Welcome to the To The Teeth newsletter! I’ll bring you up to date with new heavy music. You can 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.
This is a good day for death metal. Cntrl+f death and go nuts.

MOURNFUL CONGREGATION - The Exuviae of Gods - Part I (EP sampler)
🌶️ Mournful Congregation (funeral doom from Australia. FFO: Bell Witch, Thergothon, Skepticism)
It is kind of hard to explain what I like about funeral doom to people who don’t like or really understand metal - even when they’re not cynical but curious. Mournful Congregation can really touch me, though. It does something inside. The Portuguese have a word they use to describe the feeling they get from listening to fado: ‘Saudade’. A hard to translate mix of melancholy, longing, distance, love, sadness, nostalgia… I think it really fits this band and their beautiful new record (which is an ep, but hits like a double lp)
🌶️ Doldrum (experimental black from the USA. FFO: Ved Buens Ende, Erraunt, Arcturus)
Are you a man.. who knocks? I’ve asked myself that question since the Doldrum demo came out in november 2020. Not because I know what it means, but just because it’s stamped on my brain. Doldrum does that. They make very melodic, catchy and compelling experimental black metal, which should come at no surprise since the main man from the brilliant Erraunt is in this group.
🌶️ Inanna (proggy death from Chile. FFO: Death, Morbid Angel, VoidCeremony, Haunter)
I’ve had only half a day with this, but it’s very impressive stuff: layered, creative, massive… very cool. Can’t wait to spend more time with this.
Note: both Doldrum and Ianna are not on Spotify as of yet.
