Metal veterans HOLY DRAGONS, are back with their FIFTEENTH studio album!
Hailing from Kazakhstan and having formed in the early 90s HOLY DRAGONS have remained faithful to their musical roots and have been consistent to their unique sound and style while of course throughout the years they have refined it more and more.
Speed is clearly evident in the band’s style which however includes references to traditional heavy metal as well as Hard Rock. Call them Speed/Heavy Metal or Speed/Power or NWOBHM and you’re spot on!
“Unholy and Saints” is the title of the band’s latest offering, a follow-up to 2016’s excellent “Civilizator”. As usual the old school heavy metal is there along with the shredding guitars but this new album includes a small surprise, particularly for long-time fans of the band. After a line-up change, the vocals are now handled by the band’s guitarist (and founding member) Chris "Thora Thorheim" Caine!

An absolutely beautiful composition through and through. The riffs and melodies are so tight and well crafted, with soaring lyrics that pull the whole story together. When I first heard Across the Ancient Dessert, I stopped what I was doing and my heart skipped a beat. I think it encapsulated every emotion I had reading the Chain of Dogs for the first time. That series means something special to me. I was already loving the album, and this song sold me immediately. This is really worth a listen. barleybase
