Boss Keloid
Herb Your Enthusiasm

Wigan prog-sludgers Boss Keloid’s 2016 album Herb Your Enthusiasm was so good that they’re releasing it again. This time it’s on gatefold vinyl, so you can have your sludge and spin it too. Bursting with well-produced riffing, randy cover art and enough puns to sink the HMS James Joyce, your enthusiasm for this one is doubtless very herbed indeed.

Pijn
Loss

A cold Winter’s night in Manchester. Post-rockers Pijn turn up, cold and shivering, at the doorstep of Holy Roar Records. Mr. Roar peels the door open a crack, oil lamp in hand. Pulling their thin blankets tightly around their shoulders, the quintet outside humbly offer the rights to their debut LP Loss in exchange for a little cheese and a hunk of bread and, if it wouldn’t be too bold sir, maybe a drop of whisky to steel them against the wicked night ahead. Mr. Roar’s eyes dart up and down the street. Then without speaking he opens up and hurries the group into the house. With an expectant twinkle in his eye Mr. Roar quietly clicks the door to. The last thing we see before he blows out the flame is the beginning of a grin curling the corners of his mouth...

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 comparison with My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless.

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 for wiggly, wibbly progressive rock.

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.

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.

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 black metal theatrics, as well as nods to shoegaze in their reverb-heavy climaxes.

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.

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 can be made here, hugely detuned and foreboding.

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 Green In Snot Green’ (yum!) coloured vinyl, while limited stocks last.
  • Vinyl LP (HRR171V)

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.

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’). On Holy Roar.

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.

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 maddening rythms and instrumentals than they are bringing the heavy.

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’. In time honoured fashion we are now three years since the release of ‘Sans Souci’, and anticipation for music from this band is at fever pitch.If ‘Sans Souci’ was (as exemplified by its cover-art) dark and expansive, ‘Artery’ displays a classy, concise vibrancy. Kaleidoscopic in it’s evolution of sound for the band and in terms of new influences - shards of R’n’B and electronica are now beginning to show through - without ever deviating drastically away from their trademark math/instrumental rock sound.
  • CD (HRR126CD)

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-piece. Change Nothing, Regret Everything is available on 12” vinyl.

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 Me sees the band extend out from their dark yet melodic hardcore roots into alt-rock territory. Available on vinyl LP and CD
  • CD (HRR121CD)

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 of bands. The EP was mastered by Brad Boatright, which is a good thing because he knows about this stuff. Flies is available on 12” vinyl.

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 noise whilst Throats are unconfined by genre, mixing metal, punk with a whole host of different influences. Available on vinyl LP.
