"Darlington’s Old Corpse Road have been fusing folklore, history and epic, quintessentially English black metal for the past eight years". Check out the new lyric video for Old Corpse Road's single "Herne of Windsor Forest" - featured on the Metal Hammer / TeamRock site!
We are very proud to unveil a very special version of our upcoming album "Of Campfires And Evening Mists".
This version comes housed in an exclusive hand crafted wooden box, each masterfully crafted by The Revenant, emblazoned with our Sigil of Herne upon the lid.
Inside the box you will find
- A CD copy of the album
- A Sigil of Herne patch
- A hessian bag containing a stone hand plucked from the river Tees by The Watcher, who braved the waters in defiance of the cursed river hag Peg Powler.
- A sealed scroll is also housed within the box
And as a final hail and farewell thee well to our former member, the Seer, we are including his staff, as seen on the album artwork. The Wanderer, using pyrography, etched the final words from our album upon it and tore it asunder, leavng one part of the staff for each box. Photographs will follow soon...
This version costs £17.00 and is limited to 100 copies and is only available direct from the band.
Pre-orders for the regular version are currently being made available in the shops and will be available direct from Cacophonous
Old Corpse Road are proud to announce our induction into the resurrected Cacophonous coven. The dedication and support from a legendary label who brought the world bands such as Bal-Sagoth, Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir is incredible. For Cacophonous to have faith in our vision and music is a humbling experience. It is a great honour for the Old Corpse Road moniker to sit alongside many of the bands that inspired our journey. We can't think of a better home for our opus 'Of Campfires and Evening Mists' and we hope our partnership with Cacophonous proves to only strengthen the burgeoning UK black metal scene.
'Of Campfires and Evening Mists' has been a long time project, and is a work of blood, sweat and determination. The band has worked tirelessly to make sure that every aspect of the album, from the artwork to the music, represents our darkened take on British folklore in its purest form. The music flows from fierce black metal through to powerful melodic passages and onto serene yet haunting moments. We have taken time to fully explore the moods and themes of each story, leading to long but enthralling songs.
