Old Season is a Heavy Metal band hailing from Ireland. Their music has been described as Doom-Laden Irish Heavy Metal. They are based in Athy, Co.Kildare.

The band formed in Dublin in 2003 from the ashes of Karnayna, comprising of Frank Brennan (Vocals), Jimmy Blanchfield (Guitar), Philip Mahony (Guitar), Dermod Smyth (Keyboards/Piano), Ciaran O'Neill (Bass) and Anto Walsh (Drums). After playing several shows across Ireland including the Day Of Darkness 2004, the band made their first recordings with James Connolly temporarily filling on the Drums.

Volume One was released in 2005, which saw the band hitting the stage, playing many key dates including supporting Skyforger on their Irish tour and playing with the likes of Obituary, Twisted Tower Dire, Anvil, Slough Feg etc.

At the end of 2006, Old Season and Phillip Mahony mutually decided to part ways. The remaining members soldiered on, hiring Ciaran Doyle as a replacement for Mahony, playing several shows including Up The Hammers 2007 in Athens, Greece. In June 2007 came further line-up changes as it was announced that Ciaran O'Neill was no longer in the lineup. The following September it was announced that Dave Copley had been hired as O'Neill's replacement. After a handfull of shows including a triumphant appearance at the Day Of Darkness 2008 festival, the band laid low for the rest of 2008 to finalise material for their second release.
