Imagine that Black Sabbath meets Trouble. They take a nostalgic ride in their meticulously restored 1977 Ford Mustang Cobra II. On the way they pick up some guys from Sleep. They listen to doom metal and some stoner rock all the way to their destination. Once they arrive, they open a big closet with a huge "The 70's" sticker on its doors. There's a lot of stuff on the shelves. They rummage around and take the heaviness of Black Sabbath. Just below is the shelf labeled "tempos." After a moment's consideration they decide to take just a little bit more than doom would normally require. They're a bunch of chilled out dudes, so they take a ton of that cool, relaxed atmosphere that oozes tranquility, amusement and weed. Someone takes a pinch of stoner rock, just enough to hint at the taste of it. Once the ingredients are put in a crucible, they're ready to be ground into a dish called Warp Riders.

Rating: 9 At least from what I've seen on here, their debut seems to be held in better regards than this, but I disagree with that statement. Warp Riders was more cohesive, and yet consistently higher quality than Age of Winters ever was, with a folds-better production job on top of it. While that album DID have my all-time favorite Sword track on it (Freya), Warp Riders takes the cake as best Sword album, period.
