Welcome to the To The Teeth newsletter. I’ll bring you up to date with new heavy music. As always: listen to almost everything at the playlist on Spotify, check out the Facebook page and for support please head over to Patreon! Peppers are hot, hot hot.
Yeah I was on a holiday for a week, and had an incredibly busy week after. This one wasn’t very chill either, so quick and dirty.
I’ll pick out my favourites, the rest is in the playlist!

Five albums you need to hear
Panopticon - Know Hope
🌶️ Panopticon - And Again Into the Light (black/folk from the USA, listen)
I love Panopticon. I’m a huge sucker for big, atmospheric black metal with folk influences well done, and this band does it like not much others. Still it’s been a while since the last record that really blew me away (Autumn Eternal) and this record is not a sledgehammer either - especially the wonky start is offputting a bit. But: like the last record I keep coming back to it and it’s growing and growing on me. Last song ‘Know Hope’ is one of the best black metal songs this year.
🌶️ Esoctrilihum - Dy'th (avantgarde black from France, listen)
What does this guy eat and where do I get it?
🌶️ Vola - Witness (prog from Denmark, listen)
Man it must be great to be a big fan of djenty, progressive metal. There seems to be so much quality in this genre the last few years. To be clear: I’m not necessarily a big fan and a lot of it goes right over my head. But Vola strike a chord with me.
🌶️ Impure Wilhelmina - Antidote (post from Switzerland, listen)
I especially love the first half of the record, that kind of slips off after that. But it really fills a gap in the heart of everyone who loves early 2000’s Katatonia. Great melodies, convincing delivery.
🌶️ Vulture - Dealin’ Death (speed/thrash from Germany, listen)
This is the real shit here. It’s speed and it’s thrash, so you know what wild poison to expect. But it’s also really clever and exciting music with bends and turns you won’t expect.
There’s more: Blessings (🌶️ post-hardcore/noise/punk from Sweden), An Autumn For Crippled Children (post-black/shoegaze from the Netherlands), a live album from Amorphis (progressive melodic death/doom from Finland), Yautja (grind/sludge from the USA), Acausal Intrusion (tech death from the USA), Anatomia (death/doom from Japan), Epiphanic Truth (all kinds of stuff, from the UK), Nadja (drone/doom from Canada), a covers album from Monster Magnet (stoner from the USA), Nemorous (atmospheric black from the UK) and Borgne (industrial black from Switzerland).
New singles
Hooded Menace - Blood Ornaments
There are new songs, singles and advance tracks out from: Insomnium (melodeath from Finland), Hooded Menace (🌶️ death/doom from Finland), Vouna (🌶️ atmospheric doom/black - Yianna Bekris band, who is also in Eigenlicht), Helloween (power/speed from Germany), Whoredom Rife (black from Norway), Powerwolf (power from Germany), Fractal Universe (progressive tech death from France), Hannes Grossmann (progressive tech death from Germany), Interloper (melodic/progressive metalcore from the USA), Necronemesis (death from Puerto Rico) and Powerwolf (power from Germany).
Next week
Non-metal album of the week:  Mdou Moctar - Afrique Victime (tuareg rock)
I’m looking forward to next week because of:  Ghastly, Portal and Noctule.
Have a great weekend! - Peter
