London, U.K.-based atmospheric sludge/doom metal emitters WREN have just unleashed their new EP ‘Thrall‘ via Holy Roar Records recently, on Aug. 31st.
The band is sharing a stream of the recording at this time, consisting of one powerful track that is nearly 20 minutes in length. In that span of time, WREN delves headfirst into some truly dark, menacing music that seems to portend looming destruction.
Mostly dense and chaotic, there are brief respites of melodic levity but they are fleeting, eventually returning to an avalanche of apocalyptic sonics. The ‘Thrall‘ EP from WREN will be issued digitally from Holy Roar Records and on cassette from Astral Noize and is out now.
