Please see current dates below. More details and admat here Under the spiritual guidance of the forefathers of heavy psych, prog, and proto-metal, Mondo Drag has created an amalgamation of sounds the likes of which have not been heard for decades. The band's unique sound, and rare cohesion probably stems from the fact that core members John Gamino (keyboards, vocals), Nolan Girard, (guitar, synth) and Jake Sheley (guitar) grew up together and have been playing music with each other for 15 years.
Already touted by some as one of 2015's "Most Wanted", Holy Serpent and their majestic, self-titled record have been making sizable waves across the web this past year. Despite their relative youth, the band -- made up of guitar player/vocalist Scott Penberthy, guitarist Nick Donoughue, bassist Michael Macfie and drummer Richard Orr -- has become remarkably adept at turning out some of the heaviest, most offhand and authentic sounds around. New to the fold but possessed with wisdom beyond their years, through a hazy swagger and onslaught of distorted guitars they turn in a rawness reminiscent of Uncle Acid, Kyuss and fellow RidingEasy label mates Monolord. Snaking melancholia into swirling hypnotic psychedelia and crushing stoner rock and roll, Holy Serpent oozes sweet leafed grooves and tones from first to final riff.
