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’ on Chemikal Underground.
Adding a pinch of Sun Ra attitude and a splash of Deep Purple-flavoured keyboards to the trio's signature gumbo of Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix and Iron Monkey, Ancient Astronauts is a quantum leap on from debut mini-album Earth Measures, a six-track manifesto recorded in just 17 hours. Though constructed on similar principles - overdub-free rhythm tracks, "feel" taking priority over technique, wholehearted surrender to The Riff – ‘Ancient Astronauts’ is more expansive in outlook, its scope multiplied hundredfold.
The album follows up 2012 mini-album ‘Earth Measures’ and is set for release on 7th April 2014.
