Somewhere in time, amidst the bitter and unmerciful Bronze Age…a mere man crafted a weapon that could be plunged into the hearts of its enemies. ¬†The sword was born. ¬†Deadlier than a dagger¬†and¬†swifter than a warhammer,¬†the sword still serves as a symbol¬†for¬†power,¬†for¬†loyalty, for¬†prowess, and for the mammoth amp-destroying¬†metal.

The Austin hard rock heroes are back with album number five, and it’s an even tighter endeavor bursting at the seams with riffs, spliffs and MF-ing attitude.

Per usual for The Sword, many variants already exist out there. ¬†UK fans, there is a sick splatter variant from Napalm Records limited to 300 that you can purchase HERE. ¬†A variant from Razor and Tie, limited to 500, is already sold out. ¬†The ‘Earth & Sky’ variant can be purchased from The Sword’s online store after the ‘buy’ link. ¬†If you come across any more variants, feel free to post the links.

Praise Iommi, and long live the riff.
