What is with with those metal guys that they sing about swarthy guys with big weapons and pissed off gods? The Sword from Austin, Texas, conjure up a dark world on their new album Gods of the Earth and yes, they bring you damsels in distress, journeys through wasteland, blood and death. Bored kids in the suburbs will love them, their parents will have serious talks about what junior is into these days.
The Sword can obviously play and if you can get past their childish lyrics, you have an album that makes a nice addition to your "turn it up and bang your head" collection.
