Lock up your daughters. The Jade Tree debut from LORDS, Swords, hits the streets today and it’s a real burner, perfect for these dog days of summer. Swords combines the “get in the van” urgency of a forgotten era of SST influenced punk rock with an awe-inspiring precision and swagger of late 80’s American thrash metal. The heir apparent to the throne of the resurgent Louisville hardcore scene, LORDS deliver their unique brand of volatile thrash in a blaze of towering riffs, near heretical rants and throttling drums.

Somehow LORDS managed to cram a punishing wall of sound into an inconceivable 13 song, 20 minute long package, which you can now claim as your very own at finer stores everywhere. It’s a torrid and unrelenting assault that will leave a trail of scorched earth in its path. The band will also start delivering the goods in person to the western half of the United States later this week, so make sure not to miss their completely dominant live show.

Lords [I]Swords[/I] Review

I admit, the rhyming of bandname and album title made me chuckle, but I was a little bit disappointed that this was not a new album by 80′s porn-icon Traci Lords, maybe one she recorded while doing kinky stuff with swords. But no matter how disappointed I was by the lack of porn, the album itself didn’t let me down in any way. Lords play a pretty insane kind of hardcore-driven rock ‘n roll, and that’s probably the best description I can come up with. It’s nothing that really sticks to the brain, but it sure as hell gets your head bobbin’.

Score: 7

Jade Tree is thrilled to announce the addition of Kentucky’s LORDS to our ever growing roster. The bands debut full length Swords, due out August 9th, combines the “get in the van” urgency of a forgotten era of SST influenced punk rock with an awe-inspiring precision and swagger of late 80’s American thrash metal. The heir apparent to the throne of the resurgent Louisville hardcore scene, Lords deliver their unique brand of volatile thrash in a blaze of towering riffs, near heretical rants and throttling drums.

Somehow LORDS cram a punishing wall of sound into an inconceivable 13 song, 20 minute long package. Swords is a torrid and unrelenting assault that will leave a trail of scorched earth in its path. The band will be on the road for much of the summer before joining Poison The Well for a full fall tour.
