Of Campfires and Evening Mists

The new album from Old Corpse Road
Available May 28th from Cacophonous Records

Live Review - Terrorizer Magazine 2013


"Old Corpse Road have been toiling away for a long while now, playing gig after gig of their blackened folk metal across the country. Their work ethic shows tonight with an exceptionally polished performance that has the venue going all out in appreciation."

Insidious Art and Serpentine Rites

"Old Corpse Road are in a sense doing a job in black metal what Tolkien did with literature. Trying to preserve and carry on a “mythology” that England has long since lost and forgotten. These guy’s should be national treasures! Who say’s metal can’t be educational and informing?! There is no such other intellectual and sophisticated genre of music and Old Corpse Road know their stuff and they have so many layers and dimensions that you always end up finding more."

Jorvik Viking Fest - Feb 2014

"a highly atmospheric set and it really was fantastic to see just how into the music they were – when a band really makes an effort with their performance, it really pays off and it was incredible to see near-enough the whole crowd head-banging in tandem with one another"

The Bones of This Land are not Speechless

"Encompassing elements of folk, black metal, doom and progressive music, Old Corpse Road are arguably without peer in the UK at this moment in time and with careful nurturing and the support of their fans have the potential for a long and fascinating career ahead of them"

'Tis Witching Hour... As Spectres we Haunt this Kingdom

"Perhaps the unifying factor is something shadowy and unique to the English soul... 'Tis Witching Hour... is wonderfully evocative, eerie and - above all - uniquely English"

Metal Hammer 9/10

Of Campfires and Evening Mists Limited Edition Pre-Order

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

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...

Old Corpse Road sign with Cacophonous Records - New album announced!

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.
