Slapshock is the thunderous sound of Filipino rock/ metal – Composed of five diversely skilled musicians, the band was forged in the musically rich landscape of the University of the Philippines in 1997. Slapshock emerged during the heyday of rap-metal in the USA and in the Philippines, becoming a pioneer of the movement and being responsible for its rise. While some would be in danger of being pegged in one genre, the band has stayed put in Pinoy Rock’s consciousness for two decades now because of their evolving but always explosive signature sound. Slapshock draws you in with a concord of unforgettable and haunting melodies, only to have your senses assaulted with ragged and raw power.

Playing in the trenches of pioneering rock club Mayric’s and Club Dredd, and inciting musical mayhem during college events helped Slapshock grab the audience’s attention and the recording industry. The band was signed by EMI Philippine in 1998 which resulted in their first platinum selling album 4th Degree Burn. This album birthed many cult favourite tracks like Agent Orange which became the rock anthem of the youth during that time and introduced Slapshock to the underground and commercial scene.

The band just reached a milestone in their career as they are celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2017. They released their latest album ATAKE in 2017 as well under their own label Alley Road Records.

Slapshock has collected a number of awards throughout their career, including being consistent winners of the NU 107 Rock Awards. The recognition continued as the band received the award for Rock Artist of the Year at the 2010 PMPC Star Awards for Music. They were also awarded Favourite MYX Live Performance at the MYX Awards 2011 the following year.
