[STRAIGHT-UP HEAVY METAL] One of the best heavy rock albums to arrive this year is Ride the Void, the second full-length from Holy Grail. The Pasadena-based quintet tosses together elements of vintage thrash, speed and power metal for an old-school sound that should delight folks still lamenting Metallica’s slow and steady decline. And on its latest album, it thrills in lyrics that encourage an oncoming apocalypse followed by “Rains of Sorrow.” Joining the band on this tour is labelmate Anti-Mortem, a quintet from Oklahoma that manages to sew a little Southern boogie into its thudding hard-rock attack.
