An intensely loud and unorthodox high-energy trio from Glasgow combining the riffs of Black Sabbath, the frenzied energy of Lightning Bolt and the attitude of the MC5. The band’s debut mini album ‘Earth Measures‘ was recorded in 17 hours at Glasgow’s Diving Bell studio with Marcus Mackay (Frightened Rabbit/Reindeer Section) before being mixed and mastered by Iain Cook of Aereogramme/ The Unwinding Hours.
Chemikal Underground released this on limited edition coloured vinyl with CD and a signed/numbered insert on May 7th 2012.
Masculine yet never macho, reverential yet never slavish, accomplished yet never
ostentatious, galaxy-shaking hard rock visionaries Holy Mountain return to
Planet Earth for the release of magnum opus ‘Ancient Astronauts’. Holy Mountain’s ‘Ancient Astronauts‘ was released on the 7th of April 2014 and was recorded by Paul Savage at Chem 19.
On Earth Measures…
“A cacophonous, riff-driven release imbued with savage axe-mastery and vintage spirit. Holy Mountain are a delirious, hirstute rawk mob” The List [4/5]
“Snort, snappy and barbed stabs at punk rock evolving into sprawling and increasingly psychedelic journeys” The Skinny [4/5]
“The live arena will be Holy Mountain’s true domain, but for a first album of explosive zero-gravity riffage, this is immense“ The Herald
“A breathless journey, tinged with humour” Drowned in Sound [8/10]
