Personal text: Founded in early 2006 during a wintry excursion to the Peak District, Northern Oak have been spreading their unique brand of flute-heavy progressive folk metal across Sheffield and the rest of the UK ever since. With a slew of gigs under their belt (including festival shows in Edinburgh, London and Nottingham) and their debut album 'Tales From Rivelin' released to positive reviews in 2008, the band have gone from strength to strength with their current lineup, and stand poised to unleash their second full-length 'Monuments', a darker and more complex offering than its predecessor, upon an unsuspecting public. Praised for the energetic, powerful and theatrical nature of their live performances, Northern Oak are currently working on new material and continuing to gig throughout the country.
