The story of a decade...and Shylock are back with their new album called “RockBuster”.
The first step into business was done back in 2000 when Shylock was featured on the German Rock Hard sampler “Unerhört” with the debut song “Can’t Let U Go”. Just a few months later they finally found a label partner and released their self-titled album.
The second release was called “Pyronized”, and the four-piece drew their attention to the audience due to the quality of songs and numerous tour and live activities with bands such as Bonfire, Axxis, Shakra, Roger Chapmann, U.D.O., Primal Fear, Doro, etc.
“Welcome To Illusion” is the title of their third album. Rami Ali, well known drummer of Frontline/ Evidence One and State Of Rock, contributed all drum tracks at the studio. This production was released in Europe, Russia and finally in Brasil. Besides the impressive sound, “Welcome To Illusion” turned out to be three times ‘album of the month’ in different online and print magazines.
Later, back in November 2004, Shylock released the song “Farewell” on MTM Music’s 10th anniversary sampler. This song was exclusively written for world known soccer star Thomas “Icke” Hässler. Thomas invited the band to perform his song at his farewell game at Cologne RheinEnergieStadion. About 20.000 people watched the gig live in the stadium and over 1.000.000 people even watched the event at TV.
During the song-writing and pre-production session for “Devotion”, Shylock performed some more shows, e.g. at Bayern 3 radio’s Badetour with Right Said Fred, Adler’s Appetite (Ex Guns ’n’ Roses), and they supported Bonfire on their “Double X” tour in Germany and Spain.
Right after the release of “Devotion” the band started with the production for the fifth album called “RockBuster”.
With Ondrej Hurbanic, they finally found a suitable producer to give the songs power and a quite modern sound. “Rockbuster” contains 11 powerful songs and a fabulous cover version of Timex Social Club’s world-wide known track “Rumours”.
In December, 2009 Shylock released a new song on the fan CD of German’s soccer club „1. FC Nürnberg”.
