The Helsinki based alternative rock band released their highly anticipated sophomore album Mono Freedom in October 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 always keep the pulse high. Lead singer Eetu Henrik Iivari’s tense and timeless voice and the guitar loaded wall of sound often makes you feel comfortably uncomfortable.
The Holy have travelled a long way performing all the major Finnish festivals, as well as touring across Europe.
The Holy’s debut album Daughter gathered praise both in Europe and Finland, resulting in an EMMA-nomination (Finnish Grammy) for Critics’ Choice in 2019.
The Holy are: Eetu Henrik Iivari - Vocals, Guitar, Pyry Peltonen – Guitar, Laura Kangasniemi – Bass, Mikko Maijala – Drums, Eero Jääskeläinen – Drums
