Holy Grail -- Baltimore, MD -- July 1st, 2013

Full review w/ ok pix

Saw Holy Grail with a couple locals (Area 52, Strong Intention). About 50 people were at this show- not a bad turnout for a damn Monday show. (Lillian Axe had about the same amount of people for a Friday show...)

Area 52 was not very good, kind of like a beginner's Arsis.
Strong Intention was good if you like hardcore/thrashy/punky. I thought they had great energy, but I couldn't differentiate their songs. Entertaining!

Holy Grail played about an hour- a short set, but for $10, not bad. The sound system SUCKED, and hindered the enjoyment a bit. Overall they played a very good setlist (including a fantastic Rainbow cover \m/), and though the sound paled in comparison to the time they opened for Anthrax at the Fillmore, Silver Spring.

The mix was going in and out- so some songs sounded clearer than others. This place clearly doesn't host many heavy shows. Other than that a very good show!
