Santa Cruz, California — OnTheAttack Records is pleased to announce that Rochester, New York, based Rhema is the latest to join the OTA family of bands. Stylistically, Rhema is a hybrid of sorts, layering elements of often dark, emotional hardcore over early metallic hardcore. At times fast… at times emotive and angst- ridden. Always powerful. Lyrically, Rhema deals with difficult issues and raw personal struggles of band members with an unfiltered and sometimes painful honesty.
Formed in August 2013, Rhema features Jonathan Barefoot (guitars), David McPherson (vocals), Caleb Barefoot (drums) and Adam Kramer (bass). Rhema has plans to enter the studio in the coming months for a full scale release later this year.
The band’s debut 5 song demo EP is released earlier this month [May 4th], a free copy can be downloaded at their bandcamp page. You can find our album review at this location.
OnTheAttack Records began in the Bronx in 2005, and moved to California in 2013. Same heavy music… Same uplifting message.
