2019 Holy Roar halftime 12 July 2019

With the first half of 2019 having already passed at a lightening pace, we thought we'd slow down for a moment and remind you of some of our releases that you may have missed!


A.A.Williams - S/T

Evoking influence from ‘Moon Pix’-era Cat Power and her serene contemporaries such as Emma Ruth Rundle, A.A.Williams is came out the gate as an exemplary songwriter with anthemic and passionate melodies with our first release of the year and her debut.

Ithaca - The Language Of Injury

Furiously discordant metalcore in the vein of Poison The Well and Misery Signals melded with dazzling expansive and introspective passages.

Minors - Abject Bodies

The debut from Canada's sludge-meets-hardcore upstarts is a relentless pummelling that is sure to fill the void bands like Trap Them and early Black Breath left behind.

Holy Fawn - Death Spells

Holy Fawn describe themselves as four creatures making "loud, heavy, pretty music" which vaguely encompasses their sound. It's a darker shade of shoegaze with elements of post rock's engulfing wall of sound. Truly a whole album experience.

Modern Rituals - Yearning

Prepare yourself for another mind bending noise rock release. 'Yearning' is a love song for the deranged and the most dedicated Pile, Shellac and Stove worshipping fans.

Minors/Greber - Split

Four tracks of uncompromising sludge and powerviolence from Canada.
Minors two song contribution comes hot off the heels of their latest LP 'Abject Bodies' and sees a continuation of their barbarity, whilst fellow natives Greber bring a more sludge orientated assault to the split.

We Never Learned To Live - The Sleepwalk Transmissions

Exemplary sophomore record from one of the UK's most loved post-hardcore bands. Undoubtedly one for fans of Thursday, Hopesfall and Deftones.

Møl - I/II

Where debut LP JORD fully fleshed out their shoegaze-meets-black metal formula to masterful effect, these two early releases showcase the band in a much more raw and unfiltered environment. Not to be confused as lesser-than material or relegated to subpar. Brimming with deft nods to My Bloody Valentine and Drop Nineteens just as much as Altar of Plagues or Deafheaven.
