New York unit, largely studio-based: see www.holyfuckmusic.com

'The Holies' - as they are known to their many fans - (opponents choose another name) are Brian Borcherdt, Graham Walsh, Matt McQuaid, and Matt Schulz. Despite the blustering name, the band are a tight instrumental unit, working through a range of tempos and arrangements - 'progressive' film scores may well loiter within. If anything, the overall impression is of a band failing to live up to its name, or tragically misconceived, as a project.
I give it a 6.5
