The mysterious cloaked figures of Magic Sword—who are, in reality, three dudes from Boise—play retro-futuristic synth-rock that’s like a whirling tornado of John Carpenter, Judas Priest, Daft Punk, and gamer influences. The anonymous musicians go by the aliases the Seer, the Weaver, and the Keeper. They speak in riddles and have sworn to defeat somebody known as “the immortal Dark One.” Laser eyeballs glow behind their weird masks; they kind of look like Power Rangers having a spa day.
