CHECK OUT: Pulling Teeth from Japan are insane…7 records in…alive since 1997

Pulling Teeth

Yesterday we had the honor of spreading some much needed and well-deserved attention towards the dudes behind Indonesia’s great Straight Answer…

Today we got another band that we just happened to come across online – a band from Japan called Pulling Teeth that have been at it since 1997…they’re 7 records deep and just released their latest one for which one of the songs you can check out below.

Let me just say this – I don’t know how to describe the music…you sense that these guys certainly grew up on thrash metal but then in the music video the bass player is playing a stand up bass – so they have some rockabilly in there too?

Once the vocals come in and the unique choice of notes and vocal scales he uses to sing TOTALLY continues to throw you for a loop. I was left scratching my head many times during this one song…then I did some research and it turns out Pulling Teeth were one of the first bands that opened up for Slayer when they first started doing free standing shows in Japan. One of Pulling Teeth’s first albums sold 1 million copies! WHAT?! In 1999 the band tried to make a new record in Japan for playing the most shows in one year – they played 156 shows in Japan in 1999…

Then I stopped and thought – “Damn, there aren’t many bands in the world that will make you scratch your head in 2015! THIS SHIT IS AMAZING!”
