The Holy are a Finnish alternative rock band formed in Helsinki in 2014. Their highly anticipated sophomore album Mono Free dom will be released 17th April 2020. The quintet has been shaking the ground of the Nordic music scene since the release of their debut EP More Escher And Random Notes in 2016.
Mixes of post-punk, Bruce Springsteen and Peter Gabriel with Krautrock influences are often mentioned when speaking about The Holy's well crafted sound and songwriting.
Hailing from one of the darkest countries in the world, The Holy are known for their Nordic melancholy, highly explosive live shows and for the unusual band formation that includes two drummers who keep the pulse high at all times. Lead singer Eetu Henrik Iivari's tense and timeless voice and the guitar loaded wall of sound often makes you feel comfortably uncomfortable.
