The concept of skate-rock has been around for many years, but it has never been embodied as well as on “Temples”, the new album by Holy Serpent. While the band members are just casual skateboarders themselves, one might be tempted to think that skating has subtly influenced the band’s sound. Not only in the elements of 70s hard rock crossed with punk values and energy. But, the music itself is like riding a skateboard: slow grooving passages can shift on a dime into fast thrill-ride riffs. Theres an exhilarating freedom of movement and unpredictability to the sound.
Holy Serpent created an interesting album with “Temples”. With five songs only, the band hypnotizes you and takes you away into a different sphere. The music on “Temples” is far off any order, structure and patterns. Plain free flowing sounds form into an adventure for the ears. The songs are mainly instrumental. Vocals are rare on this album and just as individual as the sounds. The album will fascinate you because it sounds like nothing you have ever heard before.
“Temples” is the brand new release by the guys of Holy Serpent. It sure is an interesting piece of music. Check it out and make up your mind about it.
