Electric Eel Shock
"Mixing dark fuzzy stoner rock riffs with classic rock sensibilities and addictive song-writing hooks, EES occupy the gaping void somewhere between Queens Of The Stoneage, AC/DC and Black Sabbath." Kerrang
"You’d have to be the most miserable of metal purists or the ultimate elitist trend follower not to allow yourself to simply enjoy this band..." Classic Rock
"EES are nothing short of awesome" - Brent Hinds (Mastodon)
EES left their native Japan in 1999 to see what they could make of America and they have been on a near constant world tour ever since. played SXSW2002,2003,2005, & Headlining a stage at the prestigious Roskilde Festival in Denmark was a key early event for the band. By 2004 EES had toured 27 countries around the world and they decided it was about time to release an album: "GO EUROPE!" became the first commercially available EES release and the band performed at 30 European Summer Festivals.
Follow up album "BEAT ME"(2005) & "TRANSWORLD ULTRA ROCK"(2007) was recorded in Holland with legendary producer Attie Bauw (Judas Priest, Scorpions, Bootsy Collins etc). These 2 albums achieved much critical acclaim from press and fans alike and EES continued to conquer the international musical scene step by step throughout 2005 and 2008 adding Australia and parts of Asia to their widening travels.
