(7/10) 3Teeth is an Industrial Metal band, hailing from sunny California. The guys premiered in 2014, a release that brought them the attention of Tool’s guitarist Adam Jones. One thing came to another and 3Teeth jumped on a tour with Tool and Primus.
With such a kickstart the second album ‘shutdown.exe’ went right into the Billboard charts and it’s the third strike that tries to add to the picture.
‘Metawar’ is an album that might be interesting for fans of bands like Ministry, with which they are touring also this year. 3Teeth’s sound is build on a strong grooving rhythm section and aggressive riffing. Playing around with electronica gives this album extra density. The entire package sounds like Marilyn Manson meets Ministry meets the early Linkin Park and here we are at the little downer. It reminds a bit ‘too much of’. Besides the fact that the album contains cool songs there isn’t a lot we haven’t heard earlier and it’s the energy level that compensates.
All in all the album will continue 3Teeth’s winning streak, no doubt. This kind of music will find its target group as the previous two long players did.
