Teeth of the Hydra

Greenland (Tee Pee)


Teeth of the Hydra do the Celtic Frost thing about as well as Celtic Frost -- sometimes better, in epic eruptions of black sludge, thundering doom, and drums shrouded in darkness. The band's long-awaited full-length debut doesn't quite deliver on the unstable promise of a previous round of demos and recordings; while Greenland deserves your bucks, track down the out-of-print "Tokyo Under Marshall Law" as an mp3. New drummer Jamie Stillman (ex-Party of Helicopters, Harriet the Spy) delivers a blast beat as well as he plays smart indie rock.
