The Sword

Finally, a band that plays the kind of music I want to hear! The Sword sing about Vikings, battles and Robert E. Howard influences abound! They're not some lame Nu metal, this is classic 70's style Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, Led Zeppelin influenced rock!

With song titles like Freya, Winter's Wolves, The Frost-Giant's Daughter, How Heavy This Axe, Maiden, Mother & Crone, and The Black River. They definitely wear their literary influences on their sleeves!

Check out the video for Freya!
