Ceremonial Oath Announces Digital Re-Issue For "The Book Of Truth"

Sweden's pioneers of twisted melodic death metal Ceremonial Oath will release their debut album, "The Book Of Truth," as a digital download in North America on April 16th via Century Media Records.

Besides the album tracks found on "The Book Of Truth," this download will also include all tracks from the super rare demos, "Wake The Dead" and "Black Sermon" (on which Ceremonial Oath was still performing under the band's previous moniker Desecrator), as well as the two tracks from the "Lost Name Of God" 7" (originally released on Corpse Grinder Records in 1992). The following press release was also issued:

"The Book Of Truth doesn't follow the usual melodic approach that many bands from the Gothenburg scene established during the heyday of the scene from 1994-1999. Being neither pure Gothenburg melodic death metal nor typical old school Swedish death metal in the Stockholm vein, but more a fine mélange of both worlds, spiced-up with some technical finesse a la Morbid Angel and Nocturnus, The Book Of Truth has justly become a classic death metal album. To this day, the sound of Ceremonial Oath has remained surprisingly fresh and unique."
