Bio: SHOCKLORE began as a group of friends playing in various bands both together and seperately during the height of the 1980's Punk Rock, Thrash and Speed Metal scenes in the South Bay, Southern California.

 From 1990-2020 SHOCKLORE has been: Jim Fuentes/Guitar, Bass and Vocals, Eric Wood/Guitar & , Mark Luther/Drums/Lead Vocals, Lyricist with other Guitarist friends Craig Davis and Charles (Chuck) Morel contributing. 

When they formed their goal was to put together a combination of Hardcore music using all of their best, combined influences. The result was 21 Driving, Face melting, and Provocative tunes that would stand the test of time and be as relevant today as the day were written. Though SHOCKLORE line ups have morphed and varied over the years, but the concept has not. 

“SHOCK”: To provoke a sudden upsetting or surprising event or experience. To invoke a feeling of disturbed surprise.

“LORE”: a body of traditions and knowledge on a subject or held by a particular group, typically passed from person to person by word of mouth

Beginning in 2021 SHOCKLORE’s line up again included Charles Morel briefly (Guitar on Static Audacity - 01/01/21), but has since settled into a more congruent line up:

Jim Fuentes/Guitar & Bass,

Mark Luther/Drums/Vocals/Lyricist,

James Harned (Formerly of FULL SIZE)/Lead Vocals/Lyricist.

 With the intensity and raw power of their latest release “Soiled Mask” on 05/05/21, it is clear SHOCKLORE has lost none of their purpose or bite. SHOCKLORE’s focus going forward is writing, recording and producing another Full Length LP to again combine their collective influences and many years of friendship to create VOL 2.


Influences: S.O.D., Slayer, Rudimentary Peni, D.R.I., Corrosion Of Conformity, Discharge, Metallica, Circle Jerks, Fugazi, Dayglo Abortions, Pantera, RKL, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, and many more.

Brecon Indie Reviews- SHOCKLORE VOL1


@BreconIndie @rubberclowncar #BreconIndie #Consultant #Team #Genius @rubberclowncar #RT “Fans of thrash and hardcore should like this one. Crisp production (especially on the drums).... Vocals hold back at points where other bands may have resorted to sheer bombast to get their point across, which is refreshing.” Shocklore Will If like me you happen to have been lucky enough to have been born & raised in the generation where X marks the spot then Will by Shocklore will most definitely strike a ( power ) chord in your heart. Kicking off with fretwork so frighteningly fantastic it’d give anything Dave Mustaine managed to muster et ‘ Rust in Peace ‘ era Megadeth a right royal run for his Benjamin’s. All the while being driven by Fugazi esque lo fi bass & fuzz Unafraid & unabashedly accompanied by a drum beat driven by lashings of the ol double kick Will then manifests itself into something all aficionados of Black Flag & Sir Henry of Rollins WILL all appreciate. A definite devil horn from me in the direction of Shocklore. I can say for this band Generation X most definitely WILL mark the spot. Falling On the subject of Fugazi let’s now move on to Falling also by Shockwave & taken from their recently released Shocklore Vol 1 ( remastered ) record this tune is pure stoner rock & DC Hardcore inspired awesomeness. Driven by the same double kick drum that Shocklore seem to have made a calling card of their post industrial post hardcore lo fi scuzzy sound. This tune literally grabs you by the scruff of the neck & beats you into submission with a soundtrack of Melvins / Black Flag / Fugazi infused musical chaos. What’s My Genre ( Bonus Track ) Fans of Pissed Jeans will certainly appreciate this little gem of a tune billed as a bonus track on the Shocklore Vol1 record. As brutal as the aforementioned noise core rockers above this track as all the Shocklore album is chaos set to music. If you actually have the stamina to get to this track then you will surely be rewarded. SHOCKLORE VOL 1 - Album Overview ...if you are a Generation Xer or actually anyone else who would consider themselves a fan of alternative rock then Shocklore Vol 1 ( remastered ) is definitely a record that’s gonna get you dusting off your converse before heading down to the skate park cos hell if you’re gonna have a midlife crisis you might as well do it in style & this record most certainly does that. A must for fans of Megadeth , Melvins , Black Flag & Henry Rollins , Dead Kennedys , Master of Puppets era Metallica , Bleach era Nirvana and Fugazi. Shit with bands like Shocklore around there might just be some hope for music yet.......8/10
