Rest: I Hold The Wolf (Out On A Limb Records)

Cork’s instrumental prog-rockers Rest are back with a new LP, I Hold The Wolf, their first since 2004’s debut album Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame.

Comprising eight songs and 56 minutes of music, I Hold The Wolf has been six years in the making. The album, which will be available in both digital form as well as double heavyweight vinyl, was recorded at Data Studios, Kerry, mastered by James Plotkin, and will be released on the bands’ long-standing (and very patient) label Out On A Limb Records.

Just as 2007’s Operation: Impending Doom EP represented a marked departure from the sound of their debut record, I Hold The Wolf again finds the band moving their sound forward in new directions.

I Hold The Wolf is a mutant hybrid of intricate technical riffs, classic-rock influenced guitar harmonies, frenetic and propulsive drums, doomed out psych rock, uplifting Yes-style prog passages, analogue synth sounds, Sabbaths’ pummeling down-tuned grooves and Black Metals corrosive, relentless and hypnotic crescendos.

Just don’t call it post-rock!
