"This rigorous schedule has seen them perform in over 25 countries across the globe, ensuring that the band is firing on all cylinders and maintaining their reputation as one of the fiercest and most exciting live bands on the planet!

Holy Grail Signs With Nuclear Blast

Nuclear Blast Records has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Holy Grail:

"Hailing from Pasadena in Southern California, North American up-and-comers Holy Grail have offered a unique blend of traditional tunes in the vein of the legendary NWoBHM and influences of several contemporary heavy metal subgenres since their inception in 2008. Now, after numerous celebrated festival appearances (Wacken:Open:Air & British Download Festival among others) and extensive touring together with famous bands of the order of Blind Guardian, Exodus, and Eluveitie, the time is right to take this more than promising quintet to the next level. In that regard, Nuclear Blast Records are proud to announce the Europe-wide signing of Holy Grail!"

Nuclear Blast A&R Jaap Wagemaker comments: “Already after we’d listened to their debut EP 'Improper Burial,' it became pretty obvious that Holy Grail - offering a modern version of the old-school heavy metal we’ve grown up with - were the most exciting metal band to emerge from the county of L.A. within the last two decades, as renowned American Decibel magazine had put it. After Metal Hammer UK had nominated the band as 'best new band' at the Metal Hammer Awards even before they had even released their debut album 'Crisis in Utopia,' we knew we had to keep an eye on them. All over Europe, music magazines loved that record and celebrated it by publishing rave reviews. And ever since we’ve seen them playing two awesome shows at Wacken:Open:Air and British Download Festival, there was no doubt whatsoever that Holy Grail were bringing the leather and steel to a new generation of metal heads. So watch out for Holy Grail’s second coming in 2013!!!” More...
