Album Notes
Oathbreaker is a concept album. We don’t want to give away too many details concerning the story; we want you to experience it for yourselves. However, we can say that this album follows the story of an individual from his conception and follows him down a path that grows darker and darker. In fact, this was the influence for the album. We wanted to create something that sounded mighty and hopeful in the beginning but spiraled into dreary, black despair by the end. Each of the songs on the album compliment the following and preceding tracks to weave a complex story of broken hopes, evil, and corruption. The beginning of the album will fill you with an anxious hope, because as the listener you will be able to sense the undertones of corruption and impending ruination, and by the end of the album you will experience the same agony that our central character feels. Oathbreaker is a melancholy, but powerfully beautiful journey into depths of despair that examines the very building blocks of good versus evil.

This album was conceived in the cold, bleak winter months of 2013. Many tracks went through revisions and rewrites, some seemingly solid ideas were scrapped because they did not tell the story we wanted to tell. Sometimes we would have to go back to a song months after we had recorded it to change a part, add a part, or take away a part. When you listen, you are hearing our vision come to life. This is the consummate Hoth album. Oathbreaker will prove to be a strong album from beginning to end, no corners cut, no filler tracks. Each song on this album is unique and possesses strength enough individually to stand on its own, but they also complement each other: sharing ideas, themes, and feelings. Oathbreaker has both haunting melodies and crushingly brutal passages that will be memorable for years to come. The writing on this album was a truly collaborative one, both of us, with a clear goal in mind, were able to share ideas back and forth, build off one another, and explore Oathbreaker’s themes with a joined perspective.

The story Oathbreaker tells is a timeless one. Enjoy.
