The Sword

Gods of the Earth

April 1, 2008 Kemado

More ambitious, more accomplished and simply bigger,  The Sword’s Gods of the Earth drops huge, mountaintop-friendly hooks, thunderous drumming and oceanic bass lines that cut through the air like a scythe, while the ominous vocals of frontman J.D. Cronise weave fantastical tales rife with myth and mythology.   Waves of powerful riffs and low-end thunder dominate songs such as the immediate “Maiden, Mother & Crone”, “Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians”, “Under the Boughs” and the paralyzing “The Black River”.
