The rock songwriter WAX MEKANIX and the alternative hard rockers TROLL TEETH announced to have joined their artistic efforts in a new split-EP entitled Blunt – set to be released on October 22nd via Electric Talon Records!
In this EP lasting almost 15 minutes, the three tracks by WAX MEKANIX illustrate a striking sonic and thematic evolution for this American rock artist. As if to invite them to follow his lead onward into bountiful undiscovered musical territory, Wax’s diverse, open-minded, brave, and adventurous audience are presented with “Head”, “Manchester Strawberry Blonde”, and “Freak Boutique”. Tribal, exotic, mysterious, fearless, contemporaneous connective tissue between what has come before and whatever Wax sees on his creative horizon. The two songs “The Pigs Are on Parade Today” and “Barbs On A Wire” by TROLL TEETH show a more stoner and metal attitude (as seen from the long guitar solos) while the lyrics have a sarcastic tone, almost bordering on nihilism.
