Hoth – Oathbreaker

A metal concept album about the notorious Star Wars villain Darth Vader may seem like a bit of a stretch, but Washington's Hoth manage to illicit enough intrigue on their independently released Oathbreaker.  The band consists of two shadowy members Eric and David who play a pretty devastating form of melodic black/death metal coupled with a solid … [Read more...]
