The Sword are back in the studio!

Having spent much of 2009 supporting Metallica on their World Magnetic Tour, and a number of 2008 shows no less, sharing the stage/drums with Lars Ulrich; The Sword are back in the Studio recording their Third LP on Kemado Records. Speaking to fans about the recording of the album, The Sword’s Trivett Wingo had the following to say…

“Sword fans everywhere, since you wouldn’t stop asking for a new album, we figured we’d write some songs and give you what you deserve. Last week we started recording our as yet untitled third full length with producer and engineer Matt Bayles here in Austin. We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves and of course you’ll be the judge, but let’s say we have a strong intuition that this will be our best release to date.”

Wingo went on to elaborate, “We’ve never attempted something quite on this scale as far as song-writing and sheer sonic magnificence go and we’re a little worried it might be TOO AWESOME for you to handle. While you’re waiting for this baby to drop, you can check out our show at Stubb’s on March 16th with Year Long Disaster and some old school metal band called Motörhead…”

Before forging the blade, the swordsmiths underwent fasting and ritual purification. They then worked at their anvils in white clothes, like the robes of the priests. Their efforts were well rewarded. The final result was a blade of unparalleled craftsmanship. Its edge is made of metal so hard that it holds razor sharpness even after repeated use in battle.

The Sword is an American heavy metal rock n’ roll band that was formed in Austin, Texas in 2003 and has existed in its current form since early 2004. Since then they have recorded and released two full-length albums on Kemado Records. Their third album for Kemado will be released later this year.
