Slow Crush
Aurora

Slow Crush release their debut LP via Holy Roar (OHHMS, Rolo Tomassi). Many bands claim a shoegaze influence these days, but Aurora is a record truly worthy of the tag. The huge walls of sound and towering drums of tracks like ‘Shallow Breath’ merit genuine ...view item »

OHHMS
Exist

OOHMS are here with their second album which should be a right favourite in our office.  They make heavy heavy prog with nods way back to the '70s likes of Pink Floyd and the Soft Machine and the more bang up to date the Mars Volta. Tin hat time for those too fainthearted f...view item »

Talons
We All Know

Instrumental fancy dans Talons show off their compositional, structural and dynamic chops with their third long-player, We All Know. The album takes the listener through myriad mood changes with cold and bleak soundscapes that are tempered by warm tones, and uplifting passages. LP and CD on Holy Roar....view item »

Svalbard
It's Hard To Have Hope

It’s Hard to Have Hope. Indeed it is, Bristol-based crust/hardcore quartet Svalbard. Indeed it is. From revenge porn and unpaid internships to pro-life campaigners, the group take square aim at the injustices of such controversial topics in a heavy, dramatic and deeply frustrated bunch of cathartic outbursts....view item »

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

From humble roots as teenagers totally surprising audiences in small venues with their mature, brutal take on hardcore, this now legendary group show no signs of slowing. Further adding progressive and psychedelic elements to their bruising metallic core, this new album is a further progression of their enormous sound....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

I / II is an album by Bossk first released in 2008 that resides at the pinnacle of the post-rockers catalogue. These are thoughtful compositions that take their sweet time building up intricate webs of guitar and rhythm. I / II is reissued on vinyl by Holy Roar, available in both standard and ‘Seafoam Gre...view item »

Rolo Tomassi
The BBC Sessions

The BBC Sessions by Sheffield’s mathcore five-piece Rolo Tomassi has been in the pipeline for a few years now. Made up from sessions recorded for Daniel P. Carter on Radio 1’s Rock Show in 2013 and for Huw Stephens in 2008. All 9 tracks were recorded live at the famous Maida Vale studios. ...view item »

Svalbard
One Day All This Will End

One Day All This Will End is the eagerly anticipated debut album from Svalbard, a band devoted to most of the genres that could be described as ‘heavy’. Eight tracks of howling post-hardcore with lashings of crust-punk, black-metal, and maybe even some post-rock (especially on ‘The Vanishing Point&rsqu...view item »

Rolo Tomassi
Grievances

Rip-roaring Sheffield powerhouse Rolo Tomassi are back with new album Grievances. The fourth studio album progresses further into melodic realms complete with Tortoise-esque drums and jangly post-rock guitar lines leading to a quintessentially epic Rolo Tomassi finale. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Holy Roar....view item »

Body Hound
Rhombus Now

Body Hound brings together Sheffield's post-hardcore outfit Rolo Tomassi with the remains of tech-death band Antares for the decidedly math-rock-titled 'Rhombus Now', a record that blends together an affection for prog rock with the modern sounds of bands like And So I Watch You From Afar and Maps & Atlases. Body Hound are more interested in...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 »

Employed To Serve
Change Nothing, Regret Everything

Change Nothing, Regret Everything is the new EP by Post-hardcore miserablists Employed To Serve. The 6 track EP creates a paradoxical world of chaotic bleakness in its relatively short yet effective twelve minutes. Initially a duo recording in their bedrooms, Employed To Serve have now become a four-pie...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 »

Coliseum
Sister Faith

Coliseum take hardcore, punk, rock'n'roll, and a heavy post punk influence to create artfully crafted rockers that bridge the gap from 1987 to today. I can't stress how essential this band is to anyone missing the experimentation that Punk and Hardcore took after everyone sounded the same and it was up to bands like Fuga...view item »

Crossbreaker
Lows

Eeeaaaaaargh! This seven is a split release between Holy Roar and Thirty Days Of Night, and sounds exactly like something you would imagine both those labels to go nuts over. It's the debut release of Wales's Crossbreaker. These youngsters have constructed a fine four-song EP of bleak and ...view item »

gallops
Joust / Eukodol

Aren't Holy Roar a nu-screamo type label? That's what I thought they were doing anyway, but that's not what this is at all! This single from Gallops is mega precise instrumental atmospheric stuff with synths and guitars. The drumming is totally slick and well recorded and the fills are properly tasty and there's a lovely bit of squelch on th...view item »

Young Legionnaire
Colossus / Iron Dream

These guys are pretty sweet. Its a bit 70s MOR crossed with spiky indie that may sound like the worst marriage since Rush Limbaugh proposed to Whoopie Goldberg but it's not that bad. It's upbeat and unpretentious and is hook-laden to the hilt. I like its urgency. Side B is a bit more mellow but still retains the same energy... If that's pos...view item »

Kayo Dot / Bloody Panda
Split EP

Lastly on this alarming noisy label are KAYO DOT & BLOODY PANDA with a split LP. Previously starring on Tzadik, The Dot take up side 1 with slowly unfurling epic lounge rock from another galaxy. There's a seriously sinister swarm of satanic jazz ravens chuntering on under what initially sounds a bit like the Dismemberment P...view item »

Pulled Apart By Horses/Holy State
Split

Don't know much about the Holy State but 'Urges' sounds refreshingly rocking in a straight up, ear shredding, eyes bleeding kinda way. Totally tasteless, incredibly sharp post punk grunginess that is just what i wanna hear right now! Simple, dirty and to the point. Sounds like it was recorded yesterday for a fiver in my kitchen. Mint. Pulled apart ...view item »

Dananananaykroyd
Sissy Hits

DananananananananAYCKROYD!! DananananananananAYCKROYD!! I love doing that like it's the old Batman TV show theme tune, but enough about me. After some label troubles the six-track 'Sissy Hits' finally comes out on Holy Roar and it's pretty much win. Going from poppy, mathy bits to Hot Snakes-y bits to lurching heaviness (bits) and doing them all ra...view item »

Rolo Tomassi
Rolo Tomassi

rather more upsetting are ROLO TOMASSI on Holy Roar once more. Very easy to lump these in with the psycho jazz prog peddled by the likes of An Albatross. It ain't an easy listen. The lyrics sound like the girl from the Excorcist shouting at some ducks in the park that may have stolen her ice cream. The keyboards shimmer wh...view item »

Phoenix Bodies
Raise The Bullshit Flag

Heres a CD by PHOENIX BODIES which sounds like the thrillingest thing I can put my mangled noggin through this aft. It's rather like Trumans Water meets System of a Down. A right freewheeling mad metal shitfest to upset everyone with any notion of upright citizenship. Remember Raging Speedhorn? These are way bette...view item »
