The Sword's 2008 LP "Gods of the Earth" attacks with a fury more akin to a hammer than its namesake. Doom in tone but faster and thrashier, The Sword abuses more than uses thier weapons of sound. From this criterion, the MVP is easily the percussionist Trivett Wingo. His execution is downright animalistic: drums are beaten, cymbals are crashed, and the pounding is relentless, noizy, and loud. For a stripped down, simple, and tolling metallic creation that is "Gods of the Earth" it is perhaps the only place where his pitch can survive. All put together though, The Sword's "Gods of the Earth" is a blunt force traumatic experience of non-embellished, old school, and sleazy heavy metal; a most enjoyable album indeed.

The Sword is an American heavy metal band from Austin, Texas. Formed in 2003, the band is currently composed of vocalist and guitarist John D. Cronise, guitarist Kyle Shutt, bassist Bryan Richie and drummer Santiago "Jimmy" Vela III. Originally signed to Kemado Records, the group released its debut album Age of Winters in 2006, the material for which had been largely written by Cronise (who also produced the album) prior to the band's formation.

This is an alright album by The Sword. It isn't anything spectacular or stunning, but it's still a good album worth listening to at least once.

The Sword may be the reluctant avatars of metal's recent indie acceptance, but it's unclear what landed them in that position. Nothing about the High on Fire-ripping or Black Sabbath sludge of the Austin quartet's debut album Age of Winters set it apart from the pack of bands doing the same thing in 2006 (ok, maybe those supremely tough dueling guitars, but that's hardly enough, right?). And, for that matter, none of its tracks struck any eads poses (we're looking at you, Goblin Cock)

Comes in an embossed gatefold and includes a download card for mp3's of the album. The B-side has an infinite loop in the run-out section, giving a psychodelic noise. Unknown amount pressed on black vinyl. Pressing plant and mastering facility from matrix. Matrix, Runout (Side A): KEM-072 A S-64696 GOLDEN. Matrix, Runout (Side B): KEM-072 B S-64697 JJ GOLDEN.

Off topic but, as a fellow (unfortunate) inhabitant of the south, I think we should start a petition to get bands to come down here. The Sword is coming through Atlanta and then Texas actually in October I believe. Monticello August 15th 2008. CushMG15 November 10th 2008.

The Sword manages to give its bashers and haters with their latest album pretty much what they've expected, yet it is not too hopeless. If you had to describe Gods of the Earth with a single phrase, it'd be standard, plodding but groovy stoner rock. So yeah, it's 2008 believe it or not, and it has happened. Gods of the Earth is what it's called and this is going to be released coming April. On the positive side, this isn't 'more of the same' because they've genuinely evolved a bit. For starters, there's lesser slow/stoner-metal nods and more NWOBHM/80s metal, perceptibly finer chops, more harmonized leads and the increased and improved usage of euro sounding scales.
