Listen to The Sword’s sludge-filled cover of Rush classic Working Man

From Loudersound.

Texan outfit The Sword get together remotely once again for their Conquest Of Quarantine sessions – this time to record their take on Rush’s 1974 track Working Man.

The Sword have released the latest instalment in their Conquest Of Quarantine sessions – and this time they’ve given their unique spin on classic Rush track Working Man.

The Texas outfit have been recording material to keep themselves busy under lockdown, with their jam of Winter’s Wolves released last week, which followed their cover of T. Rex‘s Children Of The Revolution which arrived last month.

But now they’ve turned their attention to the 1974 Rush track, which closed out the Canadian trio’s debut album.

The Sword bassist Bryan Richie explains: “In the early 2000s we were given a CD by one of guitarist Kyle Shutt’s record store buddies with, ‘Slush’ scrawled across it – and little did we know what a wild ride awaited us.

“This dude had taken his favourite Rush songs and dropped the pitch control on his record player as low as it would go – taking these classic Rush tracks and turning them into a C-standard sludge fest with the most air drumable drums!

“Does it doom? Heck, yes it does. Enjoy our cover of the classic Rush track Working Man with a Slush’y spin.”

As for the sessions, Richie adds: “It was a lot of fun getting together with Kyle and drummer Jimmy Vela to record these tracks, and thanks to the miracles of modern technology, we were able to lay down a wicked session with vocalist and guitarist John D. Cronise all the way from North Carolina.
