Yellowtooth are a band from Indiana that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Crushed by The Wheels Of Progress" which will be released on July 21st by Orchestrated Misery Records.
Spoken word samples and gun shots start off the album before going into a very heavy and melodic sludge metal direction along with some aggressive vocals that also add a touch of death and groove metal onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music also brings in elements of stoner rock.
Traces of southern metal can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and when solos and leads are utilized they give the songs more of a retro rock feeling and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and there are also some songs that bring in a small amount of clean singing and the music speeds up a bit on some tracks as the album progresses and also adds in a brief use of blast beats.
Yellowtooth continue the mixture of stoner, sludge and doom metal of previous recordings while also adding in more touches of groove metal to change their musical style around a bit, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover assassins, drugs and human misery themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Yellowtooth and if you are a fan of the band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Climbing the Mountain" "Crushed By the Wheels Of Progress" and "Virginia Creeper". 8 out of 10.
