The Sword, Royal Thunder 

When: Fri., Nov. 27, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $17-$19
If you’ve forgotten about The Sword, the Austin band was a pivotal player at the heavy metal--indie rock crossroads about a decade ago, when the crew offered a sun-baked and surly answer to Canada’s Black Mountain. Stiff to a fault then, The Sword has grown less mighty over time; on the new High Country, the band seems content to retread classic rock tropes by putting the “thin” in Thin Lizzy and adding an unexpected “Z” to ZZ Top. The riffs are reverent. The singing is competent. The drums are agile. The moment is passed. —Grayson Haver Currin
