Turbo Music sent a small sum of money(50€) for studio time in the beginning of '90 to record "The Oath of Black Blood" album; back then you couldn’t record an album for less than a few hundred euros, so Turbo Music decided to release the "Demonomancy" demo along with "Dawn of Satan's Millennium" 7'' as a full length. To this day it is still widely regarded as their first album.

Turbo music secretly re-released the CD to a limited quantity in 1992; around the time when they released albums by Acheron, Goatlord and Mortuary, this can be authenticated by comparing both the Turbo music address and matrix code with those bands first CD releases; there are also differences between the 1st and 2nd pressing, such as tray card and logo colour, plus printing on the disc.

Recording information:

Recorded and mixed at Alaky Studio, Finland.
Re-mixed at Jowa Studio, Germany.
