There are those out there who have been waiting for something, anything, from Holy Mountain that featured some of their recordings. Well sometimes it’s the stuff you have to wait the longest for that’s the most satisfying and with ‘Earth Measures’, Holy Mountain leave us in no doubt about whether their blistering live shows will translate on record.
Recorded in 17 hours, the six tracks and 34 minutes of Earth Measures fuse all of the elements we’ve come to expect from Holy Mountain’s ridiculously entertaining live shows: MC5, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Iron Monkey, KISS, you name it…it’s all in there and as exhilaratingly loud as you could possibly hope for.
Holy Mountain will be playing at Nice N’ Sleazy’s as part of Insularis Records‘ pop-up shop for Record Store day. Beyond that, you can catch them later in April at Edinburgh’s Banshee Labyrinth and then in Monorail for their ‘Earth Measures’ album launch.
