NORTHERN OAK unveil new album tracklist & artwork

NORTHERN OAK - Of Roots and Flesh

English progressive folk metallers Northern Oak from South Yorkshire unveil upcoming album details, including the track listing and artwork, for their 3rd full-length album “Of Roots And Flesh“, which is set for release on 4th October 2014. Ranging from existential rage on “The Gallows Tree“, relentless doom and sorrow on “Taken” to a desire to see the best of humanity in the title track, “Of Roots And Flesh” rewards with a seamless blending of vocal styles and a fusion of electric and acoustic guitars, flutes, violins and even melodeons as the band take you on a musical journey through the nature of struggle. Northern Oak are renowned for their ability to weave vicious black metal riffs with haunting flute folk melodies. Since the release of their 2010 album “Monuments” the band has toured the length and breadth of the UK with their energetic live show, furthering their reputation and earning the band show time at prestigious festivals such as Bloodstock Open Air and Warhorns. The recording of the new album was entirely funded through a Kickstarter campaign run by the band. The incredible show of support from their loyal and ever growing fan base allowed Northern Oak to record the album at Skyhammer Studios with renowned producer Chris Fielding (Primordial, Electric Wizard, Conan). The album art, completed by Lithuanian born artist Augustinas Našlėnas, can be seen below. Full tracklist for “Of Roots And Flesh” is also revealed.
