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
