Holy Grail To Give Fans Seasons Bleedings

Holy Grail have announced the release of a holiday-themed 7-inch, "Seasons Bleedings," which will be limited to 500 copies (250 red, 250 green), and will be available digitally on Dec. 6 and ship to customers shortly thereafter.

The release includes covers of King Diamond's "No Presents For Christmas" and the Rainbow classic "Kill The King," and features artwork by Sam Turner (3 Inches of Blood). This marks the first time that guitarist Alex Lee (ex-Bonded By Blood), who joined Holy Grail in the spring, has recorded with the group.

The digital version of "Seasons Bleedings" will also include covers of Judas Priest's "Exciter" and Accept's "Fast As A Shark," both of which originally appeared on the group's out-of-print debut EP "Improper Burial." (A limited number of "Improper Burial" 7-inches, which do not include the covers, are still available.)

Vocalist James Paul Luna commented: "Back when EJ and I first talked about doing a X-mas 7" the first song that came to mind was "No Presents for Christmas" so I'm pretty happy to see that came to fruition. Eli was listening to lots of Rainbow at the time so naturally "Kill The King" was our immediate second choice. Even though these versions can't out-do the legendary originals by King and Dio I feel pretty happy and excited to see this released on vinyl."

Guitarist Eli Santana added: "It was pretty rad because after all the touring we've done the past year we got to get back into recording mode and test the waters plus have fun with it before settling down to work on the album."
