The Great Saunites are an Italian duo comprised of Leonard Kandur Layola (drums, effects, guitar, keyboards) and Atros (bass, keyboards,guitar,vocals). Formed in 2008, they have issued three full length albums (TGS, Delay Jesus ’68 and The Ivy) and appeared with noise act Canide and side project Lucifer Big Band on two split releases.
Describing their sound they harness hypnotic drumming along with heavy bass vibrations and spaced out samples. All elements contribute to create a dark mix of kraut and heavy rock. A potent collision of textures and themes in the name of Sabbath.
