The Sword/Big Business/O' Brother 

When: Sun., March 2, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $18
Resurrecting classic metal, the Sword pays tribute to the ’70s heavy metal style while giving it a modern update. Super chunky guitar riffs and slower paced songs mixed with carefully thought out lyrics bring back the epic craft of what once was heavy metal songwriting. As opposed to other metal bands that get their kicks from high octane blast beats and death growling vocals, these guys play it cool by incorporating musicality while still seriously rocking out. In "Cloak of Feathers" from Apocryphon, their latest release, the guys explode with searing guitar riffs that drop out to leave room for vocals. It's an epic style of playing that definitely picks up on what was so awesome about Sabbath and Zeppelin but gives it a great modern take. (Stoops)
