Proving the age-old adage that hard work and dillegence pay off in the end, Los Angeles heavy metallists' HOLY GRAIL are reaping in the benefits as their third album, "Times of Pride and Peril", has debuted at #9 on Billboard's New Artists chart, #14 on the Hard Music Chart and #35 on Independent Artists chart while scanning over 1500 copies within it's first week of release.
Receiving notoriety from LA Weekly for "keeping the art of shred alive and well" while comparing the band to some of the genre's most reputable acts: Anthrax, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, HOLY GRAIL are waving the flag of heavy metal wide and loud without any inhibitions on their new release. Recorded by Grammy-winning producer John Spiker (Tenacious D, Filter), "Times of Pride and Peril" presents 10 tracks "full of fist-bangin’ anthems aplenty” (Decibel) which share the story of the rise and fall of an empire.
HOLY GRAIL were most recently seen acting as direct support for iconic metal guitarist Marty Friedman (ex-Megadeth, Cacophony) across the U.S. earlier this month and are currently embarked on an extensive jaunt across North America with Black Tusk.
