Music often instigates a connection. Melbourne, Australia's Holy Serpent instantly bonded over a healthy diet of The Beatles, Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Witchcraft, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, and The Melvins in 2014. Their shared passion for riffs, reefer and righteous half-pipes then blossomed into writing songs together. The quartet's magnetism billows out from under a THC-spiked haze of doom riffs and psychedelic rock bombast. It's hypnotic.
