The Sword brings back a little bit of the doom of their earlier records while maintaining the hard rock sensibilities of Warp Riders
on their newest releaseApocryphon
. While not quite as good as Warp Riders
still has it's fair share of quality stoner riffs and catchy hooks. The return of some of the raw heaviness from their first two records was much appreciated as well and it gives these tracks a bit more of a crunch than those found on Warp Riders
won't win The Sword any new fans and it doesn't have nearly, but this gets the job done if you were a fan of them previously.
