Go On A Cosmic Journey with The Sword!

Posted by on Sat, Dec 8, 2012 at 11:52 AM

(Neumos) When I asked Sword guitarist Kyle Shutt how to describe his band's third studio album, Warp Riders, at an interview a couple years back, he went off on a foggy yet suspenseful tangent about cosmic journeys and unearthing orbs. Clearly, these dudes know how to write solid stoner metal. Thing is, they also know how to write classic-rock-sounding melodies, and they do so flawlessly, weaving heavy riffs with catchy, memorable hooks. Being multilayered, the band fits on bills alongside High on Fire or Metallica, crossing over to a territory few can call home.
