early mornings, I think; that sounds like a song off the very first Soul
Asylum record and that's not a bad thing. LORDS new record, "Swords" is
good. I mean very good. It's chaotic, angry and musically played with an
intensity that's been sadly missing from what is wrongfully labeled PUNK.
Something in the water in Louisville, KY has these guys pissed off and
they're letting us know it with their short and sweet blasts of sonic angst.
The songs are just long enough for singer, Chris Owens to let the words rip
out his throat. While the other two members of this punk/hardcore/metal
amalgamation - drummer, Stan Doll and bassist, Tony Ballen - make sure that
every note and beat of every song on this powerful record penetrates your
very flesh. Who needs overpriced espresso when you can start your day with
LORDS, "Swords". Crank it up and drink it up!
