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.
