The Oath that Keeps Me Free
Legendary (and now reunited) straight-edge, metalcore titans Earth Crisis recorded a live set in Dec. 97 at Hungry Charlie’s in Syracuse, NY. The show was a benefit for guitarist Kris Weichmann’s ailing father. The recording of that evening became Earth Crisis’ live album The Oath that Keeps Me Free.
The set is mostly material from Gomorrah’s Season Ends and earlier. This is a terrific snapshot of Earth Crisis, right before MTV came calling. The album’s sound quality is superb. On that particular night, Earth Crisis BROUGHT IT.
This is a moment for all the 30-something straight-edgers to rejoice. Don’t worry, freaks, mosh junkies and weirdoes are also invited to this party. The three songs Earth Crisis plays to close the show are devastating. This is highly recommended.
