3TEETH Premiere “Merchant Of The Void” Music Video


Tool-approved industrial metal outfit 3TEETH have kicked off a monthly series of new tracks with the arrival of “Merchant Of The Void“. Those songs will culminate in the eventual release of their new album later this year via Century Media. Notably, several of the songs set for inclusion on that effort were produced by composer Mick Gordon of ‘DOOM‘, etc. fame.

A music video for this new single—the band’s first in several years—was overseen by Matteo Santoro. Speaking of the track itself, vocalist Alexis Mincolla offered:

“Amidst the numbing pulse of hypermodernity, the insatiable appetite of data commodification devours our sense of meaning. The undead march of materialism eventually renders the human subject an automaton, desperately grasping for the ephemeral junk 2.0 to fill the abyss of existential emptiness.

The self devolves into a mere echo, a ghostly specter caught in the whirlwind of techno-capital acceleration, the very essence of its being devoured by the machinery of its own weaponized desires. If the future eludes your vision, fear not, The Merchant of The Void is standing by and eager to sell it to you.

Welcome to the cold descent into the black hole of total absolute commodification. In the words of William S. Burrough ‘The junk merchant doesn’t sell his product to the consumer, he sells the consumer to his product. He does not improve and simplify his merchandise. He degrades and simplifies the client.”

Work on the band’s as-yet unannounced new album continues, with producer Nick Rowe and mixer Sean Beavan also involved in the sessions. Gordon himself commented his involvement:

3TEETH are one of my favorite acts. They proudly fly their own unique flag. The new album charts course through the next stage of our vanity-led evolution as a species, and by that I mean the album is a world unto itself. I’m just stoked that these guys have allowed me along for the ride.”
