"Gyrosophy" streams/downloads

by Fat 12. December 2015 19:19

According to our distributor, as of today "Gyrosophy" should be available for streams/downloads from all the major online music stores: iTunes (link), Apple Music (link), Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play, Deezer, Simfy Africa, Yandex, ClaroMusica and others. That said, we recommend Bandcamp as the best site for purchasing the web version of the album since that is currently the only way you can support the band directly.

 

"Gyrosophy" release date announced!

by Fat 8. December 2015 00:03

Yes, it is official: our new album is to be released on the web on 12 December 2015! Streams/downloads will initially be available from Bandcamp and other major online music stores such as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc. The release of the CD version is slated for Spring 2016.

The album clocks in at 47 minutes. It contains 8 tracks, four songs and four instrumentals, and features gorgeous cover art by Edvards Percevs, drummer in Latvian black-metal band Eschatos.

 

Gearing up for the next show

by Fat 7. December 2015 01:18

Yeah, right... Our next show will take place on Saturday, 12 December 2015, and we will be sharing the stage with Flying Fish, which means our guitarist Quizz who plays in both bands will have a far busier night than the rest of us.

 

Two things have to be said about the upcoming gig. First: it's dedicated to a web serial project titled "Traces of Nowhere", produced, written and direced by Flying Fish's own Dmitry Rumyantsev; watch the first episode, featuring Holy Lamb's Aigars and Ansis as cops, here. Second: the wait for "Gyrosophy", the fourth Holy Lamb album, is officially over! As the web release date coincides with that of the show, we will actually "publish" the album on the internet during the event! A detailed news bit about "Gyrosophy" is to follow shortly, so stay tuned and come along to "A Nice Place" next Saturday if you're in Rīga!

 

HL to perform at the RockUp festival Saturday, 8 August

by Fat 2. July 2015 22:20

On 8 August 2015, Holy Lamb will make their first Latvian festival appearance in years! It is called RockUp and there's a dedicated website in Latvian with details on all the performers, all of them wonderful Latvian rock/blues bands and artists; the festival also has its own Facebook page.

 

In light of the upcoming festival, which will take place at a nice countryside camping site some 40 kilometres away from Rīga, this Sunday (5 July) at midnight HL keyboardist Juris and bassist/vocalist Aigars will be having a friendly chat with the organizer of the event who also happens to be the host of a Radio Naba programme titled Partitūra. To complement the chat, a couple of tracks from the band's new album, Gyrosophy, will be premiered, so feel free to tune in if interested. 

 

Best,
HL


Expect new video footage from HL soon!

by Fat 24. March 2015 18:32

It's been a while again since the last time we posted anything on our website. Yeah, it remained offline for several months last year, but now it's back with some good news.

First and foremost, we have to say that the recording sessions for our new album 'Gyrosophy' were completed last November, then the whole thing went off to Mr Mehmet Ugur Memis in Ankara, Turkey, who is currently working on the mixdown likely soon to be over. The artwork for the album is also in the making, so we had this idea to break the silence before it breaks itself. :) Right, we spent a few hours shooting a video in February in our very own rehearsal studio, and we are looking forward to sharing the result with you some time later this spring.

Here's a couple of pics taken by our guitarist/mastermind Ansis Markauss that night were setting up the lighting stuff and cameras.

 

 

Drum and Bass Tracks Done

by Fat 26. August 2012 21:13

With basic drum tracks and bass parts recorded in late August and at different times between that and early October, respectively, 'Gyrosophy' is starting to take shape.

 

Meanwhile, keyboard parts are coming in: Advox has done a tremendous job recording at home during weekends, and the sounds we have heard so far are exactly what the music requires. Lots of Hammond, exquisite soloing, lush synth strings and almost anything else one might ask for. Likewise, Quizz has come up with a few home demos of his guitar parts while getting ready for studio work. Depending on studio availability, his sessions are likely to be scattered across the rest of October and the first half of November.

 

Pics from the drum recording session (with a little bass guitar) can be viewed here.
