Oathean  


Oathean is certainly not the only Korean metal band in existence, but it's a rare feat when a Korean metal band releases an album outside their homeland, and these guys have done that with their 2005 release Fading Away Into The Grave Of Nothingness, released on the very respected The End label. They've been criticized by some as being little more than a pale copy of melodic bands such as Dimmu Borgir -- yes, this is a melodic black metal band to be sure, and much of their work isn't wildly original, but there are nice touches such as some graceful female vocals and the occasional interesting keyboard flourish. Oathean aren't in the same league as the big boys yet, but they have done well to make it this far in their career, and there's certainly potential that has yet to be untapped.
