The Sword, 'Gods of the Earth' (Kemado)

7
Gods of the Earth
Critical Mass
Label: Kemado

by J Niimi

This Austin, Texas band's riffs are so heavy they should be weighed periodically on truck scales, so that they don't violate any interstate cartage laws when the Sword goes on tour. How scary/ridiculous the lyrics are is a matter of personal taste (or lack thereof), but it'd help if the production were more Scandinavian and less like, well, the Rocket from the Crypt rip-off band that singer/guitarist J.D. Cronise was in before he devoted his life to Paranoid. It's only their second album, so maybe their ears just aren't ruined enough yet.
