Album Description:

In the dynamic world of music, few genres offer the intensity and raw energy that punk and metal bring to the table. When these two genres collide, the result is often a sonic explosion that captivates listeners and leaves an indelible mark. OAK, a rising force in the punk metal scene, has managed to harness this explosive energy on their self-titled 12" Vinyl EP, encapsulated in a meticulously designed gatefold cover.

A Confluence of Genres

Punk and metal may seem like disparate genres, but they share a certain rebellious spirit and a penchant for pushing boundaries. OAK's self-titled EP masterfully blends the frenetic pace and DIY ethos of punk with the crushing heaviness and intricate guitar work of metal. The result is a sonic tapestry that alternates between breakneck punk-infused riffs and headbanging metal grooves, creating an adrenaline-fueled listening experience that is both visceral and addictive.

Gatefold Cover: Visualizing the Experience
