Stoner/metal/heavy hard rock trio from Spain, with melodic blues-based vibes. This is the band's debut album, and it's an album that makes the band stand out from the pack, as these guys are more diverse than your run-of-the-mill stoner metal band.

'Already Dead' is at its core a formidable chunk of stoner rock with fiery guitar solos and catchy hard hitting music all round.

Tracks like the outstanding 'Bullet In Your Soul' shows a more blues based buoyant catchy melodic style for the band and is bloody brilliant, solid riffs and fab raw vocals with slicing melodic blues guitar work, just listen to that buzzing solo mid-way through against the bass slabs, wonderful stuff, it's also one of the albums longest songs at over seven minutes.

The full-on rocker 'W.T.O.I.L.' throws a little Metallica style riffage in with the gritty guitar attack punk posture of say Moto?rhead.

'Already Dead' is the album that Evilsen and guitarist Arikat Yusef wanted to release for a long time, the guys share so many different influences, and they really wanted all of them to surge on the album.

It goes from heavy Sabbath beats to faster punk rock energies. The album really goes through a lot of distinctive phases and styles within the rock genres, and makes it electrifying to listen to.

They even use a banjo on the song 'Sweet and Salty'!
