Over the course of 3 mind altering, critically praised albums, THE SWORD have proved to be one of rock’s most intriguing bands. Part Sabbath, part Melvins, part Slayer, the band has already created a body of enormous riffery that has crushed ear drums the world over. On their new album "Apocryphon", the band has taken the best elements from each of their previous albums and made an album that is the most fluid and heavy of the band’s career. Hard Rock! Heavy music, re-defined for the 21st century!
