ELECTRIC EEL SHOCK, the Japanese metal, classic rock, and punk trio, whose music and stage shows are a wild, outrageous, and high energy filled celebration of the guitar, loud music, and a catchy chorus, are back.
The band - Aki Morimoto (guitar/vocals ), Kazuto Maekawa (bass ), and Tomoharu ‘Gian’ Ito (drums ), who sometimes only wears a sock on stage to cover his manhood! - play the Róisín Dubh's upstairs bar on Thursday February 14 at 8pm.
Going strong for 25 years, EES have been called "nothing short of awesome” by Mastodon's Brent Hinds; Kerrang! described their music as "mixing dark fuzzy stoner rock riffs with classic rock sensibilities and addictive song-writing hooks"; Metro said they "put on a show that can be equally enjoyed by metal’s fanatics and its detractors...it’s a complete entertainment package.”
EES have also released numerous albums, such as Beat Me, Transworld Ultra Rock, and Live Around The World vol.1, which have earned them comparisons to Queens Of The Stoneage, AC/DC, and Black Sabbath.
