"SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF DENMARK"
The famous quote by William Shakespeare should however read ”Something Is Rockin’ in The State of Denmark”.
The Danish band Shotgun Revolution is like a musical bon-fire. Comin’ straight at you right out of Copenhagen with a distinct sound inspired by classic bands like Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC & Guns N Roses, but with a twist. Put together by lead guitarist, writer and producer Martin Frank, whose vision was to create a band able to raise the bar of Danish rock music worldwide.
The band released their debut album “Join The Revolution” to great critical acclaim both locally & internationally back in 2010. The album was co-produced by renowned American Grammy Award winner Flemming Rasmussen.
Mr. Rasmussen made his reputation producing some of the finest work with American heavy metal band Metallica. Album titles like ”...And Justice For All”, ”Master Of Puppets” and ”Ride The Lightning” are considered some of the best work by Metallica.
In spring 2012 Shotgun Revolution released their 2nd. album “The Legacy Of Childhood Dreams” which was mastered by the legendary master engineer George Marino, who more or less mastered all the rock albums you love (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Guns’N’Roses and the list goes on & on) and Flemming Rasmussen was co-producing again. The album was very well received by the Danish music press and drew great reviews.
Now the best songs from the 2 albums have been put together for Shotgun Revolutions first pan European album. The album will drop late May 2013.
Europe can look forward to hearing one of the best Danish hard rock bands, and listening to this release will make you understand why this band could be very successful, but remember, where the band really makes a difference is when they play live.
The band has toured extensively on the Danish club scene and have been playing some of the biggest festivals, and they are known for sweeping their audience away with their dazzling energy with a high musical level which ignites the band on the stage and spreads their sound and energy beyond. As a well-known rock critic puts it: "Shotgun plays f**kin’ competent and with a determination that could occupy smaller nations on time."
Shotgun Revolution has also perfomed live outside Denmark, including shows at legendary venues as "Bi Nuu" in Berlin, "Barfly" in Camden, London and "Whiskey A Go Go" in LA.
Right now they continue playing the Danish live scene, which so far has included a warm-up gig for Slash, when he visited Denmark in February 2013. They have also just opened Copenhagen's new rock club "High Voltage" with a great concert and will be on stage at the Nordic Noise Festival in Copenhagen late May.
During this summer they will be playing some of the best festivals finishing off with a performance at the Skanderborg Festival, before they embark on their autumn and winter tour.
Shotgun Revolution surely is a world class act in the making and is getting ready to take on the world of rock’n’roll – R u ready for a shot of Shotgun..!!
