Having sold more than 200,000 units in the
U.S. alone, THE SWORD is one of the major forces in heavy music today. Since its
birth in the early 2000s, the Heavy Doom outfit from Austin, Texas has been
releasing brilliant and epic albums, presenting countless fans with hymns and
soon to be classics like "Freya" or "How Heavy this Axe". Handpicked by Lars
Ulrich, THE SWORD supported METALLICA on their "Death Magnetic" tour, playing
more than 60 shows with the legendary Bay Area Thrashers.
