Belgium's progressive heavy music outfit Oathbreaker have recently released one of 2016's most groundbreaking albums, Rheia, via Deathwish Inc. Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Loma Prieta), Rheia blurs lines and dissolves the boundaries of heavy music as we know it today.
Oathbreaker, who formed in 2008 in Ghent, Belgium, released their debut full-length Maelstrom in 2011 on Deathwish, which was followed by the critically-acclaimed Eros Anteros full-length in 2013. On Rheia, Oathbreaker have unveiled a deeply personal album that showcases the artistic strength that vulnerability brings.
