Holy Roar Vinyl, CD & tapes from Norman Records

MØL
JORD

Denmark hasn’t really the reputation of its neighbours in the Nordic metal camp, but there new names do crop up once in a while. Here we have MØL (‘MOTH’) giving it a go. Following two EPs, the debut LP JORD (‘EARTH’) sees the Aarhus quintet going at it hard with the bl...view item »

Rolo Tomassi
Time Will Die and Love Will Bury It

It’s been pretty much a full decade since I saw Rolo Tomassi live doing an extremely didactic take on post-hardcore; we’re both a lot older now and they may have grown up faster than me. Taking the edge off their music with a focus on texture, melody and, uh, prog, they present ‘Time Will Die and Love Will Bury It’ as a b...view item »

Wren
Auburn Rule

London based four piece Wren ready their debut full length album for Holy Roar records after releasing their EP with them in 2016. Imposing bleak slabs of post-metal inspired and experimental sludge. Definite comparisons to Neurosis, Isis, Pelican, and Cult Of Luna ...view item »

Bossk
I II

On this here record, Bossk have not only proved they can count to two -- they have also made a very good record. A post-metal band that slither their tunes into place with the slow, doomy patience most only achieve by years of practice or by being Godspeed You! Black...view item »

I have never particularly loved it; math-skramz only sounds good to me when it’s seamlessly integrated, as w...view item »

Brontide
Artery

As one of longest slow-burn artists on Pink Mist and Holy Roar, the glacial unravelling of Brontide has been a consistent, fascinating tease.  Following a momentum-stoking 12” single (‘Coloured Tongues’) and tours in America, Europe and the UK finally the band settled down to write and record ‘Artery’. ...view item »

More Than Life
What’s Left Of Me

What’s Left Of Me is the new album by More Than Life, or MTL to their friends. More Than Life have been operating successfully as part of the UK underground scene for while now, piling up YouTube views and having their vinyl repressed to cope with demand of shifting units. What’s Left of...view item »

Enabler
Flies

Flies by Enabler came about after two unexpected and hastily arranged sessions on either side of the globe. The six track EP was partly recorded in Minneapolis and partly in Australia. With Flies being Enabler's third release this year they are gaining a reputation for being the most prolific o...view item »

Throats / Maths
Split

Widely regarded as a bedrock of the Holy Roar label’s back catalogue, Split served to thrust the two bands, Maths and Throats into the public arena. Split features five songs by each band. Maths engage the listener with their brand of melodic, complex noi...view item »
