Bio:

Originally formed as Galactic Grailknights. The band jokingly claim to be from a place called Grailham City, and to live in Castle Grailskull. This is a play on Castle Grayskull from the 80s toy range/cartoon series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.As part of their comedic "superhero" image, Grailknights' live show features stagehands wearing the costumes of their "nemesis" Dr Skull, and his henchmen Morph the Swarf and Urks the dragon.Sovereign Storm previously filled in for Lord Lightbringer as a live member before joining permanently in 2011.Sir Optimus Prime and Mac Death were joint lead vocalists until Death's departure, with Prime taking over all lead vocal duties at that point and reducing his role as guitarist.

Album:

With their sixth studio album, the Grailknights are back after 4 years.With their album Knightfall, released in 2018, they made it as far as Japan and sold out halls as support for Feuerschwanz on their "15 Jahre" tour. This also led to a close friendship that took them to the Strandkorb Metfest in Nuremberg in 2021, where "Turbo Boost" premiered with Ben Metzner (Prinz Hodenherz) from Feuerschwanz. For the title track Muscle Bound For Glory, they got Thomas Laszlo Winkler (Angus McFive), former frontman of Gloryhammer, on board.The album starts off strong with the album's title track Muscle Bound For Glory. With the support of Thomas Winkler, the Grailknights show where the hammer hangs on this power metal track. In the lyrics there are also allusions to Gloryhammer, Winkler's former band.Turbo Boost is lyrically and figuratively a successful tribute to the series "Knight Rider". The title line from the original series is played several times in the song. Ben Metzner delivers a brilliant duet together with Sir Optimus Prime. The chicks from Feuerschwanz also make a guest appearance in the video. For the video production, the Grailknights got themselves two KITT conversions and a Corvette for their arch-enemy Dr. Skull. At the end of the video there is a nice Easter Egg for all fans of the series.Legions Of Heroes addresses the Grailknights Battlechoir to rally and get ready for the ultimate battle. The song is characterised by powerful choruses.Cybone One has a "Billy Idol" touch and revolves around Dr Skull's secret super weapon. The song combines super hero metal with 80s synthwave.In the middle of the album follows the, as Sir Optimus Prime says, obligatory ballad, with Lights the Grailknights show their pensive side. The song addresses the Battlechoir, which has been sorely missing from the Grailknights over the past 2 years. But memory, cohesion and support have kept the lights on.The Grailknights are trapped in Dr Skull's Pinball Death Machine and the Battlechoir is to help free them. The song is a musical homage to these old slot machines. A strong power metal piece for which we wish we had a music video.With POWAA!!! the Grailknights honour themselves and the source of their strength, the Battlechoir and the holy grail, with synthetic sounds. The song is set up like an intro to a typical comic series, in which the individual Knights are introduced.The trip to Japan has influenced the Grailknights retrospectively, not that they just fulfilled a dream. Gojira is a thank-you to the Japanese fans, so the Grailknights also get support from Yuri from Rokshasa - a successful cooperation that should not only go down well in Japan. Godzilla unites his nuclear forces with the Grailknights in the fight against Dr. Skull.Skyward Thunder Punch is aimed at the ultimate warrior from a 90s video game. It is a clear signal against racists.With lots of synth sounds, the Grailknights ring in Fall Of A Kingdom. The Grailknights fight for good and bring down the kingdom of Dr. Skull. It is the era of heroes and the brave.The album closes with an epic song celebrating the victory with The Holy Grail. The quest and battle for the Holy Grail is sung about in powerful choruses. The song shows medieval influence, perhaps something the Grailknights took from their tour with Feuerschwanz.Conclusion:A strong album that will accompany the Grailknights on a great tour. Not only for nerds, this album again offers many songs to celebrate with. With three strong collaborations, the Grailknights show that they also have an influence on other bands.We are looking forward to the still pending music video for Muscle Bound For Glory, for which the Grailknights travelled especially to Thomas Winkler, and of course to the tour.
