Featured on IDIOTEQ last year, Canadian metalcore/punk act IN THE NAME OF HAVOC have joined their forces with Toronto heavy hardcore act LOOSE TEETH for a new split record, just premiered on New Noise Magazine and available for streaming below. The first part of the record plays well with at least a couple of styles and genres, while the rest of the tracks gnaw at your bones. Listen below.
IN THE NAME OF HAVOC commented on their part of the split:
“These three songs represent the conflict between the self, the social, and the state. The first is a monologue arguing self-destruction as a more immediate solution to depression and inadequacy. The second follows the aftermath of over-indulgence and realizing the outward judgement incurred from inadequate coping mechanisms. The final song turns away from frustration at the self, and turns it towards a state that has habitually overlooked and marginalized others in a far more intense way.
Toronto locals, LOOSE TEETH are a new project from long-standing members of Toronto’s eclectic music scene. Their sound is both chaotic and melancholy whilst sombre and jocular. This is their first official release for this project. They offered some details on the concepts for their tracks:
The song SOAK is about, Salem, a sad little town in southern Massachusetts that remains ravished by its dark history. The song is loosely based on the singer, Alexander Clark’s family’s experience having established there.
