Onslaught return to home soil celebrating the 30th anniversary of their legendary opus ‘The Force’, while Beholder will be delivering tracks from their highly acclaimed ‘Reflections’ album which has taken the band to the next level:
“Progressive edged metallers Beholder have impressed…excellently crafted and crushingly performed…this is without a doubt the most cohesive collection of songs that Beholder have put to their name to so far” – Metal Hammer

“Beholder meld the labyrinthine and the massive to imposing effect…it all hangs together with bloody minded, ass-kicking panache” – Kerrang!

Beholder frontman Simon Hall:  “Loving the thought of this tour already, and to be honest being on a bill with the mighty Onslaught and Anihilated means the punters get a real tour de force  ……. Tour de Force ….. get it? “
Onslaught guitarist Nige Rockett comments “We are well and truly stoked to announce our upcoming tour of the UK & Ireland this Autumn, by the time we hit the road in November it will be well over 2 and a half years since we did the last run, we feel the time is now right to bring things home once again. Everything is gonna be stripped back and brutal, just as Thrash Metal should be!”

ALBUM COVER

RELEASE DATE: 12th APRIL, 2016

British progressive metallers release their finest work to date with third album ‘Reflections’

‘SPEAK TO ME’ (Lyric Video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6lFhTKeFO8
‘FROZEN STEPS OF UTØYA’ (Lyric Video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfNjHd27I7M

“Progressive edged metallers Beholder have impressed…excellently crafted and crushingly performed…this is without a doubt the most cohesive collection of songs that Beholder have put to their name to so far” – Metal Hammer

 

Hailing from the UK, Beholder is a hard-hitting band that has been delivering the goods since 2003.
Having released the studio albums ‘The Awakening’ (2009) and ‘The Order of Chaos’ (2013) the band now embark on their most ambitious and accomplished album to date with the epic ‘Reflections’.

Beholder has been focused on producing an album that replicates their live ferocity, yet showcases creativity along with the desire to capture honest emotions and feelings and place within the melody of the song, whilst creating a fierce array of anthemic tracks that embrace both progressive rock and metal.

In previous releases Beholder have not held back from the fact they are proud of their heritage, yet disillusioned with much of the nation, and the world at large has to offer. This has shaped anger and frustration to the work, and although this remains, ‘Reflections’ is far more optimistic in its approach and has been interlaced with soaring melodies and uplifting chorus hooks to create something special.

‘Reflections’ offers ten tracks of relentless tunes that will leave the listener raising their fists, unleashing their voices and opening the hearts.

With Beholder’s close connection to their fans, the completion of the album was funded by a Kickstarter campaign that reached its initial target in less than two hours.

So it’s now official…Beholder are back!
