"Ten Days of Criminally Under-Appreciated Albums." Day Eight: Holy Grail, “Ride the Void”
Admittedly, when I first saw #HolyGrail
live while touring in support of their first album, I wrote them off as a young band trying to replicate #NWOBHM
era bands (and maybe even a little Manowar). Which is why I was blown away when I first heard their second album #RideTheVoid
. While there’s still plenty of classic metal influences on the record, I am still blown away at how modern and fresh it sounds. I often described it as a hybrid of #Anthrax
without sounding forced or hokey at all. Songs like “Take It To The Grave” and “Silence The Scream” still make me wonder why this album didn’t get more buzz.
Anyways, I nominate @benjammin_jammin.
