Coming off of a hard-rocking debut album Primitive Blast released just last summer, the guys from The Shrine are back with a new single premiering on Vice’s Noisey titled “Nothing Forever.” With a determination to get in the face of all who listen, The Shrine has developed a Skater-Rock attitude, mixed with a 70′s Garage Rock sound that hits hard and doesn’t let up for a second.
Hailing from LA, The Shrine takes influences from Black Sabbath, which explains their Psychedelic, riff-heavy Rock. Named one of LA Weekly’s ”Top Los Angeles Metal Albums of 2012,” The Shrine is out to dominate the world this time with their new album Bless Off, released on Tee Pee Records on March 11th.
In the first single off of the album, “Nothing Forever” starts with heavy Black Sabbath/The Sword sounding riffs that rip open the beginning, allowing drummer Jeff Murray to build his drum fills until the song takes off into post-punk skaterdom. Noisey captured their sound perfectly, saying that “Nothing Forever” feels “just like the soundtrack to dropping into an empty pool.” Check it out for yourself and be sure to blast this one all the way to 11.
