The California-based heavy metal troupe HOLY GRAIL kicked off a month-long summer tour with a mind-blowing headlining performance at Prosthetic Records‘ “West Coast Metal Meeting” on Saturday night in suburban Los Angeles. The show marked a return to the road for the group, who have spent the past several weeks tracking the as-yet-untitled follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2013 effort “Ride The Void” with Grammy-winning producer John Spiker, with an eye toward a late fall release. Stay tuned to the band’s website ( for updates.

HOLY GRAIL are no strangers to pounding the pavement in order to spread their powerful riffs and infectious shred across the continent. The quintet has previously shared the stages with acts such as Anthrax, Exodus, Amon Amarth, Dragonforce, Orange Goblin, Municipal Waste, Hellyeah and Blind Guardian, just to name a few. The band has also appeared at some of the heaviest and most popular festivals worldwide including Download (UK), Loud Park (Japan), Soundwave (Australia) and Wacken (Germany).
