On The Sword's new album APOCRYPHON, the band has taken the best elements from each of their previous albums and made an album that is the most fluid and heavy of the band's career.

Sword is one of my favorite bands and I really like the first three albums but Apocryphon just does not hold a candle to any of them. This album does not have the same energy as any of their previous work. It feels uninspired and like they are going through the motions.

On this 4th album from Texas retro/neuvo heavy metal band The Sword, all the hesher pieces seem in place: titles like "Eyes of the Stormwitch" and "Dying Earth," serious riffage and druggy, van ready artwork. But something about this feels like they're doing "heavy metal," rather than really feeling it. It's a little too slick and formulaic, like Black Album-era Metallica played by a cover band. They have balls, but they're not even close to the wall. Baroness, High on Fire, Isis and Mastodon all do a better job at contemporary metal.
