Bucket Full Of Teeth

Bucket Full of Teeth were kind of an anomaly in the hardcore scene. It seems they barely even cared at all, as they willingly whip through just about every kind of agressive music you can think of, mostly in 30 second segments, often bleeding into a short ambient passage that can prove to be either spooky or dreamy, and sometimes both.
A few minutes of listening to any of the first three 7"s (appropriately tiled to create the full artwork below) will take you from blast beat oriented power violence with slashing and zig zagging guitars to a subterranean doom metal riff that gradualy builds steam into a swirling, albeit, jagged stoner rock mini epic, landing you squarely into a war cry of tech death metal in the style of Converge, kick your head in with a few more spastic blast beats and grind a la Orchid (after all, the two major contributing members were Orchids guitarist and bassist) and last but not least leaving you on a spacy signal transmission, all Brian Eno ambience and Sunn 0))) darkness.
Considering most of the songs last less than a minute, youre guaranteed a wild ride through some of the more inventive agressive music of the past decade. The fourth and final album, is a realization of the aformentioned styles and composed with more grace and a better production. But my moneys still on the first three records.

Thanks for this. Looks very promising. I'd like to download it. But MegaUpload no longer works for Belgian users... If you'd care to upload it to another site? Thanks in advance and keep surprising us with your great selections!

These guys KILL.

I was a huge Orchid fan, and have always appreciated their take on spastic hardcore. Keeping the early 90s San Diego inspired sound alive (Grivity Records, et al).

I know this post is soooo late, but I just found your amazing blog yesterday to my great delight! Assfactor 4 were actually from Columbia, S.C. which is important since they served as a furious and irreverent counterforce to the influence of Baptist religiosity on the hardcore/punk scene in the South. They were generous folks, both with their material possessions and their scathing sarcasm! I toured with Policy of 3 through the South and played a show with A-4, who incidentally were well-loved by Kevin Sabarese of Old Glory Records/guitarist for Iconoclast.
