The Sword Premier New Video, Hit The Road With Metallica

I first heard about The Sword because Conrad Keely from …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead championed them and did their album covers.  So generally whenever I hear about these guys I pretty much just think of them as those dudes that have Keely album covers but they’ve been so active recently that it’s probably going to be impossible for me to do that again and I’ll probably have to apologize for being so dismissive.  Now though they’ll probably end up being inextricably tied to my birthday as they start a huge media push on the 21st (aka tomorrow) including a massive tour including supporting dates for Metallica and video premier for “How Heavy This Axe” on MTV2 and discussed on the Headbangers Ball 20th anniversary show.
