Wren is a four piece band from London, UK who formed in late 2013, from the looks of things.  Wren play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of sludge, noise rock, and post metal within their sound.  Musically, Wren can be said to be influenced by bands such as Amen Ra, Old Man Gloom, Jesus Lizard, Neurosis, and Eyehategod.  Since forming in 2013, Wren have released a self-titled four song EP in February of 2014, a seven song LP titled Irk in March of 2015, a five song EP titled Host in April of 2016, a five song LP  Auburn Rule in July of 2017, a split with Gardenback in July of 2017, and a split with Slabdragger in October of 2017.  Thrall is the band's latest EP, which was released via Holy Roar records and Astral Noize records on August 31st, 2018.  On Thrall, Wren offer up one track of dense, raw, and dirty as fuck sounding post metal, sludge, and noise rock.  Overall, Auburn Rule is an amazing LP and Wren is an absolute must listen for fans of Amen Ra, Old Man Gloom, Blood Sun Circle, Lightbearer, and other like-minded bands.  Seriously, this has got to be one of the best EPs I've heard all week.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
