ABOUT

"AN audiovisual EXPERIENCE OF the highest CALIBUR"

An eclectic Metal/Acoustic progressive group based around the Long Island, New York area - founded in 2004 by front-man & lead vocalist "Dr. Thomas Neill Cream" (The DoKToR) -

Since its inception, Hypocritical Oath has long been in search for its calling, as envisioned by the Good ol' DoKToR Himself.

The Mission:

To bring to awareness the mass hypocrisy and delusion that plagues our world today, To call to others to seek their individuality, their own voice, To rise above the status quo, the cults of personality, and to discover yourself, and ultimately - BE WHO YOU ARE -

The group also aims to accomplish the same philosophy in a musical sense, hoping to manipulate this thing called "music" and stretch it into an amorphous substance with no real form to better reflect the concept of ART.
