"Rahab" was released with Solid State Records as Earth Groan's 2nd EP. It features JT Cavey of Erra on the first track. The title is based on the biblical character of the same name.
Earth Groans (vocalist Jeremy Schaeffer, guitarist Zachariah Mayfield, bassist Kayden Burton, and drummer Brady Mueller) is quickly becoming one of modern metal’s diamonds in the rough; their chaotic brand of metal draws from hardcore, metalcore, deathcore and every aggressive, off-kilter feature between them, making for a sonic siege of metal that you’d be hard-pressed to find a comparison to. With their newest offering “Rahab”, it’s clear the train isn’t stopping any time soon. (Stichedsound.com Spencer Prather)
The release's five tracks tread the line between pummeling metal and thoughtful introspection quite effectively. Listeners can either listen for the lyrics, the music, or both at the same time. That phenomena pretty much defines metalcore like Earth Groans makes at times; the band just elevates it to a new height. To use a convenient explanation, they sound like the perfect band to be served by the same label, Solid State, that has handled popular alternative metal/metalcore trailblazers like Underoath.
