about

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since the release of their Self Titled EP in early 2014, London based sludge-disciples Wren have kept a deliberately low profile, highlighted by rare performances alongside Ohhms (Holy Roar) and Empress, (Roadrunner) whilst developing their sound.

The result is a miasmic eruption in the form of a split endeavour, alongside Leeds noise-rock trio Irk, a stylistic union that mirrors the progression of the band into it's current multi-faceted unity of noise and sludge. Having moved beyond the post-metal leanings of their previous work, Wren have taken a step into a darker, rawer, and more experimental realm of tonal vastness, demonstrating previously unheard elements within their repertoire, throughout their 18 minutes of this split EP.

Utilising a core framework of Neurosis inspired industrial sludge-metal, and the biting noise-rock morass of The Jesus Lizard, Wren spawn a sonic alchemy that is both ambitiously referential, and jarringly unique on this release, featuring the wretched vocals of Throats member Alex Wealands.
