New Band To Burn One To-Teeph

The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Teeph.

"Hails to Teeph from Chico, CA. At first I thought this was going to be a straight up sludge affair, then this trio reared its ugly grinding head. Teeph traverse many extreme genres, they fuck around with them all, they canoodle with the death and grind, pet the doom, master the sludge and caress the downtuned. Literally, one second they are an angular machine taking sharp turns like Tron in its motorcycle (or whatever that was), the next they are letting the notes fall into a dark abyss. That it works, is an accomplishment. And so Teeph’s appeal is pretty damn broad. Their songs are acerbic, like noise rock gone metal, like metal that knows no NWOBHM, like punk that’s gone awry and hardcore that’s way too dense for the chugga chugga heads, but somehow these songs don’t provide for a fractured listening experience. This is their first self-titled release and Teeph are packing. Nine powerful beasts. Cool cover artwork." Deafsparrow

My 2 Cents:

If you are looking for a band that has a hodge-podge of different styles ranging from Sludge to Experimental Grindcore, but does it very well without sounding confusing and hard to listen to, then give Teeph a thorough listen. I like the direction that this band is going in and look forward to hearing their progression. In the meantime, the band has made their self-titled debut available on Bandcamp. Check it out NOW!
