The rock show was a success. Screaming groupies did line up around the block, held in check only by sword-and mace wielding guards of the awe-inspiring medieval rock band known as Relic. Finally, hair-metal aficionados and renaissance-faire enthusiasts have something to unite them. A band whose time has come or maybe actually passed sometime in the late 1980’s or 1500’s
Dressed in the style of King Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table they looked like the real thing. Real leg armor, mail and fog left you no doubt of how serious this band is. Relic’s backdrop, black lighted, scenes from the era left you wondering if you had just experienced some form of time warp. The music truly comes from within the souls of this band. Black knight eat your heart out.
Relic are freaks, this is for sure! Not only that they call their 70’s (Prog) rock influenced music “Medieval Art Rock” and use medieval poems and other texts for their lyrics, no, they perform live in full armours, I am talking about armours the knights used to wear. Relic definitely do not follow any trend, they do their very own thing. If you like this 70’s progressive art rock and you could imagine a mixture between Yes, old Pink Floyd, some Led Zeppelin aspects, King Crimson, (the heroes of the keyboarder), early Genesis and a little bit of early Rush.
