Texan riff masters The Sword have released the third and final installment of their 3-song mini-series – Conquest Of Quarantine lockdown session – a bone rattling cover of the Rush classic “Working Man” which premiered earlier today with Loudwire. Watch here
The Sword bassist Bryan Richie comments,
“In the early 2000s we were given a CD by one of Kyle’s record store buddies with SLUSH scrawled across it and little did we know what a wild ride awaited us. This dude had taken his favorite Rush songs and dropped the pitch control on his record player as low as it would go – taking these classic RUSH tracks and turning them into a C standard sludge fest with the most air drumable drums!! Does it doom? Heck yes it does. Enjoy our cover of the classic RUSH track “Working Man” with a Slush’y spin.”
The Conquest of Quarantine lockdown session marks The Sword‘s first live performance together since the band went on hiatus in 2018. Rolling out a track a week over the last 3 weeks, the first track premiered with Consequence Of Sound and showed the band putting their own inimitable spin on the T-Rex classic, “Children of the Revolution“. Watch that here. The second track, a rendition of their mammoth hit “Winter’s Wolves” from their debut album “Age Of Winters”, premiered last week with Louder (Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, Prog). Watch that here.
