"Shields are Leeds’ premier (and presumably only) 'Medieval Power Rock' group, and their self-titled debut EP sounds exactly as you’d expect… This is heavy in that it sounds like it’s absolutely massive and weighs a bloody ton. This is a huge, behemoth-sounding record. However, what really makes it so good is that it manages this without being just distorted walls of sound." Croon Zine

Shields Leeds, UK

“Triumph, glory, wenches, mead, longboats, riding horseback… all in a days work for Leeds' ‘medieval power rock’ troupe SHIELDS.

The feeling you get when you hear them live is kinda like that first epic war scene you ever saw… its a bit overwhelming and bloody, but when you know the good guys are winning, its goosebumps and fist in the air there on in"

Track Name: My buddy went to Azeroth & all I got were these lousy arrows
If there's something worth fighting for
There's something in trying
Raise your Shields up and your swords

With a handful of lightning bolts
And a heart full of fire
Raise your Shields up and your swords... Higher
Track Name: Christpuncher
Storms fill the sky
One more time

Rain, crashing down
Wash me clean

Raise your glasses heathens, I propose a toast
Filled high with pride and reason, to every man and ghost
Track Name: Your name is Mudd
Last time tonight
Lay by my side
Your sleeping eyes they hold lies

Last call for all for all
Kill it

Feel this inside
Tearing, divide
This fire it burned too strong, bright

Last call for all for all
Kill it

Your name is Mudd and I'll drag you through it
Your name is Mudd and I'll drag you down
Track Name: Wolf Hungry
Sirens: Call
Silence: Gold

Fear my own
Fear my home

Searchlights: Find
Darkness: Mine

Fear my own
Fear my home
Track Name: Slubberdegullion
Fire, water
Flowing under

Misled daughter

The wicked whore

Cheating lover
Sister, brother

The wicked whore
