Reviews:
-----------

"Moon Tooth draw heavy influence from Torche, Mastodon, Baroness and the luck, but they somehow manage to make it sound completely original while feeling so, so familiar." - Metal Sucks - www.metalsucks.net/2013/08/27/unsigned-789/

"Gut-thumping prog and punk influenced metal that effortlessly blends the high-adrenaline and technical virtuosity of The Dillinger Escape Plan with the snarl of Mastodon." - Good Times Magazine

"The energy just spills out of Freaks in a raging torrent of sounds, battering the ears and daring you not to dig it. It’s impossible not to be drawn in by the sheer exuberance on display here." - The Sleeping Shaman - www.thesleepingshaman.com/reviews/album-reviews/m/moon-tooth-freaks-digital-ep-2013/

"The primary ethos of Moon Tooth is clearly infinite, indefinite, indifferent Energy. This record is chock full of piss and vinegar and there is no rest for these wicked young lads. At all times their music screams, "now now now now."
-Salty Speakers. saltyspeakers.com/reviewsnews.html

"Overall, you can tell that arrangement, complexity, ultra-tight performances, a clean production and just plain catchiness were well thought out and the end result is nothing short of brilliance. Go listen to this band, especially if you are looking for something new and interesting." - The Sludgelord. thesludgelord.blogspot.com/2013/09/moontooth-freaks-ep-review.html

"Upon first encounter it is apparent that "FREAKS" is bursting at the seams with vitality and energy, and never slows down for the entire ride." - Sputnik Music. www.sputnikmusic.com/review/58948/Moon-Tooth-FREAKS/

"It's fast, heavy as the earth itself, melodic and strikingly beautiful, all at the same time..." - Review of FREAKS EP by Norwegian site DEN DRUKNE SKALD - dendrukneskald.com/2013/07/25/moon-tooth-freaks-ep/

" It was like all hell breaking loose at the church congregation's annual picnic. Bodies scattered and ran for cover as the band put Clifton on notice. It was a jaw dropping set that took my jaw right out of it's proper place and to the clubs unwashed floor." - live review of Dingbatz show 5.1.13 by James Damion // unitedbyrocketscience.blogspot.com

Track Name: Ebb/Flow
Brighter souls have stripped me of my worth.
Tangible, yes but only at first.
Broken nails, tear mere holes in my earth.
Bottomless, and strange visions they birth.
Waking dream, a mirage of what was.
Fooled to think that it won't end in blood.

Hold on tight to someone.

It all flows away.
Don't fear how I'll die someday.
My life's been a fruitless waste,
and I long to see you again.

The ebb and flow of the waves in the sea...
Paints her picture,
only to mock me.
I await...
her return at the shore,
Know in my heart...
This realm holds her no more.

I long for the other side.

Hold on tight to someone.

It all flows away.
Don't fear how I'll die someday.
My life's been a fruitless waste,
and I long to feel you again.
Track Name: Goon
What keeps you propped up like a man?
Is it the way you talk 'round friends?
Boys who laugh with hidden hands

You hear it when you climb in bed
The voices echo in your head
Know what you did, know what you said

I know the truth
You'll get what's due
There'll be no mercy here for you

Karma knows not sympathy

Bring me the head of the clown
Stuck on a pike o'er town
Crows nest in his crooked crown

I know the truth
You'll get what's due
There'll be no mercy here for you

Karma knows not sympathy
Track Name: Storm Pill
I feel dark clouds approaching
Their clang rings a vengeful omen
And I know why they speak in frantic whispers
They don't want me to know

So take the storm pill
You don't have to feel anything real
Just close those grey eyes

...and I was falling asleep
Just as soon as my head hit the ground
There's something happening to me
But I think I'll keep it down
And I was lost in a dream
I had no will to be found

My jaw clicks
My skull, it drips
I need someone to save me from myself

Stepping over black snakes in coitus
I stop to stare, they don't seem to notice
And I know why they chose to let me watch them
They want me to know...

So take the storm pill
You don't have to feel anything real
It's just your time to die

...and I was falling asleep
Just as soon as my head hit the ground
There's something happening to me
But I think I'll keep it down
And I was lost in a dream
I had no will to be found

My jaw clicks
My skull, it drips
I need someone to save me from myself
Track Name: Silver Gallows
She drove me home after the fire went out
And showed me her silver gallows
We talked until our moon came out
And reflected in the shallows

I'll sway in the breeze long after the crows pick me clean
You'll watch my body twist and turn with eyes of light
I never gave you in life and
All of the mournful gather 'round
This silver noose
I hang from still

And when you finally cut me down
Don't bury me in the garden
We both know nothing will grow there
And I need old dirt to roll in

I'll sway in the breeze long after the crows pick me clean
You'll watch my body twist and turn with eyes of light
I never gave you in life and
All of the mournful gather 'round
This silver noose
I hang from still

And I'll swing for the rest of my days
It's okay, I found rhythm to sway
