Greetings, and welcome to the third official Old Corpse Road newsletter.
It's been a couple of months since our last newsletter, and my, what a couple of months it has been for the band. The OCR camp is getting fired up and ready for the forthcoming release of the split with Worms of Sabnock so watch this space and expect more news regarding the release shortly.

We would like to thank Steve and Live 4 Metal for this amazing feature. It truly is a great read.
UK Legions of Black Metal
Old Corpse Road have been included on the new UK Legions of Black Metal Vol. 2 Compilation. This compilation serves to show the world that UKBM is very much alive and we are glad to be included on it.
The track featured is an unreleased song called "Hell's Kettles" which was recorded during the demo sessions. This song tells the tale of several supposed bottomless pits that appeared without any reason during the reign of Henry 2nd near Darlington. There is much superstition attached to these pools. It is said that you can see the dead floating beneath the surface and hear their wailing cries. Musically this song is a homage to the early/mid 90's British scene.
