Teeth Of The Divine

These state capital fun nuts blew me away when I saw them live. To this day I remember the show and since then I’ve never been able to get enough of their LP, Breaks. They reminded me of an old legendary punk band like X but more care free with the tonality of a damn good doom band. They get wild on this one with the riffs and keep things almost entirely instrumental; showing off their chops and prog influences while tearing through punk rock speed/attitude and bellowing doom grooves. There’s also a fuckin’ deliciously sneering cover of Weedeater’s God Luck and Good Speed that really gets it on. They trip out the vocals and instrumentals more with Stefanie (drums) and Francis (bass) really kicking ass on the twin microphones.
