Shooting Guns are hard at work fortifying the heavy end of the musical spectrum. They haunt the foggy moor between Sabbath-styled doom riffery and heavy, textural space rock. Centered around elephantine riffs, these delay-soaked songs rumble and hiss with analog synth-conjurings.
The sonic decadence is restrained only by structurally minimalist compositions ever driven by savage drumming and finely distilled, groove-locked bass. Hypnotic patterns evolve over time in mutating timbres and subtly shifted grooves, while the core of the songs remain dead simple, and the spinal cords of the audience nod in accordance.
As a result of this genius concoction of musical stylings, the band's debut LP, was even nominated for the prestigious Canadian Polaris Music Prize in 2012. Having showcased at the Halifax Pop Explosion, NXNE, and Sled Island Music Festivals, the band is pleasantly surprised to find that their spectacle is rapidly attracting a cult of barbarian metal-heads, indie hipsters, Neanderthals, and nerds.
