Oathbreaker (BE) (Innenstadt, Bollwerk)
Faster than fast, brutal and loud, that’s Oathbreaker, an avant-garde post-metal quartet founded in Ghent in 2008. Singer/screamer Caro Tanghe melodiously intones sensitive, poetic Gothic texts, only to launch into a furious maelstrom of primitive vocal power with her spine-chilling screams in the next moment. These radical oscillations between serene and tempestuous passages are also central to the band’s compositions and fuel Oathbreaker’s persistent shape-shifting between any and all genres that bring the heavy, from black metal to hardcore all the way to doom – with expeditions to sublime islands of folk, ambient and a capella elements in between.
