Cut Your Teeth – “Stallion”

. . .

Videos are the best way to promote bands now. They have more impact than streaming audio, and they’re more easily embeddable everywhere. The technology behind them gets cheaper by the day. A band could make a decent HD video using only a Flip camera, which starts at around $100 USD.

For a little more, one could get the HD Hero, which is made to be mounted. With the right attachments, it could be a helmet cam, a surfboard cam, a moving vehicle cam, or a tow line cam. The front page video on manufacturer GoPro’s site offers a breathtaking demonstration of the camera’s capabilities. Check out some jaw-dropping extreme sports footage here.

Naturally, a band has found a use for the HD Hero. New York hardcore outfit Cut Your Teeth filmed their video for “Stallion” using it. (See above.) It looks like they just mounted it in a few places, took a few takes with it, and had a blast with it. So we get headstock cams (one of my favorite cheesy music video devices) on guitar and bass, as well as some head cam shots. The video is no cinematic masterpiece, but it’s quick, dirty, and perfect.

Cut Your Teeth have an old-school vibe that I dig – early ’90s NYHC with thrash influences (and a guitarist who’s probably a closet shred nerd), but before the whole metalcore revolution/plague. You can stream and download their absolutely ripping demo for free here. A self-released record is due out next month. I’m looking forward to more ass-kicking, edge-breaking teeth cutting.
