Teeth Of The Sea – Highly Deadly Black Tarantula // Album Review

97994Rocket Recordings – out now

For nine years, Teeth of the Sea have made excellent experimental rock that’s largely crept under the radar. Occasionally however, they’re asked to do something like play a gig at CERN. Whoever was responsible for that was certainly feeling lucky, because if anything’s going to open a portal to hell, it’s the juxtaposition of music this bizarre next to the Large Hadron Collider. Teeth of the Sea have thrown us so many curveballs over their previous three albums that it’s no surprise Highly Deadly Black Tarantula, their splendid fourth, is yet another barrage of them. It’s electronic drone metal for the dancefloor, with trumpets. It’s the soundtrack to a non-existent film about contracting STDs from tantric sex with robots. It’s terrifying. Listen to it, now.
