BEHOLDER & CAMBION – WEEKEND WARRIORS

BEHOLDER SHORT UK TOUR ANNOUNCED


Focused on the writing and recording of their third album, this short run tour will be a welcome break away from the studio and will quite possibly save the band from going ever more insane!

Joining us will be Tech Metallers CAMBION along with a raft of local support from acts such as INTERNAL CONFLICT, LINE OF FIRE, OVERTHROW and plenty more to be announced.

Much larger tour is being scheduled for once the new album is complete, but this will be your first chance to hear some ALL NEW material

Beholder are looking to you guys to make this the best attended run possible so we ask you to join the events page for the show your most likely to be attending and be sure to spread this to all.

BEERMAGEDDON REVIEW

PhotoNow Beholder are one of the finest British acts I’ve seen in recent years. There’s a reason for this. They each have a passion for music that you tend to not see in the corporate music world. Self managed, self promoting, utterly outgoing Beholder could quite possibly be the model for how bands of the future should be. This set, on this stage, was, and is a message. No more. No more bullying, no more greed, no more corruption, no more bullshit. Beholder have been labelled “too old school metal”. That’s because that’s what they do. They’ve been labelled “Too controversial” seriously? Really? Come on… Controversy is what Rock & Roll, Heavy Metal, Punk, Thrash, Rap and even Classical music have been based around since the dawn of their respective inceptions. I’m going to try and side-step a rant and stick to the performance, but for this industry to say that about one of the up and coming bands is… Well, it’s no surprise Beholder don’t like you either.

And they let it all out on the Beermageddon Stage. This is personal to them. It’s personal to the crowd. When frontman Simon Hall gets off the stage to talk to the crowd of kids at the front and is talking about bullying and being yourself, Simon has obviously touched a nerve and he is upset. Not at the fact he brought it up, but you can tell he’s directly addressing a victim. This will not stand he tells the crowd. This is emotion. This is dedication. This is the headlining set that most festivals miss out on, because the fans & the bands simply cannot connect. This is British Heavy Metal at it’s best. Ripping through their 2013 “The Order of Chaos” album and beyond Beholder are the Saturday headliner you expect and more. Utterly mesmerising, utterly intense, completely Thrash.

HEADBANGERS BALL REVIEW

Beholder

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Review from Headbangers Ball headline show.

Headliners Beholder took to the stage and crowd doubled in size almost at a stroke!  These guys are good, full on at what they do and the crowd certainly responded very well.  The hook lines have the complexity to draw you in and Beholder are becoming one of the most prized metal acts around.  Their EP, The Order Of Chaos promises so much and very definitely delivers.  Front man Simon Hall certainly knows how to get his feelings across to his audience and shows a depth of passion that leaves you in no doubt as to where he stands.

It was a great ending to what can only be described as a day of pure metal and heavy rock indulgence served up by some of the finest live acts in the UK.  To all those that made the Headbangers Balls tour happen, we should pass on our grateful thanks.

Review by Carl Pickles

Hands up if you miss Pantera, and think “no-one makes ‘em like that anymore”. Well, the first part of the statement is fair enough, but the second part of it makes you a bit of an idiot. There are quite a few bands who “make ‘em like that”. Beholder are one of them. Fusing a certain level of anger and brutality that is very familiar to the Texans with razor-sharp riffage is something that the Midlands wrecking crew, fronted by former Handsome Beasts’ frontman, Simon Hall, are really rather good at. This band are one of the UK’s best kept secrets, which is unfortunate for them and the rest of the world.

The Order Of Chaos then, is Beholder’s second full album, following 2009’s The Awakening. As with the debut album, this is a real statement of intent. This album grips you…

AVE NOCTUM – ORDER OF CHAOS REVIEW

“This is an album with not a single ‘filler track’, each sounding like it was crafted by metal musicians with heart rather then a bean counting ad man, all the while transcending sub-genres”.

BEHOLDER – SPLINTER (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Splinter – taken from the 2013 release THE ORDER OF CHAOS by UK Metallers BEHOLDER.

Spitting bile from the vaults of deceit and frustration, Beholder return with their strongest and most complete album to date. Fiercely proud to be British yet disillusioned with much the Nation offers has meant anger, frustration and pure bloody fury has lyrically shaped this album as an all out attack! With undeniable hook lines, complexity and brutal delivery that will draw you in kicking and screaming as we again point scorn and derision at a world marked by massive inequalities of wealth and power.

Filmed by Jordan Saunders, who is an independent film maker and has serviced video’s for the likes of Flayed Disciple, Dishonour The Crown, Eyes Of Solitude and many more this is a perfect visual representation of the Beholder message. Check out Jordan’s work at http://www.facebook.com/blahblahwahwah

“”At times mournful, at times incredibly violent, ‘The Order Of Chaos’ delivers 12 tracks of unbridled, unglorified passion, this isn’t an album that could be faked; you cannot fail to come away from this feeling the inherent emotional charge.”

If Pantera and Nevermore had a hate child it would be Beholder!

“The Order Of Chaos” has bloody knuckles from all the punches it throws, but it chooses its victims carefully and deservedly – With groove, melody, refreshing dynamism and a big middle-finger salute to ignorance everywhere”
