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

Renounced: Dear metalcore, watch the throne 1 July 2019

RENOUNCED - BEAUTY IS A DESTRUCTIVE ANGEL
OUT: 27/09/2019

In the early 00’s the metalcore scene was flourishing with the likes of Killswitch Engage, Misery Signals and Poison the Well… to name a few. Fast forward to present day there is a distinct lack of bands willing to rise to be the new wave of metalcore bands, enter Renounced.

Whilst new ‘hype’ bands have been coming and burning out just as fast Renounced have been quietly and confidently growing in the background watching the music scene flash by, biding their time and waiting for their rightful place at the top of metalcore.

The ‘difficult’ third album does not apply here, Renounced’s ‘Beauty Is A Destructive...

CURSE THESE METAL HANDS 14 June 2019



Hide your wives and lock your liquor cabinet, Pijn & Conjurer have joined forces to bring you 'Curse These Metal Hands', a collaboration album filled to the brim with sleaze and riffs.

Geographically far flung and musically disparate, the members of Pijn and Conjurer combine elements of their respective sounds, while taking inspiration from classic British rock such as Thin Lizzy, modern American metal in the vein of Baroness and Torche, whilst even indulging in the odd spot of Elton John worship. Curse These Metal Hands is sure to be a highlight for many heavy music fans this year.

Out 16/08/19

Ten tonnes of pure crush: introducing THROES 31 May 2019

Introducing Boise, Idaho based punishers THROES and their debut single ‘They Never Spoke’ from the forthcoming debut album ‘In The Hands Of An Angry God’. Channelling the sonic density and production values of post-metal exemplars Neurosis with the attack of extreme metal contemporaries Cult Leader, THROES present a decidedly vicious approach to their songcraft that feels revelatory in it’s malice.

Available on LP/CD/Digital through our webstore and Bandcamp (Deathwish Inc for US customers and 24Hundred for Aus customers)
