From the hollow beauty of “10:56”, to the sprawling melancholia of “Begeerte”, Oathbreaker‘s third full-length record Rheia grips the listener’s attention tight and doesn’t let go until the end of its 60-minute runtime. The Belgian quartet began life crafting vitriolic metallic hardcore anthems, most notably heard on their 2008 self-titled EP, and in a short amount of time have evolved into something new entirely. Though their experimentation with black metal and ambient music can be heard in each subsequent release since their first EP, seemingly reaching its apex on 2013’s Eros/Anteros, listeners will still not expect what Rheia delivers no matter how carefully they studied the band’s back catalog. Oathbreaker went out of their way to create an album that truly defines them and will undeniably be considered their magnum opus..

Engineered, mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Loma Prieta), the band’s third album features 10 tracks of self-reflective blackened metal/hardcore.
