Thrash Hits verdict: As with pretty much all new bands, they formed from the ashes of a couple of bands from within the same local scene and Shrine did just that. With drummer, Liam Kearley and bassist, Andrew Gosden putting the band together with Joe Gosney, guitarist and today’s interview subject, they started putting music together. When Will Gardner’s band, Lithurgy parted ways, he added vocals. The result is a proggy, math riff-oriented mix of rock and metal that knows how long to linger on the melodies and when to descend into darker, sludgier ways. They’re releasing a new EP on 07 April 2014 but we’re streaming it below. Listen to it.

Obviously we weren’t going to miss it!
