Rest are an instrumental rock group from Cork, Ireland. The group's sound has evolved over the course of their existence to incorporate elements of progressive rock, tech-metal, post-rock, doom, black metal and math rock. The groups sound is characterised by intricate harmonised riffs, complex drum patterns, unconventional song structures, a heavy emphasis on dynamics and alternating time signatures. 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!
