25. DAS OATH “Mini LP”

Continuing on their welcomed path to oblivion, the band’s sophomore release ejected a superbly produced attack in a gatefold with all the usual tastefulness you’ve come to love to hate. Expanding upon their range of influences only slightly, this record contains nine tracks full of barely-contained intensity targeted at every sap who think bands are worth admiring. Thanks to their own increasingly devious attempts to thwart any lingering fans, this record cost a fortune and is impossible to find in stores. 1,000 copies on clear vinyl. First 500 sleeves with UV gloss coating.
