LONG AWAITED VINYL VERSION! Following a vicious four-track demo; Portland’s Ritual Necromancy began the ground-work for their full-length, the soon-to-be titled “Oath of the Abyss.â€ Early on it was quite evident that Ritual Necromancy wasnâ€™t the type of band that was going to lift the spirits of the listener with easy going music. The eerie cover art for â€œOath of the Abyss,â€ created by Josh McAlear, is an early indication of the type of punishing treat the recipient shall receive. With no compromise, â€œOath of the Abyssâ€ is a murky and sinister debut that delivers exhausting and suffocating death metal in spades. Eight tracks; thirty-eight minutes â€“ â€œOath of the Abyssâ€ is a reminder that beneath metalâ€™s crusty exterior lies hidden gems that still can be uncovered if a listener is willing to look hard enough.
