“metal so pure – so precise, so shredding, so full of doom – there’s almost something hyper-real about it.”
-Rolling Stone

“their more ambitious and expansive album to date”

Texas metal titans TheSword have just unleashed their gorgeous outer space video for “Lawless Lands,” directed by Artificial Army. It is the second part of the video trilogy they’ve filmed for their new album, Warp Riders (out now onKemado Records). If you didn’t catch the premiere, click HERE to watch it. The clip is a 70’s sci-fi inspired trip that provides a visual companion to the album’s epic storyline, though it’s just as fun to watch without following the plot. If you didn’t catch the first part in the series, click HERE to watch the video for “TresBrujas.”

Having opened for legends like Metallica, Ozzy, andMotorhead, and with songs featured in multiple editions of Guitar Hero, The Sword have cemented their reputation as one of the most significant metal bands of their generation. The guys are currently on a headlining US tour in support of Warp Riders, which debuted at #49 on the Billboard Top 200.The album was produced byMatt Bayles (Mastodon,Pearl Jam, Isis) and finds the band expanding beyond pure metal to incorporate hard rock a la Thin Lizzy and ZZ Top into their scorching sound.
