Many people have tried to classify Tooth: Thrash Metal. Hardcore. Stoner Metal. Beard Metal. Mix them up in a large bowl, and you might come close.
However you want to describe them, their all-out metal assault will grab you by your earhole, and won't let go until you bow down and pray to their Marshall stacks. Tooth's debut EP, "Animality", was released in December 2007 to critical acclaim.
What other people are saying:
"A thundering herd of Bull City heavies, Tooth's bludgeon is brisk and its vocals are vicious. Another notch in the increasingly proud belt of Southern metal, Tooth jabs eardrums like amplified jackhammers." -- Grayson Currin, Independent Weekly
"With its debut — best described as badass — Tooth digs into the legacy of Southern metal and hardcore, creating a searing sound akin to a burn from a deep-fryer, and ultimately the band creates its own brand of down-tuned, hell-bent monster." -- Bryan Reed, Diversions
"... as impressively diverse as the band's palate on Animality may be, its strongest suit is the consistency of its low-slung and low-strung guitars. Front to back, the record's got the detuned depth its panoramic girth deserves. In a year filled with Deep South pot-metal from Wilmington's Weedeater and psych-heaviness from Savannah bands like Kylesa and Baroness, this record holds its own, boasting a lot of quality in 20 minutes." -- Robbie Mackey, Independent Weekly
