OLDE - Strength of Riff

One of the more ear catching bands in recent years here at Hand of Doom HQ has been OLDE from Toronto, Canada. Powerful and raw all round, hard hitting drums that sound like they are right in the room with you, and commanding vocals all add up to a devastating mix.

Their debut album"I" landed late in 2014, and despite this OLDE managed to find their way into numerous 'Best of" year end lists (#5 release of 2014 right here on Hand of Doom), as well as catching some ears over at Decibel Magazine and being listed by them as one the best Bandcamp finds of 2014.

For anyone who has read this far - well you're in luck, here are two free download codes for this sledgehammer of an album, courtesy of OLDE themselves!

Head over to and punch in one of the codes below:


2017 will see their second full album 'Temples' being released on STB Records (great label!). To tide us over until then, in August 2016 OLDE gave us the "Shallow Graves" EP, 3 new crushing studio tracks and a cover of the ripping Motorhead track 'Limb from Limb'

And, once again thanks to OLDE, here are two free download codes for Shallow Graves, redeemale at the same link as above for I:
