Review Brief: The Sword – Warp Riders 
I have always found it very difficult to dislike The Sword. They always take me back to the good times of the mid-90s when there were so many blistering riff-assaults from the likes of Corrosion of Conformity, Monster Magnet, and Kyuss. The Sword is one of the few bands today that keep the flame alive. Warp Riders is a Sci-Fi concept album that rips, tears, and grooves. You know, it makes you proud to represent the metal flag. If I was in a band, it would sound a lot like these guys—very heavy yet very chill.
