Sacred Oath was originally formed in 1985 by Rob Thorne and Pete Altieri while the two were classmates at Bethel High School. The band recorded their first demo in 1985 and quickly sold hundreds of them through local stores like Record Broker and Phoenix Records, developing a loyal following referred to as the "Oathbangers. Members Rob Thorne, Pete Altieri, Glen Cruciani, and Kenny Evans recorded Sacred Oath's debut album A Crystal Vision in May 1987 at Presence Studios in East Haven CT, where Dave Obrizzo produced and Jon Russell engineered. The album was released in 1988 on vinyl, cassette, and CD and went on to garner cult-classic status as one of the pioneer efforts of the American power metal movement. The band disbanded in December 1988 before the album had caught on, due to creative disagreements and frustration with their failing record label.

The debut album by Sacred Oath, 1988's A Crystal Vision, has turned out to be a cult classic of sorts - the main reason being because the group disbanded shortly after the album's original release, but managed to be discovered by die-hard metalheads over the years. In 2001, the album was finally reissued with bonus tracks, and for fans of vintage '80s metal - à la King Diamond and first wave thrash bands - A Crystal Vision may be quite a sonic treat for those who once (or still do) displayed their proud devotion to the mighty mullet.
