Austin metal band The Sword have their 3rd full length Warp Riders due out shortly. The whole albums is sci-fi themed which is totally fine by me because I've been on a Bladerunner/William Gibson/Neil Stevenson kick as of late. They may not be the most innovative band out there right now, but I am always up for some blatant Sabbath worship. Love the cover art for the new album by artist Dan McPharlin, who probably deserves his own post one of these days. Two part tack below.
