What a year. Here is a summary of my most pleasurable listening experiences. Quick shout outs to Gaza, Eldrimner, Acrania (Mexico), Disfiguring the Goddess, Gods of Eden, Trash Talk, Xibalba and TesseracT who just barely missed the cut. Sorry guys.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy my list. I didn’t mess around. Just meat and potatoes. Also, I’d love it if you left a comment validating my list or insulting me for terrible taste! Either way, happy doomsday!

After a couple of slow days, it would seem the pace is starting to pick up again. And what better way to begin than with a new track from everybody’s favourite ‘come-at-me-bro’-core band, Cut Your Teeth —
‘ sounds damn heavy and almost veers into the realm of powerviolence in places, making it probably the most punk-infused track we’ve heard from the band yet. Naturally, there’s another killer solo, as we’ve come to expect, but that doesn’t water down the potency at all.
Whilst there’s not been any murmurs of a new full length any time soon, I can only hope that this trickle of new material is pointing towards a new release some time this year. But as always, you can go straight to their bandcamp page and download the new track, alongside all their previous material!
For some reason, Cut Your Teeth just don’t get the attention they deserve. Their new track “If It’s Loud” was released just before the new year and is a 2 minute ode to everything that’s fun about hardcore and thrash, containing the sort of lyrics Manowar would write if they picked up a six pack and dropped the dragons and elves. Naturally, there’s crusty riffs, shout-a-longs and even the Cut Your Teeth mainstay of a guitar solo that would do Eddie Van Halen proud — even now I’m overthinking it, it’s just a great track.
Best of all? It’s free much like the entire Cut Your Teeth discography, including the brilliant CYTII which was on my shortlist for the best albums of 2011 but unfortunately lost out in ruthless culling down to only 20 albums. Head over here to their Bandcamp page for the free downloads. Also, after the jump is a bonus video of Cut Your Teeth improving the Limp Bizkit hits collection tenfold by dressing in onesies and squealing incomprehensibly over the top of them.

Admittedly, thrash isn’t my forte. I could never get into the genre save for a few choice bands here and there; not to say the genre is bad or anything like that, of course. It’s just not appealing to me for the most part. I’m sure a number of Heavy Blog readers can identify, considering our average subject material and its drawing. Taking into consideration my distaste for the genre, I suppose it means something when I say that NYC cross-over thrash band Cut Your Teeth are damn good.

Have a good week folks!
Are you ready for some new music for NYC based hardcore/thrash band Cut Your Teeth? Shut up, you know you are!
Cut Your Teeth are preparing for the release of their new album CYTII this month, and in promotion of CYTII, they’re reaching out to the various blogs to give out free songs from the album. You can stream and download “No Pain” below. If you like it, check out The Number of the Blog for another new song “Four Loko Made Me Do It”. Enjoy!
Yes, I’m aware that the headline is lame and obvious, but that doesn’t make Cut Your Teeth not awesome. The band have been preparing a series of free downloadable racks that will soon be available on fine blogging institutions like Gunshy Assassin, The Number of the Blog and, of course, Heavy Blog. But that isn’t until next month. Keep an eye out for it!
For now, though, the band released a 5-track EP on Bandcamp and just released one of the raddest videos I’ve seen in a while for their song “Stallion.” It’s performance footage, but it’s done intensely. I’m a sucker for guitar vision!
Be sure to check out Cut Your Teeth on their official website and bandcamp. Like I said earlier, we’ll be hosting two new songs from these rockers in February, so stick around!
