Description

The Shining Path sound like they were created expressly to join the Holy Mountain lineup. Each of the four tracks on their self-titled debut starts smack in the middle of crashing crescendos and freak-outs, and keeps rising. But the band is actually an outgrowth of Monosov/Swirnoff (the duo of guitarist Ilya Monosov and multi-instrumentalist Preston Swirnoff), who have crafted two LPs of wide-ranging sound for the Eclipse label. When that pair adds drummer Brandon Relf, their path shines but also narrows, hewing to chugging beats and sky-seeking guitar wank.-Marc Masters, pitchfork.com
