As the earth shook and the ground parted, so did the gates to another world open, spewing forth demons of the Blackest of the Black. Bands, fans, vendors and the occasional celebrity descended upon Oak Canyon Park—a quaint little camping spot nestled in the hills of Silverado, California—for the Blackest of the Black Festival. This gathering of the depraved and debauched was the brainchild of none other than Jersey native and trailblazer of horror punk and doom-goth-metal, Glenn Danzig.

Industrial music has recently had quite resurgence when it comes to popularity and creative output. The likes of Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails have maintained huge, euphoric fan support throughout their careers (with the latter of course reforming in recent years), whilst the likes of Combichrist have continued to show just how diverse and immediate a style it can be.

Los Angeles industrial rockers 3TEETH will be opening the upcoming Tool and Primus dates in January, with dates posted below.
Commented vocalist Alexis Mincolla:
We feel so very honored to have been picked by Tool to hit the road; we’re ready to bleed for these crowds. Make sure you come early.
Added Tool guitarist Adam Jones:
“We are extremely excited and proud to have 3TEETH join us on the road for the next month’s extravaganza. Combining the styles of Tool and 3TEETH at a live show will result in a naturally induced chemical overload of sonic and visual horripilation. I love electronic metal and got totally addicted to 3TEETH ever since I saw them play at the Viper Room here in Los Angeles. They are a brutal and intense entity dripping with talent on stage and I can’t wait for our fans to witness the mayhem for themselves.
