For Holy Grail, it's not a throwback so much as a process of metal refinement. "Eli's goal with this record was to come up with 200 riffs," Luna explains. "And he came up with 187! So we had a lot to sift through, to boil it down to the album. We're definitely not retro-revivalists. We don't want to be over-indulgent or over-bore the listener. We just want to kick everyone's ass."
