There are times when I hop online just to check my e-mail, only to crawl away from my computer several hours later, having been sucked into a Web vortex—mostly I end up wasting precious time on YouTube fodder, but I try to make up for that every so often by instead finding some great new band to obsess over.

My latest discovery is LA metal group Mountain of Teeth, whose “Thanking the Empty Heavens” is today’s 12 O’Clock Track.
