Load The Shotgun – SHOTGUN MESSIAH

Load The Shotgun – SHOTGUN MESSIAH

Shotgun Messiah started out in life known as Kingpin in their Swedish homeland and their CD Welcome To Bop City from 1988 gained them a great following and fanbase there.  They opted to shift their operations to the late 80’s glam scene of Los Angeles in search of fortune and fame that never came.  Upon their arrival, the Kingpin moniker was abandoned and the Welcome to Bop City recording re-worked and re-released under the new heading…

The focus this week being on Rock Trio’s on the Decibel Geek Podcast, I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to take a moment and introduce some of the folks to a metal pioneer that never hit the big time in North America, one of the most important bands that you’ve probably never heard before. Back in October 2011 I had heard about Saxon’s first concert in Canada in over twenty years. Not being…
