Broken Teeth: Bulldozer (EP)

Hard Rock/Heavy Metal
3.5/5.0

Rising out of the "Where Have They Been" file, is Austin Texas rockers, Broken Teeth. My last encounter with the band is some five years ago. Now they return with an EP full of tunes, namely, Bulldozer.

Broken Teeth

Perhaps this analogy will be used profusely by reviewers, but the title aptly describes Broken Teeth's sound. This raw rumbling, run you the fuck over, hard and heavy rock. Basically, Broken Teeth takes essential hard rock twists it with the snarl of punk and the pace of speed metal, then pass it through a bit of Texas boogie. The rhythm section pummels; the guitars roar and rip through your cerebellum via your ear drums; and Jason McMaster rages with his whiskey and barbed wire vocal venom. The production is no muss, no fuss, just hammer it out. As for the EP, it's short, about 25 minutes, with seven songs of five originals and two covers. The originals definitely follow the aforementioned Broken Teeth mold. The covers are Lightning Strikes from Aerosmith's Rock In A Hard Place, given more of a raw punk vibe, and Motorhead's The Hammer from Ace Of Spades. Wait! What the H---! They didn't cover the famous title track? Probably a good thing. Actually, it's a solid rendition with the fast and heavy punk groove that Motorhead applied to heavy metal back in the day. All in all, Bulldozer is the straight up heavy metal hard rock you would expect from Broken Teeth: loud, fast, and smashed in your face with bottle of Lone Star beer.
