OATHEAN - FADING AWAY INTO THE GRAVE OF NOTHINGNESS - THE END
Nothing, absolutely nothing, better describes this band and its album than the album's title. This is so hideous that one feels embarrassed for the members and their relatives. Can you say mass suicide?
A Korean band ripping off the worst aspects of third generation poseur 'metal' of Dimmu Borgir and Cradle Of Filth is bad enough. The addition of other feeble-minded anti-metal elements like flute and Korean folk music to standard issue insults like female vocals and gothic whining all to the tune of a thin buzz of a guitar proves that Oriental sheep are as mindless as their Western counterparts.
Notice to Oathean fans! It's official. The band's new album will from now on be exclusively available at the children's section of your record store. - Ali "The Metallian"
