English Black Punk Metal/The Bones of This Land are Not Speechless is a split album from The Meads of Asphodel and Old Corpse Road released on Godreah Records[1] in March 2010. Tracks 1-3 are original tracks from Old Corpse Road with tracks 4-10 completing the release and being performed by The Meads of Asphodel.

Old Corpse Road, hailing from the North East of England, kick off the release with their fiery brand of pagan black metal. Lengthy symphonic songs meander across traditional English black metal soundscapes and a deeply brooding pagan atmosphere.

The Meads of Asphodel need no introductions and this pre album release is a collection of cover songs and one new song. The first Meads track is a new original song for this release, with the remaining 5 tracks being classic punk covers. The Meads have always had a Brit punk underbelly and this has now been driven into renditions of Doom, Hellbastard, Skeptix and Conflict, as well as a lamenting version of The Kinks' "You Really Got Me".
