Nordic industrial rock heroes in Raubtier have
another side in their life and this sounds
completely different. Extremely different I must
say. Pär Hulkhoff is the front man in Bourbon
Boys and as well as the vocalist in Raubtier.
The language on Raubtier's albums is 100%
Swedish and on this disc it's all in English. The
music on 'Shotguns, Trucks & Cattle' is
something like country music in a hard rock 'n'
roll style and with alcohol themes in the lyrics. Hulkhoff's
dark harsh and hoarse voice is perfect for this American country rock style. Personally
isn't something I regularly listen to, but I
love their wild and crazy attitude to life, something that is
different in today's society.
They live as they learn and do not spit into the glass if
they are served alcohol. 'Shotguns, Trucks
& Cattle' is a odd disc on our metal site, but
if you are interested in American inspired rock
music with rockabilly elements, this is definitely
something for you. I think this works best in a
narrow, smoky rock pub with a lot of drunk
hillbillies. I will keep some of the tracks in my
save folder and they are 'Hillbilly Heart', 'Rock
'n' Rollin Man' and the nice song 'Drinkin My
Woman Away'. Check 'em out on Spotify!
I will recommend this album to my
neighbor, who is a greaser and
drives old American cars in the summer time.
They will - probably - like this album a lot more than I do.
