British Thrashers SSS Sign With EARACHE RECORDS

Earache Records has announced the signing of Liverpool, England-based thrash band SSS (a.k.a. SHORT SHARP SHOCK).

According to a press release, SSS "plays thrash in the original sense of the word. They play thrash metal, and they play it well. A bastard spawn of S.O.D. and 'Kill Em All'-era METALLICA laced with enough power, riffs and licks to sink a battleship can only mean one thing.....mayhem!"

When asked by the Stolen Youth fanzine what the best part of being a thrash band is, SSS vocalist Foxy said, "The music. It breaks down barriers of all kinds. Don't know why or how, what with today's musical tastes of glitz and glam and watered down crap. Maybe thrash is such an old dinosaur that people have forgotten it and now its new once more. It takes people by surprise when we play. Get 'em all up front , make 'em laugh, reel them in...then let rip with the truth and dish the dirt."

The close of 2006 saw the release of SSS's "Short Sharp Shock" — the debut 16-track CD and 12" wax, limited to 1,000 copies on Dead & Gone. Plans for 2007 include reissuing the SSS debut with bonus material and plenty of shows.
