Blood Oath is the sixth studio album by American death metal band Suffocation. The band began recording in-studio on January 31 with Joe Cincotta (who worked on the band's last two releases). The follow-up to 2006's self-titled record Suffocation was mixed by Zack Ohren and the cover artwork was once again designed by Jon Zig. The track "Marital Decimation" is a re-recording of a track of the same name from the Breeding the Spawn album.
The album sold 3,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position 135 on the Billboard 200, Suffocation's first entry in the Billboard charts.
