Shotgun Rodeo - "Double Barreled Vengeance"

Shotgun Rodeo - "Double Barreled Vengeance"
Heavy Metal from Norway

AIRPLAY TRACK: "The Devil on Your Shoulder"
Formed in 2008 by guitarist Don Shrediablo, Shotgun Rodeo is a hard hitting heavy metal band hailing from the city of Trondheim, Norway. Seamlessly cruising across a sea of metal styles and sub-genres, Shotgun Rodeo surpasses any premeditated sonic expectations that the listener may have had before listening. Following on from their previous EP releases ‘Dead End Massacre’ (2012) and ‘Guilty as Charged’ (2013), the band really picked up some steam with the release of their debut full-length album, ‘World Wide Genocide’ in 2015 and 'The New Standard' EP in 2016. Their second full length album 'By Hook or by Crook' followed in 2018 and was highly praised by international press and magazines. Labeled as a band that is both nostalgic and forward thinking, Shotgun Rodeo is a band that will appeal to many different listeners from the metal world. Never afraid the push the boundries, the band are now gearing up to release their third full length album, 'Double Barreled Vengeance'. The diversity and technical proficiency of the album’s 11 tracks takes Shotgun Rodeo's sound even further then previous releases. It’s an interesting combination of styles which seems wayward upon first inspection, but overall their sound is incredibly methodical, and it’s this vast range of influence and Shotgun Rodeo’s clear knowledge and love for metal heritage that makes it work. At times, ‘Double Barreled Vengeance’ feels like a release that could have been released in the late 80's metal heyday, but it could equally feel at home with along the likes of modern metal bands as Lamb Of God and Avenged Sevenfold.
