Octave of the Holy Innocents is a studio album by Swedish bassist Jonas Hellborg, experimental guitarist Buckethead and drummer Michael Shrieve first released in 1993.[1]

The album title refers to the Massacre of the Innocents and the Simple Octave of Christian liturgical usage.

Hellborg reworked the album in 2003 and re-released it through Bardo Records.

He writes:

When looking over the tapes of these sessions I discovered tracks that I did not use the first time around. So there are no extra songs on this reissue, but a fundamental reworking of all the compositions of the first release. Some new light on this music that I did with 2 of my absolute favorite musicians.
