about

Following the successful release of “Captain’s Log”, ShamRocks are back with an EP titled “Ye Olde Chariot”!

On it, you will find 17.5 minutes of honest-to-goodness celtic punk / Stout Rock. The record includes a lyrical ballad based on a classic Irish poem, an all-time favorite folk song frankensteined into an industrial metal number, and a few other surprises to keep you guessing what’s next.

“Ye Olde Chariot” sets out to show just how much musical diversity ShamRocks can muster. By embracing our differences, we tap into our creative side and dial it up to eleven - to entertain, and to encourage others to experiment. This EP is our way of saying, whatever’s happening in your life, you can always take a moment to relax and have fun!

Track Name: Roll The Old Chariot
Oh, we'd be alright if the wind was in our sails
We'd be alright if the wind was in our sails
We'd be alright if the wind was in our sails
And we'll all hang on behind...

And we'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the golden chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
And we'll all hang on behind!

Oh, we'd be alright if we make it round The Horn
We'd be alright if we make it round The Horn
We'd be alright if we make it round The Horn
And we'll all hang on behind...

And we'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the golden chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
And we'll all hang on behind!

And another pint of stout wouldn't do us any harm
And another pint of stout wouldn't do us any harm
Oh, another pint of stout wouldn't do us any harm
And we'll all hang on behind...

And we'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the golden chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
And we'll all hang on behind!

And a night on the town wouldn't do us any harm
A night on the town wouldn't do us any harm
Oh, a night on the town wouldn't do us any harm
And we'll all hang on behind...

And we'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the golden chariot along!
We'll ro-o-oll the old chariot along!
And we'll all hang on behind!
Track Name: Пияка-Гультяй
При дорозі в самім серці лісу
Я знайшов чарівний трунок
Не вагався ані миті
Випив сам, покликав друзів
Перший - Ваня - прихопив горілки
Другий - Клаус - частував нас пивом
Та як перейшли ми до відьомського зілля
Почалася, курво люта, справжня маячня

Гоп, гоп, гоп!
Я пияка-гультяй!
Чарівну оковиту у чарки наливай!
Гоп, гоп, гоп!
В березовім гайочку
До самого ранку в колі гоцай і стрибай!

Все забув тієї ночі
Що зробив, що мав вчинити
Та тепер найважливіше
Не спинятися ні миті
Відблиски варти лісової
Рев і регіт, пісні, зойки, лайка, дикий крик
Весело палають дві сусідські ферми
З-під землі мерці почують нас!

Гоп, гоп, гоп!
Я пияка-гультяй!
Чарівну оковиту у чарки наливай!
Гоп, гоп, гоп!
В березовім гайочку
До самого ранку в колі гоцай і стрибай!
Track Name: Kiltartan Cross
I know that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate
Those that I guard I do not love.

My country is Kiltartan Cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan’s poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before.

Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public man, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;

I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life (and) this death.

I know that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate
Those that I guard I do not love.
