No overly wanky guitar solos, no constant double bass, no stupid cookie monster growling vocals. Just pure, raw, old-school heavy metal. The Sword is what metal is all about and are the best modern metal band within a decade.
Age of Winters - 2006
Gods of the Earth - 2008
All their songs are available on their myspace or youtube pages, so just type in The Sword to hear them all.(I'm not allowed to post links).
I will never forgive myself for missing them at the Metallica concert back in January
