New Music :: The Sword.

I have said this to a few of you before and for some reason no one believes me -- we are on the verge of the Second Coming of Metal! There are three really big post-metal bands right now that are playing serious shows and festivals and have been getting solid reviews from the indie pubs... Mastadon, Wolfmother, and the newest one - The Sword. The Sword is from Austin and their album is pretty much a continuous hour of slap you in the face, kick-ass rock. I have always been a fan of good hard rock and thank the gods of rock that it is making a comeback. Here is a sample off their album, Age of Winters... Anyone who is a GH2 fan will recognize Freya. The Sword is playing at the Fun Fun Fun Festival in Austin the weekend of Nov. 3rd along with other Stay Classy favorites - Okkervil River, Girl Talk, Battles, Explosions in the Sky, and Final Fantasy.
Check out the line up for the Fun Fun Fun Festival here.

I agree with your metal call and the growing need and desire for real hard rock. yet I still love this.
