Employed To Serve – Eternal Forward Motion

With a new label, their own album release shows, and more touring and festival slots than seemingly physically possible, Employed To Serve have grabbed 2019 by the throat and they will not let go until the whole world knows their name. Eternal Forward Motion (Spinefarm Records) is the most apt album title for this band right now as they steamroll through the competition, uncompromising in their sound, there seems to be no slowing down for Woking’ s heaviest export.

We Never Learned To Live – The Sleepwalk Transmissions 

Much like Roadrunner Records in the 1990s, a mark of contemporary quality is any band on the Holy Roar Records roster.

Minors – Abject Bodies

When Atrophy came out a year and a little bit ago, Ontario Hardcore outfit Minors made a lasting impression in their twenty-minute onslaught of Converge melancholy and frenetic All Pigs Must Die-like energy. It was another home run for Holy Roar Records, but due to its December release it sadly got overlooked by a large portion of the Metal media. Well, it’s a new year and with that comes new material from the Canadians in the form of Abject Bodies; a traumatic continuation of their uncompromising sludgy, Hardcore oppression. Continue reading

A.A. Williams – A.A. Williams EP

With YouTube comparisons with Chelsea Wolfe and Emma Ruth Rundle already boosting her reputation, the fact that Holy Roar Records are releasing eponymous EP A.A. Williams is a testament to the growing sense of expectation. Continue reading
