Moon Tooth

Long Island's Moon Tooth is an oddity, and like many left-field bands, this manifests itself in the band name, album and song titles, and of course the music itself. Chromaparagon, the band's 2016 debut full-length following an EP a few years earlier, can only be slotted as progressive metal, but this is no Dream Theater clone, rather this is more akin to a 90's alterna-metal act careening off the rails songwriting-wise. The songs are varied and quirky, with little regard for airplay or mass appeal, and the musicianship is tech-metal quality, and topping it off are the clear, melodic, yet completely unmetallic vocals of one John Carbone. This is the type of album that takes several listens to absorb, and even then one may not really get what the band is going for. It's bands like Moon Tooth who really deserve the label "progressive".
