MOON TOOTH + Gear Gods

"Moon Tooth leads the wolfpack... with shred. Nick [Lee] plays the guitar like his fingers are trapeze artists..."
–Gear Gods

Today, Gear Gods presents a playthrough video showing Moon Tooth guitarist Nick Lee ripping through "Queen Wolf," the first single off his band's upcoming full-length debut, Chromaparagon.

Watch it here:

Also the newest member of classic '80s metal act Riot, guitarist Lee plays with soul and grace, coaxing a whole spectrum of color out of his instrument. His musicianship propels Moon Tooth's sound – a complex yet groovin' mix of rock, metal and blues, with some parallels to The Mars Volta, Between the Buried and Me, and Mastodon, as well as older bands like Into Another.

The "Queen Wolf" single debuted in its audio form, here on MetalSucks, and in video form, here on Metal Injection.

Chromaparagon comes out February 5th – pre-order here:

Moon Tooth has updated its winter tour schedule, beginning with weekend jaunts in December and January, followed by a full East Coast tour in February, and ending with a spot on WSOU's 30th anniversary show with Candiria and Old Wounds.
