Today AltPress is premiering the video for “Filth,” the latest from impeccably pedigreed metal/noisecore trio, Teeth. It’s the follow-up to their previous single, “Destroyer,” the perfect soundtrack for your next skeletal dislocation.
Teeth are frontman Blake Prince (Anniversary, Straight Reads The Line), guitarist Chris LeMasters (ex-Dead And Divine, Hundred Suns) and drummer Ryan Leger (ex-Every Time I Die, Hundred Suns). One look at “Filth” and it’s readily apparent that these guys know how to send psychic shrapnel through a room. Directed by Travis Didlock, the clip reveals Prince’s ability to roar so scarily, it will turn your blood into Freon. Of course, LeMasters and Leger bring the necessary octane booster to propel the whole friggin’ operation to tear a hole into the sky.
“We started this band as an outlet,” LeMasters begins. “A place where we could embrace anger and frustration and sometimes dark subject matter, because everyone needs to vent, you know? ‘Filth’ touches on how truly disgusting and terrible abusive relationships can be. So many women and men find themselves in these gross, violent, toxic, cyclical relationships that they can’t escape while abusers gaslight or try to chalk their actions up to ‘love.’ The lyric, ‘Love is a lie, filth is eternal’ is almost like someone pushing back and revolting against that narrative.”
Teeth are a highly combustible device who don’t keep the bar high as much as they rip it off the wall and mete out some justice with it. Their debut, DIY, yet-to-be-titled EP is slated for release next year. The band will also be playing their first live shows for maximum devastation in 2020. Until then, sprain some vertebrae banging your head to this.
