Dead Oath (Dropout)


so this is by far my favorite rediscovery/demo this year. dead oath is basically most of dropout. dropout put out a fantastic hm2, dbeat, metal, punk album a few years ago which i remember downloading and then it just ended up getting pushed to the back and forgotten about. stupid move on my part. then with an even dumber move it got deleted(to my credit, i was probably drunk. thanks to deadwintermoon for hooking me up with a new download) in a hard drive cleanout.  so anyway a couple months ago while looking through the immense piles of shit on bandcamp i came across dropout again but noticed theyd changed the name on the album cover to dead oath. then i found the demo of dead oath. this shit is ridiculously good. the absolute perfect combo of dbeat, death metal, and hardcore. like up there with mammoth grinder good. even though the demo is only 2 songs its going to end up on my year end list. cant wait for more from these guys.


the dropout bandcamp still has the lp up on there but since theyve changed their name im not sure how active it is. the lp is available on discogs. thats where i bought it. either way, go buy it.

Genre: Post Hardcore, Punk, Indie Rock

Tracks: 10
Length: 29.45'


Drug Church is a five piece band from Albany, NY who formed in the spring of 2011.  Drug Church features members of Self Defense Family, which for most of you, is pretty much a household name in the punk/hardcore scene at this point.  The thing I love most about Drug Church is that they pretty much carry the torch that was originally ignited by End Of The Year before they morphed into Self Defense Family, meaning that Drug Church hits the frenetic, witty, snotty, and sarcastic spectrum of punk that originally made End Of A Year so endearing to me.  With that said, that description pretty much only scratches the surface of describing Drug Church's sound.  Drug Church also adds a healthy dose of dark punk, post hardcore, and indie rock that gives nods to bands such as Jawbreaker, Quicksand, Seaweed, and other like-minded bands.  Since forming in 2011, Drug Church have released a self-titled demo in Mach of 2011, a self-titled EP in July of 2012, a ten song LP titled Paul Walker in July of 2013, a five song EP titled Swell in February of 2015, and an eleven song LP titled Hit Your Head in October of 2015.  Cheer is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via Pure Noise Records on November 2nd of 2018.   On Cheer, Drug Church offer up ten tracks of witty, sarcastic, and snotty post hardcore, punk, and indie rock.  Cheer totally resonates with me on so many levels, that it's scary.  Cheer does two things for me: It makes me realize how shitty things can be for people, simultaneously makes me want to check myself into rehab, yet gives me enough hope to realize that my futile existence is worthwhile if I surround myself with the right people and enough beer to keep my mind numb.  Overall, Cheer is probably one of the best albums of 2018.  Don't sleep on this one.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
