Shotgun Messiah was a Swedish glam band that started off as a band called "Kingpin" back in the mid 1980's.  In fact, they release a single album as Kingpin called Welcome to Bop City, which after they moved to Hollywood and changed their name to Shotgun Messiah, became their 1989 debut release.

By 1991, vocalist Zinny Zan had left the band, and bassist Tim Skold handled vocals for the bands 1991 release, Second Coming (1991).  This album did not do as well as their debut, but has been argued by many as being more glam and a better album than their original (after all, it did feature the hit song "Heartbreak Boulevard").  The band had two more releases in 1992 and 1993.  Violent New Breed was an album that saw the band go into a more industrial rock direction, whereas I Want More was a collection of cover tunes by bands such as The Ramones, The Stooges, and the New York Dolls.

As time has gone on and the members of Shotgun Messiah have went their own ways, it is notable that Tim Skold could be found with Marilyn Manson for a time, and Zinny Zan in a band called "Zan Clan".  At the time of this writing, the Shotgun Messiah Discography was as follows:

  • 1989: Shotgun Messiah
  • 1991: Second Coming
  • 1992: I Want More
  • 1993: Violent New Breed
