Formed in 2008, Shotgun Rodeo are a four piece 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. The band don’t like to be labeled as one genre, but if held at gunpoint they would refer to themselves as ‘Heavy Metal on Steroids’. 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. These were 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 boundaries, the band are now gearing up to release their third full length album, ‘Double Barrelled Vengeance’ in September 2020. 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. Lead singer Nino sat this one out (Dad duties) and made way for Katy Scary to take up the mantel and the band are really happy with the results.
