Albums Of The Week: Baited | Cutting Teeth EP

The P.E.I. punks prove they can thrash and bash with the best of ’em on their second release. More importantly, they also prove they can write songs that stick to your ribs.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Cutting teeth is Baited being their most rowdy and chaotic selves. Their first release was still energetic but had moments of sorrow. This release is Baited balls to the wall. No holding back.

Baited are a hardcore punk band that formed in 2022 and hail from Charlottetown, P.E.I. Fueled by a shared love for the relentless energy of punk rock, they thrive in mosh pits and dive bars alike, tipping bartenders and sending shoes across the bar. In the depths of Charlottetown, Baited emerged from smoky basements and cramped practice spaces. Their sound, a blistering blend of fast-paced riffs, pounding drums, and angst-ridden vocals, set mosh pits ablaze.

Cutting Teeth, track by track:

Fall | The heaviest song with their gnarliest breakdown yet. Very jumpy and sludgy, which is an unusual combo.

Molotov | Molotov is the banger it’s the first released single and the song the band is most proud of. It’s the band’s mission statement.

Fugue State | The most melodic song. This was the first song Baited wrote for this EP. It’s a mix between our recent sound and our last record. Very old-school Rise Against instrumentals with skramz and punk vocals.

Blackout | This song is meant for the two-step. With punchy and fizzy guitar and bass tones. This song just doesn’t quit.

Cutting Teeth | Riffage continues while Chris continues to shove down your throat what the band is about.

KCCW | Spacy EP outro to tie this short experience together and leave them wanting more.”
