Listening Post

The Sword come to us from Austin, Texas and they do heavy metal the old-fashioned way -- albeit with trucker-hatted scruffy hair and horn-rimmed glasses that make you immediately wonder if they're serious or are just doing an ironic hipster homage.

Either way, the music's pretty good -- and no one can deny that it's heavy as hell.

Here's The Veil of Isis.

I love these guys. I especially love that this is a modern metal band whose vocalist actually sings (relative term, I know, but still...) instead of sounding like he's on the shitter straining against the holy bonds of physiology to plop out a monster cinderblock.
