TEETH OF THE LIONS RULE THE DIVINE Rampton CD

Yet another conglomerate experiment in lugubrious heft from the good folks at Southern Lord features engineer Billy Anderson, Justin Greaves of Iron Monkey/Hard to Swallow, Greg Anderson of Sunn 0))) and Goatsnake, Lee Dorrian of Cathedral and Napalm Death, and Stephen O'Malley of Khanate, Sunn 0))) and Burning Witch. Perhaps if these guys would just stick to one project, this whole heavy drone thing would seem more fresh and invigorating. But, no… Teeth yada yada offers its take on John Zorn's Painkiller, mid-period Melvins and early Swans. However, the production and performance is nowhere near as crushing as those records. Sounds like a fun record to make, but when held up against its influences, Teeth just doesn't possess the desired bite. [Southern Lord]
