"The Long Island prog-metal band bursts with enthusiasm and rabid energy, as if Mastodon's apocalyptic visions were replaced with cosmic wonder."


"Groove-laden... Rife with frustration, riffs and a celebratory, soaring overtone..."

"The Long Island, NY, quartet have all the grind and groan that one wants from a heavy metal track, but their use of clean vocals, uplifting riffs, and humongous choruses save them from the acrobatic and esoteric sides of the genre... Fans of both Strapping Young Lad and Deftones will find parts of their music to get down to."

"Metallicized hard rock so enticing we’re convinced it emits pheromones. [Moon Tooth] combines visceral harmonies, punkish verve, funkish boogie, throbbing aggression, and arena-rock-worthy hooks to create something unique and instantly memorable."


"Arguably one of the most original metal bands out there."
–Metal Injection

"Electrifying, bluesy, and highly original progressive metal... Walking the line between challenging and accessible... This is one of the best progressive records of the decade. Get on it."

–Invisible Oranges

"As with 'Chromaparagon' before it, 'Crux' is technically brilliant, with all musicians delivering intricate and meticulously played parts... Moon Tooth's stirring energy and optimism are incredibly infectious. Densely packed but never overdone, 'Crux' is an inspiring and uplifting distillation of modern rock."

–Echoes and Dust

"Spearheaded by Nick Lee's pyrotechnic guitar work and John Carbone's bottle rocket vox, 'Crux' comes across like Torche hopped up on trucker pills and John Petrucci guitar DVDs..."
–Free Williamsburg

"Razor-edged hard rock/metal that is as aggressive as it is memorable."
–Nine Circles

"Moon Tooth came swinging out of the gate in 2016 with their debut full-length, 'Chromaparagon'... One moment you're rocking out to stoner with mild psych touches, the next you're headbanging to progressive metal... Now, three years later, they have a brand new full-length titled 'Crux' for us to absorb... To say that Moon Tooth outdid themselves with 'Crux' is an understatement."
–Heavy Blog Is Heavy

"'Crux' is the carefree stage dive from a concert stage. It's the invigorating rush of jumping into a cold pool after you've been boiled by summer heat all day."
–Everything Is Noise

"This band is pouring everything they have into making a name for themselves and it shows on 'Crux.' There’s not a single thing I dislike about these 43 minutes and I can’t stop listening to it."
–Toilet ov Hell

"'Crux' is truly a work of art."
