Warp Riders by The Sword
Released: Aug 2010
Label: Kemado Records
The third record from Austin stoner metal band The Sword, Warp Riders manages to shut up any naysayers whispering about indie rock roots with its fluttering riffs and suitably spaced-out tough-guy vocals. The band's love for Zeppelin may be the most interesting thing about them (check the awesome drumming on "Lawless Lands"), but it's when they manage to channel Captain Beyond's "Dancing Madly Backwards" (again on "Lawless Lands") that they become more than just hipster metal; down-tuned guitars always sound good.
