Ten songs of high-energy, classic metal with ’70s rock attitude from the streets of New York City! On their first studio album in five years, New York City’s Tower kicks out the jams with vintage metal appeal and classic rock persuasion that brings the old-school into today! The freewheeling nature of the writing and recording process helped give rise to several firsts for Tower. While their trademark vintage metal-on-’70s rock sound is still dominant, elements like thrash and doom have entered the equation. Lyrically, Shock to the System tackles political themes, personal loss and the volatility of relationships and life in general. The album features cover art from Morgan Jesse Lappin that details the feelings of isolation the pandemic brought on and the futile attempts to escape a claustrophobic and uncomfortable environment only to find the real world has changed drastically. And while the outside world continues to rear its ugly head and unending grimness, there is only one thing left to do – put on Shock to the System and turn it up to 11!
