Born from a musician’s desire to re-envelope their life in the heaviness that is metal and to refamiliarize with a conduit that could be considered detrimental amidst today’s destructive society, the gritty powerhouse that is TEETH emerged from the sludge of a foul generation. For over 20 years founders Blake Louis Prince and Chris LeMasters have not just maintained a friendship, but a working relationship on the road, touring with other projects, and sustaining their careers. Their need to create this specific variety of instinctual music eventually led to a decision to collaborate and develop a pressure cooker of raw and abrasive sonic eruptions.
While many bands and record labels are enslaving themselves to the algorithm, TEETH simply allows their music to be a conductor for the inevitable pain and violence that is reality. Their adherence to this artistic integrity is a huge part of what caught the eye of heavy metal foundry, Nuclear Blast Records. Recently signed to the label, this new union stands only to further amplify into the new year.
Resolved to utilize the carcasses of their conquered demons as fodder for a new euphonious weapon, TEETH wanted to create the most ignorant, aggressive sounding music imaginable.
Highly influenced by discomfort, there can be no compromise in the structure of what they’re producing because what flows from TEETH is purely honest, and quite unlike anything that has been heard before. Songs like “DESTROYER” (the first song the band ever wrote or released) received overwhelming feedback that led them to hunker down and record the others.
TEETH themselves, have proclaimed that the project is more like an absence of songwriting. While most bands are trying to figure out how to fit a chorus into the first 30 seconds of what they want to be a single, TEETH are of the philosophy that every subsequent part of the song needs to be more disgusting, uncomfortable, and nasty than the part before it.
Only a couple things remain to be seen with TEETH: when will their new album drop, and what bands can you look forward to seeing them grace the stage with? Keep your eyes on Nuclear Blast Records and TEETH socials for updates.
