» 5 out of 5 Evil Faces
Okay, we’ll start off as usual with some banter.
Though this time it is related to the topic at hand, a review of the CD release Age Of Winters from Austin, Texas stoner metal band The Sword. I am going to admit when I first heard the name of the band and the CD title I assumed it was going to be more icy tundra Nordic Viking Black Metal from Finland or Norway.
Wow, was I wrong!
On the complete opposite hand (as mentioned above) this is sludgy stoner doom metal from Texas. (no ice or vikings in site) It is nothing new, and has definite Black Sabbath overtones, which some people are tired of as I have gathered, while reading other reviews of this CD. I disagree however, and like this CD alot.
