OATHBREAKER – rheia – VINYL 2xLP (black)

deathwish records 2016

24,90

« Rheia » is the groundbreaking album from Belgium’s Oathbreaker. Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Loma Prieta), « Rheia » is a true game changer for the genre. Blurring lines and dissolving the boundaries of heavy music as we know it today.


Opener « 10:56 » begins with a haunting guitar riff and Caro Tanghe’s beautifully sung vocal before abruptly soaring to new heights with « Second Son of R ». Its blasts of melody mutate into a blackened buzz while waves of tempo changes pound down with intense emotional weight. « Being Able To Feel Nothing » then rolls in like a storm. Chaotically breaking apart to reveal the eye before churning once again. « Stay Here / Accroche-Moi » is an otherworldly reverb drenched acoustic number that leads to « Needles In Your Skin ». A deeply personal song that showcases the artistic strength vulnerability brings. It’s hard to believe that this is just the half way point of this post everything masterwork. « Immortals » then unfurls as a goose bump inducing monster. This leads to the ambitious « I’m Sorry, This Is », « Where I Live », and « Where I Leave”; A musical triptych that needs to be heard to be believed. All of it comes to an end with mesmerizing closer « Begeerte ». Ethereally materializing before vanishing into the beautiful unknown.
