Age WInters: Using the Forge From Our Father's Metal

Music to invade or hold the line by. The vocals are a breath of fresh air from all of the "cookie monster" and electric chair death vocals that permeate so much metal nowadays. Odin and Ozzy will feel young again. The power chords and guitar work are well arranged and crafted, the drummer rips, and the each song definitely has it's own character. "Gods of the Earth" is also fantastic. On the merit of the other two, I also seized their new new release "Warp Riders," but have been wearing out the other two so much, I haven't tapped it yet.

Get it. Get it now. Get into a car with biggest V8 you can find and listen to "Ebethron."

Would you dare to meet the gaze of the Basilisk?

The Sword is the best thing to come out of music in a long time. I got Gods in 2006 and have been rocking out ever since. I finally saw them a couple of months ago in DC and they ripped up the place. Thank God my children will be listening to The Sword and not this other crap that's out now. Everyone needs to pick up this album.


As I've grown older and focus more on life and less on music it's rare that an album stops me and brings me back... Man I heard Freya on XM-40 (Liquid Metal), then hit iTunes to hear the rest. Just WOW... Most songs I listen to these days have a great riff for 4 bars that may get repeated a few times during a song, but these guys find the deepest, groovinist, metal riffs and actual play them the entire song. Killer Killer album... Breath of fresh air into music. You're lucky Austin, TX.


Formed: 2003 in Austin, TX

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Not to be confused with the Canadian heavy metal band from the late '80s simply named Sword, the Sword are a retro-metal four-piece hailing from — of all places — the singer/songwriter oasis of Austin, Texas. First conceived in 2003, the Sword really hit their stride about a year later, when founding vocalist and guitarist J.D. Cronise joined forces with guitarist Kyle Shutt, bassist Bryan Richie, and drummer Trivett Wingo, and made a much raved-about appearance at Austin's famed SXSW...
