Released this week as a 7″ vinyl single limited to just 500 pieces – a festive pressing of 250 green and 250 red – SEASONS BLEEDINGS finds San Diego’s HOLY GRAIL crash-landing their sleigh right here.
While they can’t top the majesty of the original releases, HOLY GRAIL put their spin on the KING DIAMOND ripper No Presents for Christmas for the A-side, with RAINBOW’s Kill the King on the B-side. For 8.6 minutes, the band pays tribute to a couple of classics while spreading holiday cheer to demons far and wide.
The 7″ release is certainly a curious collectible and future oddity that you may want to snag direct from the band’s webstore. For those of the digital inclination, a four-track iTunes edition includes a pair of covers (of JUDAS PRIEST and ACCEPT) that were originally included on the band’s out-of-print (OOP) debut EP.
