The sludge rock trio from Bangalore, India, have taken buzz to the level of shaking up a hornet's nest in the heavy music scene, since the release of their singles 'Bogslime' and 'Turdspeak'. Fans and critics who aren't running away scared are calling the album (artwork, production and all) a breath of fresh, sweet, dense air that reminds you of festivals.
Praise comes from JJ Koczan (The Obelisk), who says the album 'basks in classic heavy riffage in a manner befitting the name they've given it'. Metalstorm called the album 'Relaxing stoner metal and just the right amount of sludge to keep us awake and hungry for more'
Billy Goat of Doomed & Stoned was all praise for the album and the artwork 'eight low 'n'slow tracks that know when to ramp up the intensity in a way that would surely make Sabbath smile'
The debut album, 'Stereolithic Riffalocalypse' is out worldwide on March 7th, with pre-orders starting February 1st.
The band is giving a fans a chance to take a whiff of the album with a limited-period stream on their Bandcamp page (https://shepherdrock.bandcamp.com/).

Apart from the CD's and T-shirts, the band is offering a limited edition silk screened posters of the extended album art, designed by Dangercat Studio.
