To The Teeth | New Heavy Music

April 2 · Issue #51 · View online

The best independent new heavy music playlist on Spotify, now per email

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.
I’m trying to make this newsletter a little less word-soup, a little more guide. If you have a suggestions, please let me know.

Three new albums you should hear
Wode - Fire in the Hills
🌶️ Wode - Burn In Many Mirrors (black from the UK, listen)
Black metal wherein the riff wins over atmosphere. They impressed me on their 2016 debut and the follow-up a year later. They’re back with a more potent poison in their tunes, with flourishes of death metal and a few progressive elements.
🌶️ Dead Neanderthals - Rat Licker (jazzgrind from the Netherlands, listen)
Jazz and grindcore, I hear you say, is that a fair categorization? I don’t know. But the improvised, ever changing style of this duo is as much free form as it is uncompromising. Interesting, too. And fucking loud.
🌶️ Fuoco Fatuo – Obsidian Katabasis (funeral doom from Italy, listen)
Take your time, hurry up. These Italians add a little pinch of death metal in their funeral doom concoction and I have always learned: when there are Italians cooking, you shut up and taste. It’s massive and intense.
There's more
Gnod (drugs/riffs from the UK - it says this comes out in may, but it’s out on Spotify), The Sun and the Mirror (experimental from doom/ambient from Italy), a collaboration from Rorcal & Earthflesh (black/doom & harsh noise from Switzerland), 夢遊病者 (Sleepwalker) (black from Russia/USA/Japan), Steel Bearing Hand (death/thrash from the USA), Urthshroud (black from the USA - a new Colin Marston - Krallice etc - project), Mythic Sunship (prog/psych rock from Denmark), Jute Gyte (experimental black from the USA), Ghostbound (prog from the USA), Tenue (blackgaze/post rock from Spain), and Olhava (atmoblack from Russia). More in the playlist!
New singles
Bodom After Midnight - Paint The Sky With Blood
There are new singles, songs and advance tracks out from: Bodom After Midnight (🌶️ melodic death/power - project from the late Alexi Laiho), Motorpsycho (🌶️ psych rock from Norway), Esoctrilihum (avantgarde black from France), Thy Catafalque (avantgarde from Hungary), Paysage d'Hiver (black from Switzerland), Dödsrit (black/crust from Sweden), Grey Aura (avantgarde black from the Netherlands), The Armed (🌶️ post hardcore/hardcore punk from the USA), Vreid (meloblack from Norway), Acausal Intrusion (tech death from the USA), Kælan Mikla (dark artpunk from Iceland) and a cover from Amenra (doom/sludge from Belgium). The rest is in the playlist!
Bonus: top five of 2021 (first quarter)
Because I’m a nerd.
  1. Mare Cognitum - Solar Paroxysm
  2. Gatecreeper - An Unexpected Reality
  3. Terminal Bliss - Brute Err/Ata
  4. Krallice - Demonic Wealth
  5. Witherfall - The Curse of Autumn]
Next week
Non-metal album of the week: Godspeed You! Black Emperor - G_d’s Pee AT STATE’S END! (music genres, from Canada)
I’m looking forward to next week because of: Kauan, The Lion’s Daughter.
Have a great weekend! - Peter
