Dreams of Consciousness has been on the Teeth hype train since their Unremittance debut and their subsequent split 7" with Fister. The California band represent the evolution of "dissonant death metal", taking the influence of Gorguts and Immolation, while giving it their own unorthodox, convention-defying spin.

I spoke with Teeth guitarist/vocalist Erol Ulug about the "Nuns With Guns" tattoo that led to his long collaboration with his bandmate, Justin Moore, and how their previous band Wageslave shaped Teeth's musical direction. We also discussed his jazz background, and the challenges he faced as both a band member and studio engineer/producer during the creation of the band's latest EP, Finite.

My thanks to Erol for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
