EDITORS’ NOTES

On their third full-length, the Los Angeles-based nu-metal quintet 3TEETH pays homage to the slick, cynical glory of industrial rock’s ’90s heyday. METAWAR plays like a digital-age upgrade of industrial’s stylistic must-haves—heavy drop-D chords, electronic accents, distorted vocals, misanthropy aplenty. Through layers of processed feedback and digital gloss, vocalist Alexis Mincolla excoriates corporate greed (“AFFLUENZA”), corrupt politicians (“PRESIDENT X”), and consumerism run amok (“EXXXIT”) against a backdrop of thudding rhythms and metallic riffs. And just like their stylistic forefathers Rammstein, Orgy, and Marilyn Manson, all of whom were handy with a nostalgic cover, 3TEETH knows that the future is little more than a dark reflection of the past: The final track here is a blast-furnace take on Foster the People’s breezy 2011 summer jam “Pumped Up Kicks” that strips the original down to the frame and rebuilds it to lay waste to the pit.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Fantastic Album Start to Finish!

Industrial music basically dropped wholly off the radar for a solid decade or more but 3teeth have helped drag it right back to amazing relevance. They continue to grow on Metawar - the addition of Justin on live drums makes for a bigger, more metal sound, and Andrew adding bass guitar in helps the rhythm and bass overall get much deeper and nastier. Lex’s vocals are also getting clearer and better as he continues to push himself. This album is excellent and I love that they’re growing and expanding their sound without selling it out or deviating from their niche. They’re three for three in my books. This album bangs.

Amazing!

The band has shown great growth since their last album (which was awesome). Bornless, President X, Surrender, Blackout ... I could go on. Top to bottom this is heavy, catchy and at times pretty dark. Do yourself a favor and buy this now!

Great album

I love this album from the first song to the last. A very good album all the way through. I’ve never listen to this band before and the first time I was really impressed.
