ORATORY Debut EP ‘Inner Pyre’ EP Out Now and Streaming!


Australian extremists ORATORY have released debut EP Inner Pyre. Purchase and/or stream it below!

The EP features the band’s toxic audio cocktail of death metal, sludge, and hardcore, one that results in the battering of senses and laceration of the soul! You’ve been warned.

“A battering of senses across a trio of blunt force trauma-inducing creations, this is the Sludge Metal equivalent of a tectonic plate shift.”
-Metal Noise

 “A work of Neanderthal genius, ‘Inner Pyre’ burns with a LOT of potential and it has become a much played piece in the Killchain’s humble home. Fuck yes.
– The Killchain

“A mix of Extreme Metal brewed in an original way that doesn’t sound at all artificial.” (8.5/10)
– Bathory Zine

“Erecting a cult center for the most profane specimens of death metal.” (8.5/10)
– Dargedik Rock Metal Webzine

In the band’s own words:
Inner Pyreis a collection of hymns outlining the darker parts of our psyche. The mounting bleakness for all the grief life throws you. Capitulation Genuflect places a ‘God’ label on beliefs and stances that engrave your mind, beyond reproach. To be haunted by God in that sense is an eternal drip of ticking dread. On this EP we’ve taken our inspiration from Celtic Frost, Dismember, Trouble, Autopsy, Sepultura, Motorhead and Japanese hardcore bands like Death Side and Forward. The EP was recorded and mixed over seven months at Eternity Ward studios.”
