Shotgun Messiah - Second Coming: The first five songs and the last song of this album transcend the boundaries or rock music, the lyrics are simple but smart and there are some guitar solos that would make Sir Jimi blush. The rest of the album, however, can be best described as lacking in lyrics. The songs start of well but then the guy runs out of things to say and tries to fill the void by repeating chorus's again and again and again. Still, a good buy!

Full-throttled dose of high-energy heavy duty rock & roll from this Swedish band's second effort. Not quite as good as their self-titled debut CD - but still decent. For those of you who may not remember, before the band recorded 'Second Coming', Shotgun's lead vocalist Zinny J. San exited the group only to have the vocal duties left to bassist Tim Skold. The major shift change seemed to have worked rather well. Key tracks are "Sexdrugsrockn'roll", the awesome "Nobody's Home", "Ride The Storm" and their raucous cover of the New York Doll's "Babylon". 'Second Coming' offers it's listener(s) some powerful chops, fairly well-written songs and a bit of spontaneity. Overall, not a bad find.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must have 9 April 2003
By Ken Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Do yourself a huge favor and pick up this CD. Any fan of guitar driven rock and roll will love this offering from Shotgun Messiah. A band that starts their CD off with a song entitled "Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll" is a band for me. Shotgun Messiah's guitarist, Harry Cody, can deliver the goods as good as, and or, better than most of his contemporaries that enjoyed way more success than he. He should be, without a doubt, herald in the same catagory as Guitar Gods like George Lynch, Vivian Campbell, Nuno Bettencourt, etc, etc. Bold statement I know, but just listen to him shred on this CD and you too will agree. I think everyone has some sleeper CDs in their collection that they love but didn't get mass attention. This is one of those. It's also one of those CDs that you can listen to over and over again and it still sends chills up your spine everytime. The song "Heartbreak Blvd." received some commercial air play, but that was about all the attention this release was given. Too bad, because it's not the best song on the CD. The songs are hard and heavy (with a few slow ones) but still possess strong melodies that is missing from a lot of hard rock. You will be able to rock out and still sing to the songs at the same time. "Second Coming" will completely satisfy the most die hard, hard rock fan. Get it, crank it, love it. Trust me.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD is the Best From the Best... 15 Nov. 1999
By rebuz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been A Shotgun Messiah fan since 88'. I first caught them on MTV doing "shout it out" , and when I saw that video, I just knew they would be great. There music has changed a bit on each of there albums. Shotgun messiah (is heavy metal GLAM rock) , Second coming ( is just hard rock and there best album), I want more ( 5 cd tracks, and redoing The Ramones 53rd and 3rd a dard find.) Violent New Breed (Very industrial metal extremely HEAVY) Then they broke up. But Tim Skold relaesed His own album called (SKOLD) and now he is in KMFDM.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is how music should sound! 10 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Thank you Tim Skold and Hary Cody, you have enlightened me and given me many special moments with your music. THE MUSIC IS AWESOME and Im really suprised that these two guys arent sitting in a studio writing hit music today for Britney like Max Martin (another Swedish hardrocker) does. Cause the reason for me saying so is that Tim Skold and Harry Cody is probably two of the most talented songwriters around.
Nobody can call themself a true Hardrocker unless they heard about Shotgun Messiah....
Thank god Tim SKold got something going on with Marilyn Manson...so I look forward to that Marilyn Record that will be released soon...
What ever happend to Harry Cody? I wanna hear his new songs....Cody you gotta let us fans hear your music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Truely a natural high 16 Sept. 1998
By Nathanael D. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tim was the bassist on the first record, but why they didn't start him out as vocalist, I'll never know. He defines Shotgun Messiah's sound. His voice is so heavy and it runs oh so smooth over Cody's shredding rifs. In the short time they had together, they created one of my favorite records. Catch Skold now with KMFDM on "Anarchy", obviously my favorite track on the "Symbols" album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Swedish hard rock classic - finally reissued 22 Jun. 2015
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Originally released in 1991, Second Coming is the – you guessed it – second album from Swedish glam metal band Shotgun Messiah. The band, which was more or less Sweden’s answer to the Hollywood hair metal scene, made a major splash with their self-titled 1989 debut, but the departure of frontman Zinny Zan forced them to change things up a bit. Tim Skold handed bass duties off to newcomer Bobby Lycon and took over on vocals.

Lineup changes aside, Shotgun Messiah’s hard hitting (and hard partying) sound was still very much in place on Second Coming. They come on strong here, like a more metallic L.A. Guns. Beneath the crunching guitars and sleazy twang these songs are still very melodic, though they’re a far cry from the band’s more polished countrymen in Europe and Treat. Skold sounds great on vocals, and is a bit less abrasive than Zan was. He nails the sleaze rock sound perfectly, and has the kind of charisma to make songs like “Sexdrugsrockn’roll” and “Heartbreak Blvd.” impossible to resist. The band even manages to make the obligatory power ballad something special with “Living Without You.” The surprise favorite on Second Coming has to be the band’s raucous cover of the New York Dolls hit “Babylon,” which sounds like it was written just for Shotgun Messiah.

Shotgun Messiah followed Second Coming in 1992 with the I Want More EP before changing directions dramatically with the industrial rock Violent New Breed in 1993. The grunge takeover probably would have put an end to the band’s party rocking days anyway.

Second Coming remains a totally rocking, totally fun album from a band that really should have had a higher profile at the time. Shotgun Messiah showed the world that Sweden’s rock scene had more to offer than just Europe, and paved the way for sleaze rock revivalists like Hardcore Superstar and Crashdiet. If you’re a die-hard fan of the ‘80s hard rock/glam metal/hair metal sound, this is an album you’ll want to get your hands on, especially now that it has been reissued.

Edition Notes: Divebomb reissued Second Coming (as well as the Shotgun Messiah debut) earlier this year. Their reissue features newly remastered audio and a booklet that’s loaded with band history, lyrics and vintage photos and press material. There are no bonus tracks, but just having this long out of print album back in fans’ hands – and sounding better than ever – is reason to celebrate. As usual, it’s limited to 1000 copies and is not available digitally.
