Strike First Records is proud to welcome to the family New Zealand’s Saving Grace.
The 4 piece Gisborne City hardcore metal hybrid have been making waves worldwide for a half decade during which the band’s list of accomplishments includes the release of a self titled Demo EP in 2005, a split with friends Upheld in 2006 and their highly anticipated studio album ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ in 2008 which received rave reviews across their homeland and beyond in USA and Europe, and took the band on a 35-date whirlwind tour across New Zealand, Australia, Mexico and USA.
Saving Grace’s hard work, dedication to touring and ever-growing fan base has gained the band the reputation of the most successful spirit-filled hardcore act downunder.
Playing a brutal style of music influenced by mid 90s hardcore bands such as Arkangel, Reprisal and Earth Crisis as well as legendary extreme metal classics Slayer, Sepultura, Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse, Saving Grace create a blend of brutal metallic hardcore unlike many of their modern day contemporaries.
Saving Grace will release their sophomore album entitled Unbreakable on Strike First Records in January 2010.
