Daath are not all that they appear to be.
On the surface they’re just another death metal band but scratch that surface, however seething and angry it might seem, and you find concepts and thoughtfulness rarely seen in such depth. The lyrical content of The Hinderers is heavily influenced by the Jewish belief system, the much-publicised Kaballah and Da’at in particular.
That’s all well and chin-strokingly good, but heavy metal’s all about being a beer-swilling meathead and rocking the hell out. Right? Of course not, but while Daath [pronounced ‘Doth’, as in GOTH] seem to have their ideologies and designs well mapped out, do they have the rock chops to match?
