Bavarian metalcore unit Resist the Ocean offer up some very solid material on "Heart of the Oak". Plenty of groove, hooks and all that you come to love from metalcore are present throughout the whole album. Gang vocal choruses abound and get a little tiresome at times but still make you wanna scream along every time they announce themselves. There aren't that many clean vocal parts so that is a bit surprising but an element that I'm ok with not being as prevalent as it lends a bit of difference to the genre. Overall this is a fun listen and one that you can chant and pound your fist to.
