The band Oathbreaker formed in 2008 in Belgium. In this episode, Caro and Gilles from the band break down the two-part song that opens their third album, Rheia. These two tracks, 10:56 and Second Son of R., were written and performed as one song. They talk about how and why their sound transformed from a pure hardcore band to something amalgamated with shoegaze, and Caro talks about her own evolution as a vocalist and a lyricist, writing candidly about her own past.
