By To The Teeth • Issue #88 • View online
Welcome to the To The Teeth newsletter! I’ll bring you up to date with new heavy music. Listen to almost everything in the playlist on Spotify. Peppers are hot 🌶️! If you like what you read and want help keep this in the air: please head over to Patreon.
There are some weeks I can’t find anything I like to point out. This week is different. Great week!

New albums
Abbath - Dream Cull
Abbath - Dream Cull
🌶️ Abbath (black from Norway) (FFO: Immortal, Mayhem)
This dude was and is so important to remind us that black metal can be fun and brutal at the same time. I’m not sure yet if I think this record is on par with his first two, but at least it’s fun and brutal.
🌶️ Dream Widow (thrash from the USA) (FFO: Dave Grohl)
Mysterious band! No it’s not, this is Dave Grohl having fun with his old love: metal. Grohl knows how to write a good song ánd you can hear he genuinly loves the riffs, without really letting go of his poppy leanings. I’m a little disappointed that not everything is as heavy as ‘March of the Insane’, but this is still good stuff I would’ve dug if it was an band of unknowns for sure.
🌶️ Desolate Shrine (death from Finland) (FFO: Sulphur Aeon)
Check out the perfect riff, in ‘Echoes in the Hall of Vanity’ just around the 3:50 mark. It’s so, so good.
🌶️ Mystifier & Luficer’s Child (black/death from Brazil & black from Greece) (FFO: Varathron, Mortuary Drape)
This is the first split from the legendary Mystifier since 1993, and it’s great. I don’t know if I’m happier with Mystifier being gloriously themselves, or discovering I really like Lucifer’s Child.
There’s more: Falls of Rauros (🌶️ black/folk from the USA), Animals as Leaders (instrumental prog from the USA), Eucharist (melodeath/black from Sweden), Father Befouled (death from the USA), Soul Glo (🌶️ hardcore/screamo/rap from the USA), Absent in Body (sludge/post from the USA - members of Neurosis, Amenra, Iggor Cavalera), Astral Tomb (death/drugs from the USA), Chaos Invocation (black from Germany), Daemon Lord (heavy/speed from Peru), Kvaen (black/viking from Sweden), Heltekvad (black from Denmark), MWWB (doom/stoner from the UK - formerly known as Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard), a split from Glass Coffin & Threshing Spirit (both black from the USA), Bomber (heavy from Sweden), and Nite (black/heavy from the USA).
New singles
Septicflesh - Neuromancer
Septicflesh - Neuromancer
There are new songs out from: Evergrey (prog/power from Sweden), Floor Jansen (symphonic from the Netherlands - solo work from the Nightwish singer), Meshuggah (tech/djent from Sweden), No/Más (grind/death from the USA), Somali Yacht Club (psych/post from Ukraine 🌻), Septicflesh (symphonic death from Greece), Zola Jesus (dark… things from the USA), Luminous Vault (death/black/industrial from the USA), Powerwolf (power from Germany), Ibaraki (metalcore/black from the USA - Matt Heafy’s project, this time feat. Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance), Yatra (sludge/doom from the USA), Djevelkult (black from Norway), Freja (black from The Netherlands), Portrayal of Guilt (post-hardcore/black from the USA), Revenant Marquis (raw black/ambient from the UK), Assumption (doom/death from Italy), Gott (psych/doom from the Netherlands - members of The Devil’s Blood, Severe Torture, Ggu:ll, Dodecahedron) and Sepulchral Curse (🌶️ blackened death from Finland).
Plus: Opeth (🌶️ prog from Sweden) has released an In Cauda Venenum b-side that was on an ep that you can only get with the new box version of the ICV album. Meaning: fanboys who bought the box version early - me - could only get the ep by buying the same expensive box version for a second time. Fucked up, I hope this song means the ep gets a proper release. Anyway, the song truly is amazing. The Swedish version was a Decibel flexi track.
Non-metal & next week
Non-metal album of the week: Guerilla Toss (alt rock from the USA)
I’m looking forward to next week because of: Meshuggah, Satan, Bhleg & Golgothan Remains.
Have a great weekend people, stay safe - Peter
