No God Only Teeth – Placenta

Hamburg-based No God Only Teeth are a band making their long-distance debut, after last year’s self-titled demo containing the two tracks Gegenlicht and 15.37.12, which have been re-released on this occasion. The first of the two, placed at the beginning, is a good business card for this quintet that rolls out a post-hardcore sludge in a convinced and unsparing way. The biographical notes report the convergence of musicians from backgrounds ranging from punk to metal and, in fact, at various times the first of the two components is felt not only stylistically but also for a typical expressive urgency (found in particular in the more rhythmic Stockholm) found in the exasperated interpretation of the vocalist F., strictly in her mother tongue, which I personally appreciate very much. Six tracks sufficiently variegated for about forty minutes of good extreme music in their approach, but rich in more meditated and melodic passages (Raffer‘s finale is very nice), represent a stimulating first full length for this interesting German combo.
