Plutonian Shore / Humut Tabal - Oaths ov Stygian Dusk

4 Tracks- Split release between black metal bands Plutonian Shore (San Antonio, TX) and Humut Tabal (Austin, TX) released August 9th, 2011 through The Dread Lair.

Mastered by Grimzaar at HT Studios in the Texas Hill Country. Humut Tabal's tracks composed by Grimzaar & Hravan.
