Wren - 'Thrall' OUT NOW 31 August 2018

Happy release day to Holy Roar's very own Post Metal visionaries Wren, with their new epic EP 'Thrall'.
Decibel Magazine had this to say of the track:

'Just shy of 20 minutes (19:56 is the final count on Soundcloud), Thrall sees Wren embrace heavy, crushing post-metal that thrives in its ability to shift from loud and heavy to quiet and pensive while still retaining a strong sense of atmosphere. Buried vocals call out through thick walls of guitars and echoing percussion before quieting and readying themselves to swell in volume again.'
