Blue Liquid, Black Sounds, Red Display cover art

Shogun Assassins are a Father and Son Extermination Hit Squad from Copenhagen, Denmark.

OK a little humour there for our Lone Wolf and Baby Cart fans which is what this brilliant band are named after.

Despite the name of a legendary gory Japanese Martial Arts Movie dubbed and spliced by the Yanks - Shogun Assassins are a superb and sublime cool Psych Rock/Blues/Stoner Rock Power Trio focusing on great bands of the 60s/70s but adding a modern cool Hard Rock/Stoner Rock vibe.

Check Out Their superb in-depth info for more info. All you need to these Danish Rockers know how to Rock with a big capital ROCK!!!

They have just released their superb 1st professional release - "Blue Liquid, Black Sounds, Red Display" - A  3 song and 13 minute blast of out-there Psych/Stoner Rock riffs with a great blues energy driving it all the way through.

The EP's Production was handled by Johan Lei Gellett (Baby Woodrose, The Good The Bad etc.) and it was mastered by Alex Saltz (Roky Erickson, The Raconteurs etc.).

So you know these guys fucking rock with talent like that handling Producing and Mastering duties. And it shows. Production is superb.

I normally focus on heavier vibes but its always great once in a while to publish a band with less heavier and demonic overtones. Summer is almost upon us and this is the perfect soundtrack for long summer nights coming up.

Just put this on your CD Player and chill out to the tones of some brilliant Shogun Assassins. Full of cool riffs and dream-like vocals to match. This is a masterful EP from a great band.

Standout track has to be Roadhouse Rumble. A nod to classic bands of the 60's and 70's with a great Stoner/Blues Rock driving it through.

So headover to BandCamp right now and buy this on BandCamp Pay Anything You Want Type Deal. The BandCamp Page has Physical Copies as well.

Highly Recommended.
