SCISSORTOOTH has teamed up with Bravewords.com to promote their single ‘10 30’off of their full-length ‘Novagomorrah’ released on July 28th via Galy Records. Contrary to how the track name appears, it is in fact a calendar date — October 30 otherwise known as the Devil’s Night, which is an integral part of the 1994 film The Crow. Vancouver’s old school thrashers had this to say about the song.
“‘10 30’ is the Devil’s night! What started as a jokey “oldies metal” riff became one of our favorite songs to play. Lyrics were inspired from a “Paradise Lost” quote in the movie The Crow and just the primeval urge of wanting to destroy everything around you and see it burn. The song maintains a solid pace and weight, it always slams hard live and we can’t wait to play it on tour. Thank you to Bravewords for hosting this track and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do” – Derek Lunblad,Guitar and Vocals.
‘Novagomorrah’ is just under 1 hour (58 min total) spread over tracks engineered and mixed by the band’s own, Shawn Hoskins, and mastered by Vancouver’s Greg Mindorff at Suite Sound Labs (Biff Naked, D.O.A., Finger 11). Their sound embodies the aggressive, yet groovy feeling of early Pantera braised with industrial samples throughout the album.

Scissortooth is a Canadian Thrash Metal band from Vancouver, B.C.. Formed in 2003 by Derek Lundblad (Vocalist/guitarist) and Shawn Hoskins (drummer), formerly from Mantra, moved to the west coast from Grande Prairie, A.B.. The current line-up comprises of founding members Lundblad, Hoskins, and Ken Firomski (bassist), Ken (Empyria and Cradle to Grave) who moved from Granisle B.C.. (Empyria and Cradle to Grave).
The band’s melodic hooks, varying tempos, and aggressive musicianship alongside of original writing approach and unique timbre has given their songs a different edge to most modern acts. Influenced by a wide spectrum of sounds of bands like Pantera, Metallica, Megadeth, Type O Negative to Soundgarden, Tool, Pink Floyd and Nine Inch Nails have lent to the songwriting and arrangements a flavor that fills a void in today’s often bland musical climate.
Their debut full length, Novagomorrah is scheduled to be release July 28, 2015.

“I really got a Mastodon, like The Sword kind of vibe from your music”-Tiny and Plankman Show on Tap Detroit
“Scissortooth, a Canadian band hailing from Vancouver, have found the way to really transport listeners to the past, during thrash metal’s “death” years, when it struggled to find new ears. They take the genre and blend it with the music that was killing thrash, and metal in general: grunge, via Alice in Chains, who were the “metalhead’s grunge”, and even Soundgarden.” – Crown of Viserys
“Erupting in a very Static X sounding intro, the album quickly descends into a heated, thrashy fervor. Fasted paced triplets, driving rhythms and expansive vocal wails create an atmosphere immediately reminiscent of the thrash metal glory days of olde. “ – Canadian Beats
