Hello and welcome to the 24th Official Old Corpse Road Newsletter.
Walking down the Old Corpse Road
The last few weeks has seen the band play some fantastic gigs, namely Beermageddon Festival, Day of Rapture III and a main support slot for Hecate Enthroned. Sadly The Dreamer has been unable to perform drums with us for the last few shows due to injury but we hope he will return to the live fold soon. As you may have seen, these gigs have featured session drums from Tom (Box Head) Warner, current drummer for our friends Ravenage and Aloeswood. He's been doing a brilliant job and will continue to support the band until The Dreamer returns. For this we are eternally grateful!
Onwards we plough into this string of live dates which continues this coming weekend with a unique gig at Fell Foot Wood near the shores of Windermere in the UK Lake District. We will share the woodland stage with Ebonillumini (featuring members of The Meads of Asphodel) and Black Sun Roof. A perfect setting to perform our dark arts and on the eve of the Autumnal Equinox, this will be a night to remember!
The following week we return to the UK's leading folk/pagan/black metal festival, Warhorns Festival, in the city of York. Last year was amazing and this year is set to be even better with headline acts Black Messiah, Fjoergyn, Mael Mordha and Kull alongside a host of great UK underground acts. We will be playing on the Saturday but will be there on the Friday night also as fans.
As we enter October we finally hit Sunderland to headline Khaos Part I. Sunderland is a particularly special location for us as it is home to the story for our album opener 'The Cauld Lad of Hylton'. Towards the end of October we will finally venture away from our haunted shores as we head for Ireland to play the Siege of Limerick Festival as well as a warm up show the night before.
