by Greg PratoIn the wake of Soundgarden's breakthrough success in the '90s, several groups decided to follow in the famed Seattle quartet's footsteps with a similar heavy Sabbath-esque sound. One such band was the trio Sugartooth -- Mark Hutner (vocals, guitar) and Josh Blum (bass) were the group's mainstays, joined by a pair of different drummers (Joey Castillo and Dusty Watson) during their short career. The seeds of the band were planted in the early '90s when Hutner and Blum met each other while fronting separate rock bands in the Southern California area. With grunge sound-alikes getting signed left and right (Candlebox, Paw, Seven Mary Three, etc.), Sugartooth had no problem landing a deal with DGC, who issued the band's self-titled debut in 1994. The album spawned a modest MTV hit with the track "Sold My Fortune," as the group opened shows for such big name acts as Slayer, Supersuckers, Stone Temple Pilots, and their heroes, Soundgarden.
