Austin metal band The Sword gives away first single from new 'Warp Riders' LP

Even the title is cool: “Warp Riders,” the third record from Austin metal stalwarts The Sword, is due Aug. 24 on Kemado Records.

As you would expect from a band given to conceptual suites built around the sludgy sound of old-school metal with lyrics drawn from Norse mythology and sci-fi writers like Arthur C. Clarke, the new record is an epic narrative full of fanstastic imagery and ass-kicking guitar riffs.

If the six weeks until Aug. 24 seems like a long time to wait for such a mind-bending metal adventure, don’t despair: lead single “Tres Brujas” is available for your listening pleasure right now:
