Gods Of The Earth
Released on April 1, 2008
"Gods Of The Earth" instantly conveys what words can only try to describe: The Sword is not to be taken lightly. From the moment the album's lead track "The Sundering" explodes, it is immediately apparent that The Sword has upped the ante on a sound all its own. More ambitious, more accomplished and simply bigger, "Gods Of The Earth's" huge, mountaintop-friendly hooks, thunderous drumming and oceanic bass lines cut through the air like a scythe, while the ominous vocals of frontman J.D. Cronise weave fantastical tales rife with myth and mythology.
