The Birth

The Old Corpse Road was conceived during the autumn season of 2007 during a brief excursion to the Lake District, more specifically Haweswater. This Autumnal break, in celebration of the wondrous and powerful music that we all know as Black Metal, awoke our desire to share our musical passions with other like minded people. The band name was taken from the road of the same name which rises out of the Haweswater valley and leads to Mardale.

The Journey So Far

2008 - Throughout the period of 2008 the band diligently worked on their first musical output focusing on creating classic British black metal fused with the passion and atmospheres created by British folk tales. Crafting each song carefully the band prepared several songs of which five were recorded. Of these three were put forward for the demo. During this year the band also launched a very successful MySpace website along with its own dedicated website.

    Bloody phenomenal band. I am sad to say that I had neglected them for a couple of years after being a huge fan in the early days but I'm correcting that now. Tis Witching Hour... Is every bit the masterwork I hoped it would be.

    @ Nihility, strangely enough our keyboardist went to uni in High Wycombe, and was mentioning playing there at some point, so it's certainly not out of the question! \m/
