The Skinny: Minnesota-based grind outfit Ambassador Gun have signed with Prosthetic Records. “We are fucking psyched to be a part of the Prosthetic roster,” stated the band. “This is a reputable and integral label in heavy music with amazing bands, and we’re grateful for the opportunity.” Just above you can check out Ambassador Gun by streaming or downloading the track “Wounded Knee” off of their forthcoming Prosthetic debut – a mix of grindcore with death metal-infused thrash, blended with some punk and crust elements.
Ambassador Gun, whose name stems from a certain style of sunglasses for pilots, was formed by high school buddies Tim Sieler and Luke Olson. After having both played in similar punk and metal bands throughout the mid-’90s, the pair relocated to Minnesota in 2000. “From there,” Olson recalls, “we started to write a lot of psychedelic, experimental metal in the vein of Neurosis and Today Is The Day and somehow blended it with the stylings of Slayer and old-school Hatebreed.”
