Holy Mountain Ancient Astronauts Limited Gatefold 180gram Vinyl LP + CD

· Glasgow 3-piece Holy Mountain follow up 2012’s mini
album ‘Earth Measures’ with their debut full length album
‘Ancient Astronauts’.
· Masculine yet never macho, reverential yet never slavish,
galaxy-shaking hard rock visionaries Holy Mountain return
to Planet Earth for the release of magnum opus ‘Ancient
Astronauts’ on Chemikal Underground.
· The LP is on 180gsm heavyweight vinyl in a gatefold
sleeve and includes a CD of the album.
· What the press said about ‘Earth Measures’: “There's a
depth and richness in the sound that lets so many other
rock records down. The bass echoes. The drums are
relentless.” - Drowned In Sound (8/10)
· “A cacophonous, riff-driven release imbued with savage
axe-mastery and vintage spirit.” - The List (4/5)
· “Holy Mountain’s sonic amuse-bouche has done the trick,
then. ‘Earth Measures’ nods to the seminal glory of acts
like Black Sabbath, Lightning Bolt and Isis while
tantalisingly heralding the arrival of an exciting new force
in noise rock.” - The Line Of Best Fit
