In this week’s sexy edition of new Loud Rock, we see Holy Grail release one of the best album of the year so far with Ride the Void. It’s in the same vein as new classic metal, with a thrashy spin thrown on it. If you’re into some older stuff, like Judas Priest or Iron Maiden, definitely check this out.

On the other side of the genre map, black metal outfit Lightning Swords of Death release a very solid effort with Baphometic Chaosivm. Definitely check this stuff out. January is shaping up to be a really great month for metal.
