Pest Webzine Review - Jan 2013

3 years after I have reviewed their debut demo, Old Corpse Road are back on my review list with their debut full-length composed of 10 tracks and lasting for almost an hour. Their music is still on the same patterns of their 2009 demo, but the production has improved a lot and I might also say their compositions are now tighter and more compact although still mixing slow Folkish Ambient parts with fast, insane Black Metal parts with sharp as a razorblade vocals.

Their strongest elements are, I think, the lyrics (Celtic and Brittish folklore) and the atmospheres they manage to express them with, you can almost feel immersed in their fairytales, you can almost live them. A very good release that should not miss from any Heathen / Pagan Metal follower's collection; traditional Black Metallers might enjoy it too.
