THE SWORD (US)
Sunday 07.07.13 - 14:30 - Odeon
With muscular riffs and a tight rhythm section, The Sword have become one of the most consistent heavy metal bands these days.
Fans of both sludge and stoner metal bands of recent times and worshippers of Black Sabbath are left in good hands with The Sword. These tough guys from Austin, Texas have a tight grip on the virtues of classic hard rock.
On their latest record Apocryphon, the main theme is Christianity’s banned texts of unholy wisdom. These boys have only one thing they hold sacred: The guitar riff in all its might and glory.
Label: Napalm / Target
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
