Neumos and KISW Present:
The Sword with Gypsyhawk + American Sharks
Saturday Dec 8th, 2012
Less than a year after their formation, THE SWORD became known as “Austin’s most dangerous band”. Their SXSW shows even proved to be some of their most brutal. If their reputation continues on the same path, THE SWORD may simply evolve into meaning a pure destruction and then become the symbol of force, possibly even a devilish force. Exhilarating songs such as the powerfully monolithic “Celestial Crown”, the heavy-handed “Freya”, the graceful then rampaging “Iron Swan”, “March of the Lor” with it’s gripping, towering build and the catchy, colossal closer “Ebethron” instantly convey what words can only try to describe: THE SWORD is not to be taken lightly.
It’s up for debate, but it’s hard to disagree with the claim that THE SWORD is one of heavy music’s most electrifying new bands. THE SWORD is a colossal, high-energy powerhouse that is the soul of a warrior. Inspired by such legendary names as SLEEP, SLAYER and THE MELVINS, the Austin four-piece destroys anything that opposes the will of its user and sacrifices all the impulses that arise from the instinct of self-preservation.
