Orexis of Death is the only album by doom rock band Necromandus. It was recorded in 1973 under the supervision of Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi, but was shelved due to Barry Dunnery's departure from the band and wasn't released until 1999. The album was re-released in 2005 under the name Orexis of Death Plus... and included two unreleased bonus tracks. It was also reissued in 2010 in its standard form, but with their Live album included.[1]
