"There's a lot more in the realm of diversity on Gods of the Earth, while the band's core sound remains intact. Sure, the overall production is a bit crisper and the guitars indulge in some Zakk Wylde style pinch harmonics, but this is very clearly the same band that recorded Age of Winters, just with a bit more ammo in their arsenal. This a better written and a better executed album than the debut. I can see this album winning over some new fans, including those who were skeptical about the band after their first release."

"This album feels more like a real band and not a band trying to sound like everyone else. Right away this album strays from the "old" formula whist keeping the "Sabbathy" vibe. There is some major High on Fire worship going on with this album."

"Gods of the Earth is definitely old school metal but not the old school metal you’ve grown accustomed to. This is Geezer Butler, circa 1974, downing a swig of Jack and spraying it all over your precious Wolfmother. This is Leslie West shaking his head at Witchcraft’s sorry riffs then breaking into a 30 minute intro to “Mississippi Queen”. This is old school metal. Age of Winters gave us a taste of what this band is all about. They definitely channel some ghosts of metal’s past but one shouldn’t judge on first impressions alone. Now, having heard Gods of the Earth in its entirety (more than a few times), it’s safe to say that The Sword is the definitive choice for those left unsatisfied by Heaven and Hell’s recent tour. The Sword have proven themselves the children of metal’s forefathers. With Gods of the Earth they not only solidify their inheritor status but they do so with even more conviction, making this album fit comfortably amongst their predecessors’ offerings."

The Sword
Age of Winters (CD)

Label: Kemado   Origin: USA
We’re talking about massive riffs and killer grooves. These nine songs are monstrously heavy. Hell, one song has wolves howling in it. Wolves don’t howl for anyone, you know. The Sword doesn’t sacrifice groove for the sake of heaviness. It’s like the band was formed by four guys who dug BTO and Mountain as much as they did Iron Maiden and Metallica. For fans of High on Fire, Dozer, Tummler, and Mastodon.

The Sword
Warp Riders (CD)

Label: Kemado   Origin: USA
The Sword slaps us rather hard in the nuts with their third album, Warp Riders. Given their first two albums were hard and heavy, Warp Riders is no different. Without straying too far from the heavy metal, they add a bit of hard rock. The end result is a finely made album, a step in the right direction and shows that the band isn’t afraid to try something new while staying true to their roots.
