Desolate Kings: The Oracle Anthology is the first ever comprehensive release of North Carolina cult heavy metal band, ORACLE. Featuring a then youthful Shawn Pelata on vocals (current member of Line Of Fire), the band existed between the years 1990-1993 and released two demos and a critically acclaimed EP entitled, Selah.
There have been previous issues of Selah released almost half-heartedly, but Divebomb Records decided to finally put together an issue of ORACLE material worthy of collector's expectations. Desolate Kings: The Oracle Anthology features 17 tracks from ORACLE's entire history plus a brand new interview with Shawn Pelata as well as new introduction by long time fan and columnist, Olaf Becker (Turn Or Burn Magazine).
For the collectors, they were able to unearth an alternate vocal version of their original demo cassette, plus the super rare 2 track demo featuring the band after Shawn's departure. So this is it, for the fans, a true anthology of a great North Carolina metal band, ORACLE.
