Hear the Heavy, Scuzzy NWOBHM Sounds of ZONE TROOPER “Shoot the Sun Down”

If you’re looking for rocking heavy metal that feels like it would be at home in the Wild West, look no further than the nation’s sleeze rock capital, Portland. Today I’m calling all fans of NWOBHM to watch the debut music video from ZONE TROOPER for their single “Shoot the Sun Down”! It’s raw and lo-fi, heavy and scuzzy, and it’s reminding me of why back when I was a drinker that city inspired pure debauchery from my inner demons. This is the kind of song that I’d be head banging and chucking cans of beer to. ZONE TROOPER’s debut release, a 5-song mini-LP, is out now via Black Water Records — pick it up here. So slide into your most worn-in leathers, shake your mane out, and hit play on our premiere of ZONE TROOPER “Shoot the Sun Down” here:

A Pale rider? Or an angel unchained? ZONE TROOPER rides forth on a New Wave of Northwest Heavy Metal, a cosmic trail from the desert plains to the edge of the world, a mission to rock like wasteland thunder.

The proof is in the music video for “Shoot the Sundown”, in which some notable Portland deviants appear to rock, shoot guns, and smoke cigarettes in the wasteland.
