 Video Samples
Originally formed in 2007, but things really started to happen for Shame 18 in 2009 when the guys regrouped after along break.
"They started writing lots of new songs but had difficulties in finding a singer, but after a while Ricky & Adam decided to test Chris on vocals and that worked perfectly, Chris was now the band’s singer/guitarist, Ricky on drums & Adam on bass. They recorded the demo ”Dead eyes are forever gone” in Staffanstorp March 13-14th 2010 with Martin Sweet and Calle Fäldt as producers. In may, the band found a second guitarist, Simon, who seems to fit into the band really well!"
All four tracks on display here are of a very high quality, with Nightmare on Elm Street ode Never Sleep Again and Devil In Me seeming to be the best of the bunch. The band counts the likes of HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, W.A.S.P., DEATHSTARS, WEDNESDAY 13, CELINE DION, MOTÖRHEAD, among their influences, which explains their dirty sleazy sound.
These guys have the potential to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Hardcore Superstar, Crashdiet and New Generation Superstars and achieve a decent amount of international success.
After hearing the quality if the four songs on display here I really can’t wait to hear the debut album!
