Black Holiday celebrate two decades of metal mayhem with the iconic album "Black Holiday"

Get ready to celebrate two decades of metal mayhem as Lockout Music proudly announces the 20th anniversary re-release of the iconic album "Black Holiday" by the legendary band Black Holiday. Originally one of the premier metal acts to emerge from Southern California in the early 2000s, Black Holiday carv ed a path of destruction through the metal scene with their unique blend of melodic death metal and California thrash.

Having shared stages with giants like Slayer, System of a Down, and In Flames, Black Holiday quickly became a force to be reckoned with. In 2003, they unleashed their full-length self-titled album on Keeper Music, the revered metal magazine turned record label, and were even featured on the cover of Keeper Magazine. This album showcased the band's prowess with intricate guitar lines, unforgettable melodies, and a relentless energy that captured the essence of American Blackened Death Metal.

Following their debut album, Black Holiday continued to leave their mark with the release of "The Possession" EP in 2005, further solidifying their status as underground metal icons. Now, Lockout Music is thrilled to re-release both the full-length album "Black Holiday" and the EP "Possession," allowing fans old and new to experience the raw power and timeless appeal of this Melodic Death Metal classic.

Mixing the pace and melody of the big Swedish bands with the urgency of California thrash, as well as the darkness and musical chops of black metal, Black Holiday blazed a trail through the LA/Orange County metal scene that still resonates today. With their re-released albums, Lockout Music invites metalheads everywhere to rediscover this hidden gem and raise their devil horns in celebration of two decades of Black Holiday.
