The Shanks hail from the Orangeville Ontario area (Mono to be exact). They are a bass and drum duo with a completely unique sound that has to be seen as well as heard. Skordolia is a fantastic release, but even it can’t capture the power of the band live. They manage a mix of insane heaviness, melody and sheer power that you couldn’t imagine 2 people can generate. Skordolia is my favourite album/E.P. to some out of the Orangeville area recently, and that is saying a lot because there is a very fertile music scene in the area.
