“Eros|Anteros” is the breathtaking follow up to Oathbreaker’s critically acclaimed “Maelstrom” album (Deathwish 2011). Where “Maelstrom” acted as individual fragments of aural shrapnel, “Eros|Anteros” is a monstrous shockwave of sound. It is Oathbreaker’s story of love and the anti-love (life and death), and the growth they have experienced through these trials.
In opener “Beeltenis” (Dutch for “Portrait”) layers of melodious guitar cry out to one another through the blackness. Acting as a ghostlike warning before Oathbreaker whips calm to chaos. “No Rest for the Weary” then abruptly crashes forward with breakneck speed and from there the floodgates of “Eros|Anteros” are open. As vocalist Caro Tanghe lets out the hair raising screams of “I’ll never know what it means - this deadly calm inside”, it’s clear that this album is more potent and personal than most heavy music; this is a collective soul searching for the band. This is most apparent in brother and sister songs “As I Look Into the Abyss” and “The Abyss Looks Into Me”. A stunning pairing that shows Oathbreaker racing through razor sharp metallic riffing before erupting into a vicious emotional explosion. This quarrel continues throughout the “Eros|Anteros”, finally coming to a head in the haunting closer “Clair Obscur”. A brilliant eleven minute epic that carefully balances shoe-gaze leanings with their wounded post-metal heart.

What exactly is the point of beating the living shit out of this person when they’ve just flown out of the vehicle? No matter the crime it still wouldn’t make sense to me.
And people wonder why I fucking hate cops.
These aren’t cops, they’re pigs, but yeah the feeling is definitely mutual. Screw them all.
for clarity, i’d suggest a reframing of the question:
Q: What exactly is the point of being a police officer?
A: Being a police officer enables you to taze, shoot, or beat the shit out of anyone—even people who are developmentally disabled, in a wheelchair, pregnant, below the age of consent; man, woman, or child; bound, immobile due to injury, or compliant—without facing any social stigma or punishment.
No more mystery.
so it’s basically where predominantly white dudebros get to be called a hero for beating people up, erhmagod just like in the moviesss~
