Album Review: 'Dead Wilderness' by The Shooters



It’s high time I just come clean.  I am the terrible human who knows something special and never really wants to share it, with anybody.  Perfect example:

We had this restaurant that was drop dead amazing.  A meal so damn good that you would eat everything so clean off that plate they could put the dish back in the cabinet.  Spotless and you were so very happy.  That place…the food, the beer, the shit talking.   

Yeah, I never told anybody about that place, it was ours.  Amongst ourselves we called it our super-secret just to make sure the NSA wasn’t gonna be able to get a table before we were.  Seriously, we loved this place so much we never wanted anyone else to know about it.  

Clearly that is terrible in some eyes.  I get it.  That’s why I am coming clean right here.  I have a band that I know is amazing, have loved since their album came out and everyone doesn’t know about them yet.  You can still get a table anytime.  

So why share now you incorrigible bastard?  Because you good people deserve The Shooters. 

This four piece from the south side of Spain bring an abundance of heaviness.  Their album, Dead Wilderness, is one of the finest offerings one could give the gods of rock.  Gold, frankincense, myrrh…who the fuck needs some myrrh?  Give them The Shooters they will thank you for it.

The album is a compendium of everything that is good in rock and roll.  It is a chronicle of perfect riffs supplied in a tone that sounds like honey dipped satan.  The opener Lost In Time gives you a driving pulse supplied by the rhythm section of Dani on drums and Bo on bass.  Marcos on lead guitar chunks away with a riff that hits so hard you could probably file charges.  The song is tied together with the gambling rage and range of Carlos’ vocals.  

War On You is the next track, it’s got without question the greatest guitar riff Spain has ever exported.  Every track is good, I have had six favorite songs from this album and there are a grand total of six on it.
Listen, enjoy, you will be happy you did.  

All I ask is that you don't tell everybody about The Shooters, just the cool ones.
