The Echoes of Tales Once Told

H.L. OLD CORPSE ROAD play very British black metal, telling spooky stories - an acoustic ghost walk so to say. Often they remind me at classic British bands like Cradle of Filth, Hecate Enthroned or Bal Sagoth, especially the extreme screams and the spoken words parts. The songwriting is multi-faceted and I would really like to read the lyrics while listening to epic dark tales like "The Oakmen of Naddle Forest". Favorite track: The Oakmen of Naddle Forest.

Venombullet666 This is a fantastic EP, three songs of raw brutality yet so much melody too, The Wild Hunt stands out to me the most out of these, I really like how all three songs don't have many similarities as well, I am really glad I bought this EP :) Favorite track: The Wild Hunt.
