sometimes you are unexpectedly confronted with a group that has NEXT-LEVEL INTENSITY and BALTIMORE's SHARPTOOTH is that band. this REVERED HARDCORE PUNK ensemble has two STELLAR full-length's on PURE NOISE RECORDS and are led by the UNADULTERATED BRUTALITY of vocalist LAUREN KASHAN, who has utilized her position as a POSITIVE vehicle to both sublimate her TRAUMA and advocate on behalf of TRAUMA victims to seek MENTAL HEALTH assistance. i think such action takes REAL COURAGE and is indicative of the CHARACTER behind both KASHAN and her bandmates. recently the band has moved on to new vocalist MELISSA WARD who likewise brings the UNBRIDLED FEROCITY, plus they have a song called "FUCK YOU DONALD TRUMP" so what is there not to love? definitely looking forward to what the new lineup cooks up.
SHARPTOOTH is definitely worth checking out.
