September 23rd, 2011

New York based Rock/Metal/Gothic band HolyHell have announced veteran John Macaluso as their new drummer and celebrate their new arrival with a free download of one of their first live appearances together.

HolyHell and Macaluso first played together in March 2011 with performances in sold-out shows in Worcester, MA and Cleveland, OH.

“The energy was so amazing, you can hear it effortlessly in the performances, said HolyHell front woman and songwriter Maria Breon. “We want to share this experience with our fans! Join us on Facebook – and on the road!”

Macaluso has been the recording and touring drummer for world-renowned acts, such as Yngwie Malmsteen, ARK, James LaBrie (Dream Theater), TNT, Riot, Powermad, Starbreaker, Chris Caffery and KRS-One.

“Johnny Mac” is a perfect fit for HolyHell. The band sounds killer!” adds Joe Stump

The band is working on their new album, set for release in 2012.

The next opportunity to witness the infernal energy of HolyHell & Macaluso are two upcoming shows in November: Nov. 18, at the “Dublin Pub” New Hyde Park, Long Island, NY and Nov. 19, at the “Starland Ballroom” in Sayreville, NJ

Metal Female Voices Fest in Belgium

Metal Female Voices Fest in Belgium

Magic Circle Music recording artists HOLYHELL will take Belgium by storm for the first time ever at the Metal Female Voices Fest VIII at Oktoberhallen in Wieze, Belgium on October 24, 2010. The goth/power metal sensations have been racking up some pretty hefty worldwide touring miles over the last five years and the MFVF organizers sought them out as this year’s very special guest based on the band’s growing reputation as a stellar live act. HOLYHELL’s eponymous, full-length Magic Circle debut was released in the US and Canada on June 8th and the band is also participating in the label’s forthcoming tribute CD, “Magic – A Tribute to Ronnie James Dio,” with a monstrous live rendition of one of Dio’s all time classics “Holy Diver.”

MFVF is a Metal festival dedicated to female-fronted bands and has been running since 2003. It takes place every year in Belgium, most recently at Oktoberhallen in Wieze. The growing success of the festival comes from its unique concept, but also from past appearances by Epica, Nightwish, After Forever, Tarja and many others. This year’s line-up includes Arch Enemy, Revamp, Leaves’ Eyes and now, thanks to the fans, HOLYHELL.
