Haast's Eagled - 'II: For Mankind' to be released on Holy Roar 27th May 8 March 2016

We are immensely proud to finally be able to unveil that we will be releasing 'II: For Mankind', the forthcoming album by experimental Welsh stoner/doom trio HAAST'S EAGLED. Sending us this self-produced, four track, one hour monster out of the blue, we here at Holy Roar were instantly floored. This is some of the most imaginative, plaintive, acerbic and kaleidoscopic doom we have had the pleasure of hearing.

Undulating between monastic contemplation, soaring vocals, titanic riffing, esoteric solos and even exquisitely tasteful doomloungejazz, this is less ‘a journey’ and more a perfectly executed mission of sound.

Of course this is not easy first-time listening, none of the best albums are. However, what we have in our hands here...

Wren - 'Host' preorders are now live! 4 March 2016

Following on from their split with Irk in 2015, 'Host' is the latest offering from Wren, which reveals their most refined material to date.

Whilst Host unreservedly reflects the stylistic impact of genre pioneers Converge and Neurosis, Wren have deliberately filtered this influence through the acerbic lens of The Jesus Lizard, and in an attempt to separate themselves from the quagmire of post-metal replicants, Wren have forged something sonically and conceptually imposing.

A full track from the record will premiere next week.

Preorder now on 12" vinyl LP or digitally, along with a t-shirt.

Please welcome CONJURER to Holy Roar 9 February 2016

We are very happy to announce that we shall be working with post-sludge Midlanders Conjurer. If you like the thought of those first couple of Mastodon records developing a fondness for early Opeth, death metal, doom and prog, then Conjurer will be for you. Having burst onto the scene early in 2015, the band have done what all great bands should do - play lots of shows. Having racked up supports with the likes of Anaal Nathrakh, Mutoid Man, Conan, Celeste, The Sword, OHHMS, Hang The Bastard and many more, the band are now gearing up to release their debut 12"/CD via Holy Roar this summer. More details will follow on that release in due course, along with...
