The Dread Crew of Oddwood

since circa 2008
The Dread Crew of Oddwood is a folk metal band known for its pirate-themed music played exclusively on acoustic instruments. They have dubbed this unique style as Heavy Mahogany.

Over the past 6 years The Dread Crew of Oddwood has independently booked 6 national tours, performing at over 70 venues throughout the U.S. and Canada. This crew of bearded brigands packs bars and concert halls with rabid fans that flock to experience a headbanging, jig-dancing, pirate-filled adventure. Recently, they’ve directly supported the bands Turisas, Firewind, Rhapsody of Fire, Arkona, Stolen Babies, Buckethead, and Steam Powered Giraffe.

By infusing the raw energy of heavy metal with Celtic folk music, The Dread Crew of Oddwood’s Heavy Mahogany style has carved a distinct and popular niche in the heavy metal community. They riff and shred on the accordion, mandolin, bouzouki, tin whistle, toy piano, acoustic guitar, upright bass, and “Oddkit”, while weaving grandiose tales of comrades lost, bloody sieges, drunken debauchery, zombies, airships, and time travel! Recently returned from their Summer Practice Tour, rumors are beginning to spread about The Dread Crew of Oddwood’s next adventure!
