Favorite Music of '08: The Sword

So far we've had some banjo-driven indie-pop, some high energy Aussie stuff, and some southwest/gypsy/flamenco rock action. Time to appease the metalheads out there. Yes the album cover is cartoonish. The Sword doth rock mightily though. Anyway, I stumbled upon The Sword earlier this year when some friends wanted to go see the band that was opening up for them. I don't even remember who the opener was, but I left that show a fan of The Sword.

 

Here's the impossibly long titled "Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians" by THE SWORD from the album Gods of the Earth:
