Los Angeles heavy metal rockstars HOLY GRAIL are eager to present the highly awaited followup to 2012’s Billboard charting, critic favourite “Ride the Void”. Their latest offering, due out February 2016 , is titled “Times of Pride and Peril” and was recorded earlier this year with Grammy award winning producer John Spiker (Tenacious D, Filter). Featuring 10 tracks of solid, classic heavy metal the album meshes the band’s definitive sound with even catchier vocals and shredding solos while conceptually showcasing the rise and fall of a kingdom.
The band will spend the rest of the year on the road with acts including King Diamond, Death Angel, Flotsam and Jetsam and Night Demon. Since their last release, the band have appeared with the likes of Anthrax, Exodus, Orange Goblin and Wednesday 13 in addition to playing at the nationally televised opening home game for the LA KISS arena football team.
Decibel Magazine recently claimed, “You’d have to go back 20 years to find a metal record that achieves this level of instant infectiousness,” while praising vocalist James Paul Luna as “the finest metal singer of his generation."
