Oathbreaker fans rejoice! If you’ve been following this band since its self-titled debut back in 2008, their newest release, Mælstrøm, is finally up for pre-order on Deathwish Inc. on white/brown vinyl, CD, and digital versions. You also get a pretty nifty poster with your order! You can also stream the whole album on the Deathwish Inc. website or here.
I just gave a round of listening to this album and it has already made it to my favorite albums of 2011. The band has certainly matured over the years since its debut. Expect aggression of a certain kind that I have not felt since CELESTE’s MORTE(S) NÉE(S). The titular track, “Mælstrøm”, is definitely a suprise ending to the album; give it a listen because I ain’t gonna spoil it. However, if you any guys have listened to the pre-Oathbreaker band, No Recess, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Some sort of timesink. I hate the term "skramz." Oh, and I suck at writing.

And if you really like an artist/band, show 'em some love and support by buying one of their albums, shirts, stickers, magnets, or whatever; you can even attend one of their shows! These artists put out outstanding records by sacrificing their time and money. The least you could do to help them release more records is get some of their merch, yeah? Not only does buying records help the bands, it also helps out the record labels and distros that make the distributions of these works of art possible.
