Shock Troopers were born in 2001 with Stefano on the drums, Fabrizio"METAL-PIG" on guitar, Mario on bass, Vincenzo on Vocals. They started playing punk rock music mainly influenced by Misfits, Ramones & Motorhead. In 2002 the band, after some little gigs in Palermo, Claudia became the new bass player and Mario was playing rhythm guitar. So, Shock Troopers started to sound like bands as DRI, SOD, old Agnostic Front and Suicidal Tendencies in the purest, oldest 80's crossover style! Later Luigi (former Feccia Tricolore's drummer) has come into the band with Fabietto (former Sonny Corleone's member) as the new bass player in place of Claudia. This line up has gone on for about two years in which the band has played in several gigs in Palermo supporting other Sicilian and Italian bands, like WOPTIME, SONNY CORLEONE, FECCIA TRICOLORE, SKRUIGNERS, ROTTEN BOYS, THE KRUSHERS. In February 2004 the band recorded its first self produced demoCD, entitled "Bad Reality". This demo CD has got very good reviews on some Italian HC and Metal webzines. In 2005 Luigi left the band and was temporarly substituted by Morgan, but this change didn't achieve good upshots. So Giorgio was called to become the new definitive drummer of the band. During the summer of the same year Fabietto left Sicily and the band too. Andrea (bass) is the latest new member of the family. They were supporting HATEWORK and others… Brand new tracks, faster and louder than ever, were recorded at Circle Of Power Studios (Pa) during June 2006 and the band self produced their debut album "Shock Troopers" in 2007. At the beginning of 2008 they made a deal with Punishment 18 Records for the reissue of the debut album self titled. In March 2008 the band left Sicily for its first tour all around Italy with Haemophagus! In december 2009 they played with Violator in Brescia.
