Modern stoner-thrash wildmen the Sword are returning on October 22 with their fourth album, Apocryphon released on CD, deluxe CD digipak, picture disc vinyl, "lava orange" colored vinyl, cassette(!) and, sure, digital for all the kids. They told SPIN that they had been "working 12-hour days, six days a week" on this huge-sounding monsterwork, and the title track is a great example of their handiwork: Paranoid-era Sabbath churn with just the slightest wiggle of space-prog synths. Check out the technical ecstasy via this trippy lyric video, and watch the words "SET ADRIFT IN THE MULTIVERSE" float around.
