Holy Grove release two tracks and artwork from debut album.

Ahoy, groove worshippers! Here is Oregon’s best kept secret and soon-to-be iconic rockers HOLY GROVE, led by one of the greatest female voices in the doom/heavy rock game. The band recently unveiled the artwork as well as two goosebump-inducing tracks for their upcoming debut “Holy Grove”, due out March 18th on Heavy Psych Sounds.
Check out new songs Death Of Magic and Nix
Remember when heavy rock bands wrote songs? In the early 70’s, Grand Funk, Bang and Deep Purple brought hooks and choruses to seriously weighty tunes. In 2015, Portland, Oregon’s HOLY GROVE walk in the footsteps of tradition, pitting soulful vocals, searing guitar solos, and swinging grooves into their own dinosaur stomp.
After wowing US audiences for two years, the doom blues outfit is now ready to deliver their self-titled debut, with seven tracks top-full of blazing riffage, cloud-piercing wails, and enough rhythmic heft to satisfy today’s doom-hungry audience. Andrea Vidal’s lyrics of myth and fantasy coast on a massive magic carpet of guitar licks, kept aloft by a pulverizing rhythm section. HOLY GROVE is far more than a toe-dipped-in-the occult spring, they produce a patiently-crafted statement of intent with major love and assistance from master “engine-ear” Billy Anderson (Sleep’s “Dopesmoker”, The Melvins).
