Metallic hardcore newcomers CUTTING TEETH have released a video for their blistering new single, “No Mercy”.
The band discuss the story behind the song: “No Mercy comes from a feeling of hopeless self-deprecation when you reflect upon your life, and how you try distract yourself from that feeling (in the video, it’s through various substances). You want to fight but you’re overpowered, exhausted and just want to give up. This song tries to illustrate that kind of power struggle, especially with the frantic nature of the riffs, drums and juxtaposition in speed and tone throughout. We wanted to make the listener feel angry and like there’s no rest, almost unease. It’s a very honest song and captured a point in our lives, where as individuals we’ve felt that.”
Inspired by the likes of Every Time I Die, Cancer Bats and Converge, Cutting Teeth take a typically American genre, but fuel it with a British attitude, incorporating DIY ethics into every facet of the band. Only formed in 2018, the Yorkshire quartet have already amassed an impressive live CV, having played shows alongside Bleed From Within, Loathe, Lotus Eater, Parting Gift and Modern Error. The band are quickly gaining a reputation for their frantic, energetic, and passionate live show, and with gigs booked across the country and summer festival appearances announced, 2019 looks to be another non-stop year for CT.
