And so the wave of abstract death metal continues! Keeping in the practice of bridging death metal with jazz-fusion inspired technique and dark atmospheric qualities, New York’s Baring Teeth are the lesser known peers of critically acclaimed acts such as Pyrrhon, Ulcerate, and Mother Brain. With the budding genre gaining attention as of late, hopefully Baring Teeth will finally break out of the underground with their upcoming full-length, Ghost Chorus Among Old Ruins. ‘Mountain’, a new track from the album, has been made available for streaming, and you can check it out after the jump.
The creeping showcase of technical and artistic prowess has earned the comparison of “[Mastodon‘s] Leviathan on acid” during behind the scenes discussion at Heavy Blog staff HQ, and it’s not an altogether incorrect description. The song certainly carries a high-brained and kaleidoscopic take on the sludge aesthetic throughout. Perhaps angel dust or bath salts would be more apt drugs of choice to describe Baring Teeth’s affect? Surely the rest of Ghost Chorus Among Old Ruins will be a surreal experience.
The new album will see release November 5th through Willowtip Records. Pre-orders are available at this location.
