Inspired by a recording session with long-time stoner metal stalwarts Sons of Otis, guitarist/producer Greg Dawson (Cunter, Grift, BWC Studios) began to handpick and assemble OLDE back in 2014.

Eschewing the sometimes meandering mores of the genre, OLDE's first album, I, was released by Toronto’s Hypaethral Records in 2014 followed by a 4-song independently released EP, Shallow Graves, in 2016. Acting as bridge between I and what would become the band's 2017 acclaimed release Temple, Shallow Graves shows the band reaching out into more frantic, feral and frenzied territory while staying true to their heavy riff-clobbering roots.

The band's second full length, Temple, was released in August of 2017 by STB Records, and showed much growth, encompassing more abstraction and harmony, whilst continuing to bludgeon their fans with riff after riff driven by the sophisticated-caveman drums of Aubin and the harsh, yet always clear, vocals of lyricist McLarty.

Over 2019 and early 2020, OLDE wrapped the writing and recording of their third full-length, Pilgrimage. The album is another step up in all aspects maintaing OLDE's penchant for punishing heaviness while still focusing on melodies and rock n' roll sensibilities. Fans of the band will no doubt be pleased by their never-wavering commitment to earth heaving riffs, and while the songs might be more nuanced, they are the bands best. Pilgrimage also features guest solos from “Chewy” Daniel Mongrain of Voivod and Nichol S. Robertson.
