From the murky depths of a rough as hell fourtrack recording lurch Already Dead with some hateful, filthy hardcore that isn’t afraid to dally with crust and metal. Evil, desperate yells launch a tirade over some truly slovenly grooves and uneasy, cleanly picked guitar parts that add an unhealthy does of skin-crawling texture to an already savage mix. Whether they’re hurtling along with their pedal to the floor or have slowed down to a crawl in order to laugh at car crash victims along the way, this some truly ugly shit, and I’m willing to bet my back teeth that these kids would ruin your face in a live setting or even just a decently-recorded 7”. Awesome. One for those in the audience that get their kicks from the likes of Dystopia and Damad - five songs and some pointers on how to write a suicide note.
