doomdruidmaster Heavy, bluesy doom with powerful vocals. Imagine if Grace Slick were the singer of Saint Vitus, and there you have it. Favorite track: Holy Grove.

muschiosauro Superbly rich and strong female vocals blend with a rock solid band in an awesome and entrancing stoner blues ride replete with thick riffs, searing solos and thundering grooves. Favorite track: Death of Magic.

neldinsky The most badass gal singer in the heavy rock world AND she's supported by GREAT songs played by a KILLER band riffing like banshees. This is exceptional heavy retro 70's doom that we love. Heart singing with Sabbath or Zeppelin. It's that great. NB Favorite track: Death of Magic.

about

Holy Grove Portland, Oregon

Holy Grove is a band of true believers―blurring the lines between classic heavy metal, doom, and prog, unafraid to take long, strange trips, peel off shit-hot guitar solos, and scream as if their lives depend on it.

The band has supported the likes of Yob, Wayne Kramer’s MC50, Windhand, Elder, and High On Fire, even earning a slot on the prestigious Psycho Las Vegas festival.
