HOLY GRAIL - “CRISIS IN UTOPIA”

HOLY GRAIL’S “CRISIS IN UTOPIA” CONFIRMED FOR OCTOBER 26TH RELEASE; ALBUM COVER ARTWORK REVEALED

SUPPORT DATES ON EXODUS NORTH AMERICAN TOUR CONTINUE


CRISIS IN UTOPIA, the debut album from Los Angeles’ rising star metal quintet Holy Grail has now been confirmed for an October 26th release date via Prosthetic Records.  CRISIS IN UTOPIA is produced by acclaimed producer/remixer/musician Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle) and features cover artwork by Andrei Bouzikov (Skeletonwitch, Municipal Waste).  To pre-order CRISIS IN UTOIA, please click here <http://store.prostheticrecords.com> .  Please click here <http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4219857/HGfinalcover.jpg> to download the album cover.  Holy Grail is currently on the road in supporting Exodus (please see below for tour dates).

Assembled a year ago, Holy Grail is already at the forefront of the new wave of metal that pays homage to such legends as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Dio.  The band’s debut EP IMPROPER BURIAL (released in late 2009), featuring just two original tracks and two covers, has earned Holy Grail significant press accolades including a 2-page feature in hometown paper LA Weekly, a spot on Decibel’s “25 Most Anticipated Releases Of 2010” list and inclusion on Metal Hammer’s “Guide To The Best In The Upcoming New Wave Of Trad Metal.”  Holy Grail was also recognized with a nomination for the Metal Hammer’s Golden God Awards this year in the “Best New Band’ category – quite an honor since they haven’t even released a full-length album yet!  With monster vocals, not one, but two guitar virtuosos and a thundering rhythm section, Holy Grail’s sound is at once classic, yet contemporary, encompassing the best of traditional metal with a youthful spirit.
