“Radare’s music calls no attention to itself, but shines the spotlight on unwritten stories. As such, it is both fully present and fully absent, a Schrödinger’s set of songs.“ (A Closer Listen)
“While Radare present themselves as monochromatic miserablists, there’s a colour and energy within their music that says much about their varied musical skills. ‘Im Argen’ works as an album around the dynamic that the four musicians create between themselves, and an impressive performance it is.” (Tasty Fanzine)

The music on Rheia works in tandem with the lyrics to paint a picture of love and hate overlapped, and the effort to reconcile the two. This is an astounding work that forced me through that process, from resignation to resistance to resolution and acceptance.
I think this album would be a pretty good intro to black metal for someone who might listen to rock but is wary of taking the plunge! There's a really nice variety of clean and harsh vocals and harder and softer tracks here. menee
The whole entire album is great, but I just want to talk about my favorite track. A Solitary Reign is so emotionally raw. Once I heard it, I was moved to tears. The soft vocals, the harsh vocals, and the heavy guitar playing is top notch on this track. So emotive as heck! Lanna E
