    Refreshing Metal
    Serious riffage without the annoyingly growling lyrics. Take it from a metal fan of two decades and get ahold of this one.

    It was not an album, it is bursting at the seems with large, super heavy, rumbling, meat, crushing, Sabbath-inspired federal board smoking riffs since the Mastodon “Leviathan” was released in August 2004 . Frontman JD Cronise sings melodic (almost in an Ozzy Osbourne-esque sound), so he sometimes takes this Austin-based band of intensity. But fortunately, the stamp of the guitar pack is definitely powerful, visceral, and large enough for the vocals. The riffs Kaskade, Groove, and storm like tumbling logs, and the rhythms crunch, crash, and flat, like a lot of falling stones and steel rods. The album begins with a short instrumental ( “Celestial Crown”), beating, lumbering riffs. The song is mid-tempo, but some songs, like “Freya” and “The Horned Goddess,” are blistering, with fast, churning guitars (plus, this route also has a mini-guitar solo.) Track six, “Iron Swan” begins with soft strumming and rattling drums, before the prices in a fast, driving lead guitar and finally segueing into crisp, punching riffs. But this CD at the best way is probably the most epic, very Mastodon-esque instrumental “March of the Lor.” After the CD Booklet, the instrumental is divided into eight “movements” (parts). Even if one or two songs to get kind of repetitive, it only makes sense that the guitarist (Kyle and shutter the above frontman JD Cronise) for recycling would have a few riffs, when the album is full of them. All in all, “Age Of Winters” is simply the best Doom Metal CD last year and half, and it is absolutely necessary for everyone who likes the genre, as well as fans of Black Sabbath, High On Fire, and Mastodon.

    Near Perfect Debut
    Sabbath doom riffs, vocals that I can hear and interpret (so much of today’s metal sounds like Satan himself does the vocal track), and excellent production make this an excellent…

    I tend to a selective audience, and I do not always like a band until I've heard it a few times. (Opeth and Coheed & Cambria come to mind.) But from the instant I have the sword with the latest, I was addicted. The riffs, my God, the riffs! These guys come out of the gate swinging their vorpal blades tough. And the age WINTERS combines great songs (not a weak throw in), with clear, powerful production.
      additional loans for the Scandinavian myth-inspired lyrics and the cover art nouveau design. I recommend this album. Get, as they are absolutely not sorry.

    Killer!
    This album is Rad! This album amps me up every time I listen to it. The guitar riffs are heavy and the overall sound is raw!

    I love heavy music, but if you hear something that may have some strikes and then the singer starts screaming his courage, it is a completely off. Whatever happens, good, hard, cut metal riffs and vocals. Finally a band that it actually is. I heard the sword a few months on a Comcast Music Channel and immediately went and bought the CD. It is stuck in my CD player again and again. Last night, I am 3 hours to see them live and it was worth every mile. A lot of people complain about the vocals on this album, but fot me it was one of the outlets. I'd love to cram the MIC cut some of these idiots who have nothing but cry through all the songs. For me, very much away from the music. Heres a front man dosnt who are trying to overshadow the instruments with an irritating voice. Sure, they sound like Sabbath, but I'm in my 20s and, thank God, someone from my generation wants to see some Sabbath-metal type to modern times. Remember, this band, who only 2 years old and this is their first album, its not enough, so that for all of you to leave reviews complanining on the recording and sound quality, maybe you should keep with bands, which for a while. Support the sword and the metal back to where it should be.

    First-rate heavy metal!
    If you like thick, deliberate, catchy riffs, a leader singer that actually “sings” (instead of grumbling), and an unmistakable Sabbath influence, this is the album you’ve been…

    The Sword – Black Sabbath For A New Generation
    The Sword are a relatively new band from Austin Texas who would really love to be the second coming of Black Sabbath.

    “A warrior’s hand and a wizard’s mind to wield…”
    The Sword is the anomaly you’ve been waiting for: a metal album by nerds who rock huge. Many would-be lovers of heavy metal are put off by the reigning machismo and…

    Wowzers
    I dont remember why I bought this cd. I think I saw it in Revolver magazine as one of the best cds of the year and had it stuck in my mind for awhile.

    Good music; Hard to listen to once you see what the band looks like.
    Very easy to get into. The riffs flow and instrumentals are great. Personally, I can’t handle the fact the band looks like the staff at my local starbucks….
