One week after launching new single "Queen Wolf," Moon Tooth has premiered a video for the song, via Metal Injection.

"Queen Wolf" is the first song off the Long Island, New York band's debut full-length Chromaparagon, set to be released February 5th.

Pre-order the album here:

A fireworks display of melody and rhythm, Chromaparagon is more than that too – its progressive, aggressive sound is brimming with soul, riddled with hairpin turns, and delivered with the grace and swing of real virtuosos. Over the course of twelve songs, Moon Tooth mashes together rock, metal, and blues, into a fusion that bursts with color. There are few limits hereMoon Tooth possesses the imagination and skill to swerve into whatever musical direction it wants. But this band wanders without getting lost; it channels its wild dreaming and black-belt chops into an album that drives forward with purpose.

Frontman John Carbone carries forth the tradition of singers with the range and the courage to go for it. Like Jeff BuckleyInto Another's Richie Birkenhead or Shudder to Think's Craig Wedren, Carbone belts it out with a soaring voice that can command quiet subtlety as well as arena-rocking operatics. 

Loosely speaking, some modern-day reference points include The Mars Volta, Mastodon, and Between The Buried And Me. But Moon Tooth is its own, unique, "undeniably strange, totally kick-ass beast" as one MetalSucks editor put it.

"Top-notch musicality, crafty songwriting, and mesmerizing live show. They have my vote for best new band..."

–Metal Injection

"They're heavy, they're melodic, they're intimidatingly skilled musicians, they're great songwriters, and holy shit, wait 'til you see them live."

–MetalSucks

"Technical, melodic, and shreddy without being wanky... The band's bio compares vocalist John Carbone's voice to Jeff Buckley, and he certainly has one hell of a range."

–Metal Insider

"Aggressive, proggy... Something to keep your eye on."

–American Aftermath
