Below is our complete Holy Grail news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Heavy metal and video games are such an obvious combination that its baffling the collision doesn't happen more often. Despite four decades of games to work through, the number of titles that specifically revolve around metal themes or use heavy metal soundtracks is just abysmally low.
Today we're going to take another look at the limited options available, covering some old and some new entries that should be sitting on your shelf or taking up space in your Steam library.
For those who missed our previous three articles discussing various games with heavy metal soundtracks, be sure to go back and check 'em out (and let us know if you end up playing or re-playing any of these gems!):
Part 1: the amazing Brutal Legend, Saints Row III, Killing Floor 2, Pain Killer, and Guilty Gear X2 Reload
Part 2: Splatterhouse, Twisted Metal 2, The Witcher's bonus music disc, and Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost And The Damned.
Part 3 (the retro edition!): Rock And Roll Racing, Beavis And Butthead, F-Zero X, Earthbound, and Heavy Metal Geomatrix

Following an extensive tour campaign to promote 2013 release "Ride The Void," the group spent much of 2014 writing this as-yet-untitled new release. Guitarist Eli Santana and drummer Tyler Meahl also kept busy by touring extensively with Huntress, whose lead guitarist Blake Meahl is Tyler’s brother.
Last month, Holy Grail triumphantly returned to the stage with a live performance at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California during the home opener of the L.A. Kiss arena football team. The band expects to announce Summer tour dates in the coming weeks.
Orange Goblin has checked in with the following announcement about an upcoming North American tour:
"We are very happy to announce that Orange Goblin will return to perform at venues throughout the USA and Canada this Autumn.

Kicking off in New Orleans on September 27, the band will visit 38 cities around the United States and Canada before concluding in Nashville on November 9.
"Support on the tour will come from Holy Grail and Lazer/Wulf. The trek finds the band continuing a year-long commitment to performances in support of their latest studio album, 'A Eulogy For the Damned' (2012), and their first live CD/DVD 'A Eulogy Foe The Fans - Orange Goblin Live 2012' released earlier this year.
"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! In fact, Clutch's own Neil Fallon was recently seen on 'That Metal Show' on US television wearing an Orange Goblin Shirt and proclaiming them to be one his favourite bands!" More...
