Oathbreaker "Rheia"

Quite possibly the noisiest record of the year, Oathbreaker make amends with their audience by delivering what they've been up to moments after Eros Anteros wrapped up. 
     There are instances when the hardcore outfit is at its most creative. These are times of great breakbeat two step and proper vocal cadence. But the majority of the album just sounds like assorted gnashing and wailing, which although is a great form of artistic expressions, doesn't make for a cohesive album to blare while cruising down Eastern Parkway. The crisp production and superb packaging are welcome, but with this random expression of thoughts and aggression, the album is far too challenging to engage for the average hardcore enthusiast.
