DragonForce with Holy Grail and Huntress: The Gramercy Theater New York, NY April 22nd, 2012

April 23rd, 2012

DragonForce

with Holy Grail and Huntress

The Gramercy Theater – New York, NY

April 22nd, 2012

Review and pictures by Kyle Moore, the Metal Magnus

 

I got to see DragonForce back in Orlando in 2008, and was underwhelmed. They had fantastic energy and clearly were having lots of fun on stage, but (to nobody’s shock) their live rendition of their songs doesn’t begin to match what we hear on their crack-infused records. Four years later, I was excited to see how/if they had improved their live set, and how new vocalist Marc Hudson fit in.

CAULDRON: NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH HOLY GRAIL STARTS TONIGHT

April 15th, 2011
Cauldron - Burning Fortune

Cauldron - Burning Fortune

Canadian heavy metal trio CAULDRON are due to kick off a North American tour tonight with fellow heavy metal act HOLY GRAIL.

CAULDRON will be supporting HOLY GRAIL on all US dates, but due to an overwhelming demand from their home fans, CAULDRON will be co-headlining all shows in Canada and will play a longer set each night while in their homeland.

CAULDRON frontman JASON DECAY comments:

“Can’t wait to get back in the van for five weeks and pound some metal with the band and anyone else who cares to join us.  The drives too; looking forward to driving circles around North America as well, it’s about time!”

CAULDRON guitarist IAN CHAINS adds:

“We’re really looking forward to going out with Holy Grail.  We haven’t done a proper North American tour since December ’09, so we’re eager to get out there and play for the usual bangers and anyone who missed us the last time.  Expect a well-rehearsed set of mid-paced metal!  We’ll be playing a chunk of songs off the new album, as well as a couple of staples and the odd Witchfinder General cover.  Life is too short in Rapid City, so die slowly!”

HOLY GRAIL CND SALE STARTS NOW

April 14th, 2011

HOLY GRAIL

HOLY GRAIL

In celebration of HOLY GRAIL’s first ever headline tour in Canada, we are offering fans CRISIS IN UTOPIA for only 7.99 on Itunes Canada! Hurry fast, sale stops when their tour ends (May 01/2011).

http://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/crisis-in-utopia/id394595644

Crisis In Utopia was produced by former Nine Inch Nails member and A Perfect Circle collaborator Danny Lohner, Crisis In Utopia is loaded with instant fist-pumping classics like the title track and “Call Of Valhalla” alongside revamped versions of Improper Burial modern classics “Immortal Man” and “Fight To Kill.” Opener “My Last Attack” is especially impressive, showcasing Luna’s soaring pipes over a dizzying series of scorching twin leads and white-hot hooks. Elsewhere, insanely catchy jams like “Hollow Ground,” “Requiem” and “Chase The Wind” set an impossibly high standard for the next decade’s would-be arena anthems. Meanwhile, the instrumental interlude “Nocturne In D Minor” features guest shots from Anna Murphy and Meri Tadic of Swiss folk-metal luminaries (and recent tour mates) Eluveitie.

“the most exciting prefix-free metal band to come out of L.A. in the last two decades.” – Decibel Magazine

HOLY GRAIL ANNOUNCE U.S./CANADA TOUR WITH CAULDRON

March 1st, 2011

Fresh off a month long run with Eluveitie, Los Angeles’ Holy Grail will be teaming up with Canadian band Cauldron for a North American tour April 15th through May 12th. Holy Grail will close all U.S shows and Cauldron will close all Canadian dates. Local bands chosen by Holy Grail, Cauldron, and the tour’s promoters will fill out the bills in each market.

 

Holy Grail has been touring in support of their fall 2010 release, “Crisis in Utopia”, and has supported Exodus, Blind Guardian, and Eluveitie so far in the touring cycle. Prior to this tour, Holy Grail will be going to the UK for a co-headline tour with Roadrunner Records band Revoker.

 

Only assembled a few years 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, 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 Metal Hammer’s 2010 Golden God Awards in the “Best New Band’ category – quite an honor since they hadn’t even released a full-length album yet! Metal Hammer sums it up best: “With a killer name, awesome logo and a sound that is more metal than metal itself, Holy Grail are one of the most promising traditionally inclined metal bands to emerge from the US in the past decade…This is metal played with conviction and belief and you’re going to love it.”

BLIND GUARDIAN with Holy Grail – Best Buy Theater, New York, NY November 20th, 2010

December 9th, 2010

BLIND GUARDIAN

with Holy Grail

Best Buy Theater – New York, NY

November 20th, 2010

Words and pictures by Kyle Moore, the Metal Magnus



Blind Guardian has an extremely important place in my personal metal pantheon. Their seminal album NIGHTFALL IN MIDDLE-EARTH blew my teenage mind into little tiny pieces that still have to re-collect themselves whenever I give that CD a spin. I went out of my way to see their live show in Venice, Italy almost eight years ago as they were touring in support of A NIGHT AT THE OPERA and like many other fans, observed that frontman Hansi Kursch doesn’t quite have the vocal gusto in concert that he does in a recording studio. They nonetheless gave a fine performance, and I looked forward to seeing them at some later date. As it happened, that later date came one night after covering Epica’s concert – fresh after spending 90 minutes of my previous evening fawning over Epica’s flawless siren Simone Simons, tonight I got to stare up the nostrils of some of power metal’s gnarliest-looking veterans.
