THE SHRINE are a pool-skating, acid-eating, rip-roaring trio whose "Psychedelic Violence Rock and Roll" will melt your face off! The bitchin' band's bad-ass new record Primitive Blast fuses "the wilder riffs of your Dad's Thin Lizzy and Black Sabbath LPs" with "the fury of a punk show getting busted by the cops" and is so wild-eyed and surly that it has to be heard to be believed!! Primitive Blast delivers a crossover bitch slap of gargantuan proportions that instantaneously announces THE SHRINE as the most devil-may-care gang of brothers to soil the streets of LA since DLR and EVH played The Troubadour. The band transcends labels like "hard rock", "punk" and "heavy metal" and renders those terms obsolete! Recorded on vintage gear and reel-to-reel tape through mountainous Marshall stacks, Primitive Blast is the perfect soundtrack to cracking your skull skating your neighbor's empty pool (or to any other debaucherous gathering of longhairs), delivering nine blasts of searing guitar, spazzed-out drums and shook up bass lines that seriously signal THE SHRINE as a ticking time bomb that's about to EXPLODE. Come get some!!
