Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
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.
