AMBASSADOR GUN — previously known as A SECOND FROM THE SURFACE — released their album When In Hell in August of 2009 on their own label, Pangea Recordings, which was immediately picked up for national distribution via Relapse Records. The belligerent trio expel a thunderous, angst-ridden, cross-genre stampede of energy, combining elements of Slayer, Nasum, Cattle Decapitation, Mastodon and more.

“Loud and almost overly-aggressive, Ambassador Gun push the borders just enough to cause tension but relent at just the right moments.” – Exclaim! Magazine

“Making sure there’s plenty of emphasis on the ‘core end of their grindcore, Minneapolis’ Ambassador Gun follow in Nasum’s footsteps through creating a racket that’s as visceral as it is volatile, and shot through with a punkish snarl.” 4/5 – Kerrang Magazine

“…When In Hell is a whirlwind, but it’s not as pummeling as Mumakil, as blistering as Nasum, as raw as Insect Warfare or Magrudergrind, nor as grind as any of those. It incorporates its outside influences towards streamlining grind’s abrasive tendencies, making the Ambassador’s music more immediately palatable than any of those bands listed above.” –
