Ready to Rock? The Savage Guitar Sound of THE SWORD!

TOMORROW'S
INDIE-METAL NEW RELEASE:
GET READY TO RIDE THE LIGHTNING

Insanely Loud return to Guitar from THE SWORD


One of the most fun releases so far this year is born tomorrow (April 1). Shock and Surprise - it's a metal album!

Austin's The Sword
(Kemado Records) is one of the hardest rockin' bands going and the young four-piece has proven itself to be most skilled. Playing screaming guitar, powerful bass and pounding drums - the band finds some way to avoid the foolish grunting that characterizes "modern" metal. The Sword is a guitar cult and a refreshing throwback...

The Record: "GODS OF THE EARTH"
(the band's second full-length album) is a truly refreshing homage - a guitar metal church, if you will, to the accomplishment's to bands like (the original) Black Sabbath and great yester-year records like Metallica's 1984 release: Ride the Lightning. Get out your air guitars!
