Teeph are a three piece band from Chico, California. ”Solid Jobs” ep which was released on the 29th of May is their newest release. Their music is a blend of sludge, mathcore and some post metal also.
The album contains five tracks. First track is called ”Nails and String”. It was a real surprise to me because i thought that bands didn’t play like that anymore. Remember Cave In? Those guys have totally changed their sound. Anyway, the thing is that the track is really heavy and it has some awesome basslines. ”Marijuana Chaos” which comes next has an amazing intro. It also has some nice post parts. ”Spirit Animal Planet” is one hell of a song. In my opinion this track shows how a band can combine so perfectly its influences. ”We are the Times New Romans” is the album’s fourth track. Well, once Botch said that they were the Romans. I don’t know if it has something to do with that. One thing i know is that this track is my favorite from ”Solid Jobs”. I love those sludgy riffs. ”Job Creationism” is the album’s fifth song. It’s a really cool song with nice, atmospheric post parts.
This is an excelent release. It’s one of the best albums i’ve heard in months. I’ve never heard before a band blending so perfectly sludge, mathcore and post metal. Listen to ”Solid Jobs” and find out for yourself. Here are some lins about Teeph and ”Solid Jobs” ep:
