Oathean
Fading Away Into The Grave of Nothingness (The End Records)

By: Mike SOS

Usually not associated with the death/black metal genre, Korea's Oathean is putting the country on the map with its brand of folksy yet scolding metal. Furthering the proof that music is indeed the universal language, this quintet's 11-track offering displays a scathing death metal battering on tracks like "The Origin" that would make Cradle of Filth or Dimmu Borgir fans stand up and take notice. There's also traces of folklore a la bands like Skyclad (especially evident from the keyboard parts) that allows Othean to stand out more than your average black metal crew. If you're looking for an album capable of ripping your head off, but not in the way you've grown accustomed to, then Othean's worldwide debut is a noteworthy release to pick up.
