Hailing from Saskatoon in the heart of the Canadian prairies, Shooting Guns work to fortify the heavy end of the psychedelic spectrum. Haunting the foggy moor between pulse-riding kraut-rock and Sabbath-styled doom riffage, these primal warriors go straight for the kill. The band has impressed critics far and wide with their unholy instrumental slaying. Their debut LP, Born To Deal in Magic: 1952-1976, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize in 2012. Their sophomore LP, Brotherhood of the Ram, was nominated for the 2015 Juno Metal/Hard Album of the Year and the Polaris Music Prize.
EasyRider Records is proud to partner up with Shooting Guns and Cobraside to release an exclusive to vinyl version of their 2013 full length LP Brotherhood Of The Ram. For the band's distinct sound, it's as if Pink Floyd had a baby that was into heavy rock, (essentially keeping that stoney ethereal landscape that is cinematic and psychedelic) at the same time as rocking it. Brotherhood of the Ram was mastered by John McBain (Monster Magnet, Carlton Melton). While the music is instrumental, the songs are still structured and heavily rhythmic complete with a plethora of melodic hooks.
