Rose with Teeth is the musical project of Evangeline "angie" Sutherland, an American musician, Oriental Orthodox Christian mystic, writer, and multimedia artist. The project primarily consists of angie, her guitar, and her music software.
Originally, it was formed as an experimental apocalyptic folk project, putting it especially in the vein of bands like Current 93 and Death In June, but has branched out to experiment with many other genres, including industrial and garage rock. Expect "mystical music for traumatised teens".
Her music can be found on Bandcamp.

Rose with Teeth's music contains the following tropes:
- Apocalypse Wow: "The Idols Have Been Cast Down and Rent".
- As the Good Book Says...: The liner notes to The Idols Have Been Cast Down and Rent consist of quotations from the Book of Revelation.
- Break the Cutie: "Bloody Red Roses (Sirkha)".
- Broken Bird: angie herself.
- Chummy Commies: angie is very open about being a left communist, or more precisely a communiser of the Endnotes variety.
- Concept Album
- Censored Title: "H******e".
- Echoing Acoustics
- Literary Allusion Title: Many track titles and much of the lyrics on her albums, as well as the project name itself (a reference to a line from Ludwig Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations.)
- Not Christian Rock: If it ever is rock, it's acoustic, experimental, and incredibly dark (but it's best called apocalyptic folk.)
- Old Shame: "Convention of Corruption", subtitled in retrospect with "(don't listen to this lol it's bad)".
- Outsider Music: Self-described.
- Shout-Out: The album art of The Idols Have Been Cast Down and Rent is an intentional pastiche of David Tibet of Current 93's painting style.
- The Cover Changes the Meaning: Her version of the Chilean socialist song "Venceremos", closing The Idols Have Been Cast Down and Rent, changes references to Chile to references to the world at large, and is sung by contributors from all over the world.
- Three Chords and the Truth
- World of Symbolism
