    The Sword Slice Into Washington, DC

    Doom flooded the nation's capital last night (May 15), and its name was the Sword. After a blistering set from fan favorite Torche (and local-band-makes-loud, Stinking Lizaveta) the Rock and Roll Hotel was bursting at the seams, ready to be swallowed whole in a sea of pounding rock. And as the clock struck midnight, the Austin, TX-based doom-metal quartet stormed onto the stage to a sold out crowd. The wall of sound was thick and the riffs bludgeoning as the four long-haired rockers whipped through tracks off their 2006 debut Age of Winters, before focusing on sharp cuts like "The Black River" from their sophomore release Gods of the Earth.
