Happy Holidays From TeethoftheDivine!!!

Well, it’s the time of the year when the staff here at TeethoftheDivine take a short break for the Holidays. Unlike Apple workers, we give our little elves a little time off to celebrate the season with their families, loved ones, cats or sex doll of choice.

Teeth of The Divine Presents : Exclusive Exsanguination track from forthcoming album!!!!

TeethoftheDivine and Horror Pain Gore Death Productions has teamed up to deliver an exclusive song, “The Void” from Burial Rites, the forthcoming second album from Massachusetts’s Exsanguination.!

Read the Official press release below from HPGD Productions:


We say this every year, but 2022 was a fantastic year in metal. With literally too many killer releases to cover, especially with the increase of digital-only/Bandcamp releases.

And as usual, there was a mix of veteran acts that are still at the top of their game, and fresh new blood to get excited about and the future of metal seems to be in good hands.

Our carefully cured lists cover a whole gamut of styles and releases, so feast your eyes on our best of 2022 staff lists, check out the linked reviews and feel free to comment, let us know what we got right or wrong, and post your own lists in the comments.

Here’s to 2023 continuing the trend of great years as we get the likes of Metallica, Obituary, In Flames, Insomnium, Distant, Ne Obliviscaris, Extermination Dismemberment, Sanguisugabogg, and no doubt, exciting debuts from up and comers.

As always, thanks for reading, sharing, liking, and commenting. You are why we do this (and maybe some early free music). So please keep coming back here for your metal reviews, features, and general metal fuckery.


We all know the sequel is usually better than the first part right? Aliens, Terminator 2, The Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight, Wrath of Khan, Debbie Does Dallas 2.

And we here at TeethoftheDivine know the kind of pressure that comes with making a sequel – it has to be bigger, better, the villains might even win, leaving the door open for a part 3 let down…

So we thought we would change it up for the second part of out Halloween Killer Cuts Special. So our writers could not go back to the well of know classics again. Instead the songs had to be from 2022…..

Interview With The Project Hate MCMXCIX

Question: name a Swedish death metal band that has been around for over 20 years, and has released 14 consistently good albums in that time span? Chances are you were not thinking of The Project Hate MCMXCIX, the brainchild of one Lord K Phillipson, a gentleman whom I have conserved with over the internet over the years since the third album, Hate, Dominate, Congregate, Eliminate. His supporting cast has changed over the years (though he has been finally locked into a stable group of hired guns for a while now), but one thing remains; the absolutely monstrous albums he and his troupe kicks out.

And what makes it even more impressive is that the last 6 albums have been donation funded, paid for by fans of the project, via ‘donation experiments’ whereby fans can donate money, and upon a certain amount being reached, he commences assembling his musical avengers and recording the album and sends those results digitally to those that donated. There is even a limited CD run if the fans, again want to pay for the whole CD-making process.

Teeth of the Divine Presents: Remembering Trevor Strnad (1981-2022)

A dear friend of mine once gave me one the most profound pieces of advice I’ve ever been given in life: If you could choose one thing to have in life – choose fun.

Sounds simple enough, right? But life, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you, doesn’t always (or even often) make this so easy. In truth, we’re all just doing our best to try and get by and, when we can, find whatever time is left over to surround ourselves with the people and passions that make life worth the effort.

Happy Holidays From Teeth of the Divine!!!!

Well, another year in the books, and although 2021 wasn’t quite the steaming pile of shit as 2020, it certainly had a distinct reek. But Boy did a year in lockdown result in some creativity as 2021 saw an absolute landslide of production, creativity, and the welcome return of shows!

Teeth of the Divine Presents: ‘One Hit Wonders’

The metal universe is chock full of legendary, long lasting acts who delivered album after album of excellence or at least some level of  consistency, even with a misstep or two; for example, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Bolt Thrower, Dismember, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Incantation, Deicide, Suffocation etc.

But for every one of those bands that had the right recipe for longevity and quality, there are 50 or more that never ‘made’ it. And my made it, we mean they just had one killer album or EP and for any number of reasons, never followed that release up.

Interview With Sacrifice

To this day, Canadian thrash metal band, Sacrifice, have not only put out quality music, but have been one of my favorites in the extreme metal music scene. Ever since their incredible 1986 debut, Torment in Fire, they have been highly influential to the scene that they helped to create. They started out primarily as a death/thrash band, with even some black metal influence early on then developed into a speed/thrash band. Put on any one of their albums, Forward to Termination, Soldiers of Misfortune or Apocalypse Inside and you will hear a band that has created outstanding music that has aged extremely well. When the band put together the pieces and reformed and put out the 2009 The Ones I Condemn album I was skeptical as to how they would sound.
