Happy release day to Holy Roar's very own Post Metal visionaries Wren, with their new epic EP 'Thrall'.
Decibel Magazine had this to say of the track:
'Just shy of 20 minutes (19:56 is the final count on Soundcloud), Thrall sees Wren embrace heavy, crushing post-metal that thrives in its ability to shift from loud and heavy to quiet and pensive while still retaining a strong sense of atmosphere. Buried vocals call out through thick walls of guitars and echoing percussion before quieting and readying themselves to swell in volume again.'
Digital Download available here

We are very excited to release our second collaboration with Good Chemistry Brewing - ROAR POWER!
Following the success of ROAR POWER in keg (launched across the country with a five night bands-and-beer tour), we decided this beach ball of a beer should be available in small pack - and cans are of course festival/beach/picnic/park-appropriate!
This 5% summer smasher is built on a rich and sweet malt base with plenty of wheat and oats. We added 140kgs of sweet cherry and peach puree to give the beer an extra fruity dimension and a light pink colour. We then dry-hopped with Hallertau Blanc, Citra and Mosaic to bring out extra fruity flavours.
Available in 440ml cans, packs of 4 and whole cases - pre-order...

Slabdragger explore their most carefree, fun side, turning Frank Zappa’s ‘Muffin Man' into a 10 minute-plus quagmire of sludge. Wren meanwhile make Captain Beefheart’s ‘Electricity’ bristle with a cold, almost mechanical, Krautian post-metal edge.
“Muffin Man has one of the best, catchiest riffs ever written. It’s so simple but driven through loads of fuzz and volume, we always have...
