Maybe I'm wrong, but I get the impression The Holy Mountain don't get the love they deserved. One reason may be that they operated at time when every other crusty hardcore band was being given the FAR/Tragedy treatment in reviews. At first it was complimentary; then it became code for trendy bandwagoners; then it got to be a ridiculous deterrent. It sucks that probably a lot of bands and records lay as casualties in mass musical graves because of this. So this is my one song tribute to one powerful band that played dark, crusty, Japanese and Swedish influenced hardcore, and did a rip-roaring job of it. If you like them, go to No Idea records and pick up a bunch of their stuff for super cheap, then check out the band ABC Weapons (Australia) for a similar sound. If you already know this band, you've done the above already. "Slaves" comes from the "Entrails" LP, and it rules. Feel free to share your favorite HM song, or a post-Tragedy/HHIG band that deserves mention.
