Chicago’s CRUSADIST Announce The Unholy Grail Debut; Title Track Streaming

Death/thrash metal quintet Crusadist will release debut album The Unholy Grail on November 29. A lyric video for the album's first single, the title track, is available below.

In March of 2019 Crusadist entered Belle City Sound in Racine, Wisconsin to begin recording The Unholy Grail with producer/engineer Chris Djuricic (Origin, Jungle Rot, November's Doom, Gorgasm, Against The Plagues). Mixing and Mastering duties were then handled by Jeramie Kling ( The Absence, Venom Inc.) and Taylor Nordberg (The Absence, Soilwork) of Smoke and Mirrors Productions in Spring Hills Florida. The cover art was created by Swedish Artist Par Olofsson (Immolation, Exodus, Unleashed, Aborted, Braindrill, Against The Plagues).   

The Unholy Grail will be available on all major digital distributors, as well as on physical format in digipaks. The digipak layout was designed by Ryan Kasparian of Burial Clothing in Eerie, Colorado.

In support of the release, Crusadist has a string of shows booked in the surrounding states in the Midwest region and have teamed up with Mikael Parks of World Forge Booking & Touring to work on tour dates beginning March 20 - April 6, 2020.
