Customer Reviews

Whatever

So sick of people using the term 'go mainstream' when a band's sound changes some. Just LISTEN to the song. It doesn't sound exactly like Age of Winters and Gods of the Earth but it is OBVIOUSLY The Sword. JD is singing about confronting magical witches while high... Frankly if the new album had the same sound it may have been a bit much. The other two albums kind of flow into each other anyway. I can not wait for the full album, all true fans throw up the horns for me!

Nothing special.

First thing that came to my mind was, considering their former sound, JD's voice was WAY too out front. Other thoughts for me would be that the drums lacked the thudding balls that they used to have and the production just screamed to me that they were trying to take their sound and get as mainstream as possible. I'd have liked to seem them go the route that Electric Wizard took on "Witchcraft Today"...but whatever. Its their sound and its all about personal taste anyhow...If they achieved what they wanted then hell yes, good for them! ;)

Literally labeled by itunes as "Rock" ...which is really accurate. I always considered these guys a gateway Doom band but if this track is any indication they have chosen a greener pasture for sure. I will withhold final judgement until i can dig on the WHOLE album but, as everyone is, i'm entitled to my opinion and my opinion of this single isn't too great. :(

confused

so, yes, I'm very confused. Having the past two Sword albums-thick, heavy riffing, monster hooks, low-down sound of doom--I'm wondering what's goin' on. Is this a joke? Oh, Mighty Sword as Jesters!? Ha, an excellent jest. Deception in battle, slay your enemy. Appear weak, lure them in, and then suddenly overcome them with brute and savage force! So, yes, perhaps this is their plan, to which I respond, "Well played!"

If not, if this is it--bright, squelching, transistor radio guitar sound (where, alas, are the tuned down guitars and low down tubes of hell?), and annoying clap your hands, 1970's sunshine disco ball, lenny-kravitz, hipster, happy rhythm...if then, what?? I shudder to think.

The "Corvax Corvidea' song is new, real SWORD of old. Perhaps this is a 'rough, club mix' or something. They still have to get those overpowering vocals down and add the doom.

It's not about the band not being able to change. If this is the new direction, so be it. We have the first two albums. That's enough. Hell robert Johnson gave us 28 songs. 'nuff said.

BUT, whether they did this to sell more albums and appeal to the masses?? I would hope they have the balls and integrity (and the fan base) to resist that. Someone said they r going the sci-fi route? Huh? This song is about three witches. (Shakespeare, et al.) Nothing wrong with a catalog of forest, myth, ravens, crows, magic, etc.
In the end, these are just my thoughts, y'all have yours, THE SWORD certainly is doin' its thing. Peace.

Biography

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, named simply 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-over appearance at Austin's famed SXSW...
