Breaking out of the far reaches of South Austin, Scythian Oath released their 'Shadow Of The Torturer' demo in late 1985.  This recording earned the band high praise from such revered Texas underground publications as Cerebral Devastation, Axe Attack, and Death And Destruction Zine.  A unique mixture of power, thrash, and progressive stylings 'Shadow Of The Torturer' set Scythian Oath apart in the sometimes crowded field of mid-1980's Texas metal.
