Hailing from Saskatoon in the heart of the Canadian prairies, Shooting Guns are hard at work fortifying the heavy end of the psychedelic spectrum. Haunting the foggy moor between Sabbath-styled doom riffage and heavy pulse-riding kraut-rock these primal cuts go straight for the kill. These dudes have impressed critics 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 as well as the Polaris Music Prize. They are also on the list of Top 100 Canadian Bands of All Time as polled by CBC Radio Canada. Their debut, Born to Deal in Magic: 1952-1976 (originally released in 2011) has been long out of print and near impossible to obtain outside of their native Canada. Now in 2016, Captcha Records and Cardinal Fuzz are stoked to have it back in print for the masses. Even the folks at Vice said something nice about the SG’s, “Their live shows are a swirling haze of dope smoke, unholy light, and punishingly high volume “Neanderthal Rock” that leaves ears ringing and minds melted. And their recorded output is perfect for taking a private trip to alien worlds, where savage beasts stalk the shadows of the full moon, and rivers of bubbling green ooze spill over their banks, rendering the flooded lands charred and wasted.” Regardless if your into uppers or downers, dope or speed these instrumental doom tracks will tickle your mind with a lead feather. Shooting Guns are bound to please fans of Mötorhead, SLEEP, Thou, Early Monster Magnet and Electric Wizard.
The heavyweight vinyl for BTDIM will be on occult oxblood with black swirl, housed in a gorgeous 350g sleeve. Born to die deaf, what kind of magic are you dealing in? Turn it up loud and wish for the best.
