Gypsy punk metal group, Kultur Shock, was founded by vocalist and Serbian rock star Srdjan “Gino” Yevdjevic in 1996. Yevdjevic moved from war torn Sarajevo to the United States in the 1990s, and while the group now calls Seattle home, Kultur Shock has a loyal following in Eastern Europe and is currently touring for their 25th anniversary. After a hiatus during COVID, they recently completed a successful tour of Europe and the Balkan countries in July, 2022.
Kultur Shock is hugely influential to a whole genre of rock music that combines experimentalism with heart pounding punk rock. With sounds reminiscent of Gogol Bordello, System of a Down, Dubioza Kolektiv, Manu Chao, The Pogues, and Gang of Four, Kultur Shock continues to bend genres and mix international sounds full of energy, irreverence, lyricism, and, yes, punk metal.
