Holy Monitor - 2015 - Aeolus

Holy Monitor is a psychedelic rock band from Athens, Greece. Aeolus is their second EP, the follow up to debut EP Golden Light. Holy Monitor play a psychedelic brand of rock, infusing their stomping tunes with layers of noise, distortion and fuzz. Sometimes they focus on the groove of the song while at other points the riffs are overwhelming. Either way the  fuzz layered songs come straight at you enveloped in a haze. Bend The Trees is dirgy without sacrificing riffs with whispered vocals and a sweet solo and Winterlong pulls back to one riff behind to focus on the dirge with chant like vocals. If you enjoyed Golden Light are are looking for more psychedelic rock to swirl about then Aeolus will serve well.
