Black Tooth was actually formed back in 1996 with Tuna and Deniz starting up an amateur Post-Thrash , Hardcore band named 'Bad Obsession'. The band didn't have any commercial purposes then, and was in a stage of a weekend practice band. As years passed on, Tuna and Deniz decided to move the band to a more serious status, like; start giving concerts. But with the other members' lack of attention the band came to an end.
After 2001, Tuna and Deniz reunited and started searching for new members for their new plan. After a long search they hooked up with Bilgehan as a Bass guitar player. In the summer of 2003, Tuna met with Utku near their summer resort while toasting drinks. After returning back to Ankara, they started practicing and the band got to a better stage with Deniz aiding the band with 2nd Vocals and Samples.
The band had various guitarist problems and after trying out about 12 guitar players, they coincidentally found Onur with the help of friends calling other people they knew. The band started seriously the day they tried out Onur in Downtown, Ankara. In fact, their first song "Clit Hanger" was written that day. Onur automatically brought the name "Black Tooth" with him to his new band. The name Black Tooth was given to directly resemble Pantera's official drink.
