Shotgun Messiah were a 1980s Glam metal band originally from Sweden, they went on to dabble in Industrial rock music during the early to mid 1990s.

First Era, 1985-1991:
The band previously went under the name "Kingpin" while they played in Sweden, recording the album Welcome To Bop City, the line-up featured Zinny J. Zan (vocals), Tim Skld (going by "Tim Tim") (bass), Harry K. Cody (guitar) and Stixx (drums). This would become the original line-up of Shotgun Messiah as the band changed their name and relocated to Los Angeles, California hungry for more success. The album they released under the "Cools" name was re-recorded and released as Shotgun Messiah's self-titled debut album, Shotgun Messiah. The style of this album was Glam metal typical of early 1980s American bands, in the vein of Mtley Cre and Ratt.

Second Era, 1991-1993:
Soon after this, frontman Zinny J. Zan departed, leaving Tim Skld to take over vocal duties for the band, Shotgun Messiah drafted in American bassist, Bobby Lycon to fill Skld's former position. This would prove to be the band's most successful era. In 1991, the band's follow up album Second Coming was released, spawning their most famous hit "Heartbreak Blvd". Stylistically, due to Skld's less conventional singing style, this era saw the band playing Sleaze glam-styled hard rock, closer to Guns N' Roses and Faster Pussycat than their previous effort.

A punk rock influence was prevalent during this period. The band released I Want More, an EP featuring cover versions of songs by the Ramones, the Stooges and the New York Dolls, during this time, they were also known to cover the Sex Pistols live.

Third Era, 1993:
1993 proved to be the final year for the band, Harry K. Cody and Tim Skld were left as the only members of Shotgun Messiah, and created what would be the last Shotgun Messiah album Violent New Breed, this album is significantly different from the previous efforts as it focused heavily on Industrial rock stylings, bringing in live players for the Violent New Breed tour. Soon after the band split permanently, citing artistic differences as the reason.

After Shotgun Messiah, Tim Skld's acitivies have been the most notable, building on the Industrial rock of the band's last album Violent New Breed, with a solo album (entitled Skld), before joining bands such as KMFDM, MDFMK and the Newlydeads (with Taime Downe of Faster Pussycat). Currently Skld is playing guitar and bass for the band Marilyn Manson.

Zinny J. Zan has also released a solo album, and two albums with his new band "Zan Clan".

-Tim Skold.
-Harry K. Cody.
-Bobby Lycon.
