MOON TOOTH + Guitar World

Guitar World presents the premiere of Moon Tooth's new album, Chromaparagon, in its entirety. 

Stream Chromaparagon here:

The album hits the streets this Friday, February 5th, self-released by the band, and can be pre-ordered now, here:

From Long Island, New York, Moon Tooth jams hard, bursting with color, soaring vocals, and deft rhythmic shifts. Comparisons are flying as dazed listeners try to peg this band – from The Mars Volta and Living Colour, to Mastodon and Between the Buried and Me. It is a progressive, aggressive bash, blending rock, metal, and blues into a new sound, full of life.

Moon Tooth starts an East Coast US tour tonight in Providence and will play the WSOU 30th anniversary show, alongside Candiria and Old Wounds, February 20th.

"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."


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

–Gear Gods

"Like Mastodon f*cking Living Colour while Gojira watches... Long Island quartet Moon Tooth is on a level of their own. On their debut full-length Chromaparagon, the band deals in an aggressive and progressive form of extremely hard rock that tiptoes into groove-metal but isn't afraid to open up into widescreen choruses."

"New York's prog/sludge/party wunderkind... Combining instrumental and melodic virtuosity with songwriting chops that have garnered well-earned comparisons to Mastodon, Living Colour, Dillinger Escape Plan, and many more musical pioneers..."

"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

"Each unexpected punch to your eardrums feels not only satisfying but also authentic... The passion in these recordings is palpable."
