Sound samples can be heard here.

In a recent update Stell commented: "The Shotgun Suicides is a complete death metal project. It's got a lot of early 90's metal influences like DISMEMBER, CARCASS, SENTENCED, GRAVE, PESTILENCE, IMPALED NAZARENE, DARKTHRONE, AUTOPSY, DEATH, KREATOR, EDGE OF SANITY, ENTOMBED etc... the metal music I grew up with. The stuff that was going on before metal-core ruled the world."

"We've also incorporated a bit of the classic 'chainsaw guitar tone' made famous by Swedish death metal pioneers Entombed, CARNAGE, Dismember, etc. into our guitar sound. We've blended a modern high gain guitar tone with that old school chainsaw sound, and the end result is pretty damn cool."

"Many of the riffs on the album were originally intended for Enforsaken, so I think fans of that band will probably enjoy what they hear in this new project. It's basically in the vein of Enforsaken with a little less melody, and a little more brutality. Straight up, to the point, death metal." "
