Four friends from the Spanish town of Almeria founded The Dry Mouths in the year of our lord 2006. In 2010 they released their debut effort called Lost Bow Case Eckard and 2012 saw the release of their sophomore album weirdly entitled: Moons True Delay Length Wah Foo Era. The album starts with a full throttle guitar assault that recalls the nineties alternative rock glory with a metal twist. This quickly dissipates into something more melodic yet obscurely structured; with intelligent turns and technical breaks. Slowly but surely the album starts to make its mark and leaves you breathless in the sheer possibilities these four guys tick off; without ever delving in too deep. It leaves you with a broad horizon of alternative rock and experimental metal that shakes the intestines. On some moments it sounds like a grungier and simpler version of Tool and on others they come across as a heavier and paradoxically melodic Seattle born formation. We can’t wait to hear their third record set to be released later this year!
