The Sword Releases Fifth Studio Album

The Sword: High CountryAustin’s The Sword has changed up its sound profile yet again on its fifth studio album, High Country, which marks a departure from 2012’s Apocryphon.

As a review in Blabbermouth puts it, “this album freaking swings as much as it strains speakers.” The review also singles out Bryan Richie’s bass work, particularly on what it deems the “Thin Lizzy-esque” “Empty Temples” and the instrumental “Suffer No Fools.”

Check out “Empty Temples”:

High Country is available on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
