Editors’ Notes Incorporating blues harmonica in the spaghetti western opener “Let’s Shake Some Dust” and banjo in the gunfighting history lesson “Doc Holliday,” these Danish rockers strike a daring balance between the Wild West and modern metal on their 2013 album. They even recruit ex-Anthrax axeman Rob Caggiano to thrash through “The Hangman’s Body Count” and “Black Bart.” Imagine Danzig on a Johnny Cash bender—but with King Diamond drowning “Room 24” in Black Sabbath doom, plus a frat-rocking cover of Young the Giant’s “My Body” just for kicks.
