Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Sword - Age Of Winters Age Of Winters
Heavy Metal Used - LP KEM 029 Kemado
2006 Gatefold Original With Insert. Appears Unplayed. Sharpie Line Through Barcode (Promo Copy). “Glorifying Heavy Metal's Prototypical Qualities Is Exactly What The Sword Is All About, And Their 2006 Debut, Age Of Winters, Sees Them Joining California's High On Fire, Sweden's Witchcraft, And Australia's Wolfmother (To Name But A Few) At The Forefront Of What's Gradually Become Known In The Mid-'00s As The "Heritage" Or "Retro-Metal" Movement. No, Not Stoner Rock — That's Sooo Ten Years Earlier! The Only Thing The Sword And Their Ilk Have In Common With Most '90s Stoner Rockers Is Recognizing That All Heavy Metal Empires Are Sprung From The Black Sabbath Cornerstone, And The Token Signs Can Be Readily Heard In These Songs' Ominous Doom Chords, Pummeling, Down-Picked Staccato Riff-Runs, Lyrics About Fantasy And Legend, And, Finally, Those Borderline-Inadequate, Zombie Vocals First Made Acceptable By Ozzy Himself. The Sword's Singer, JD Cronise, Is Certainly Guilty Of The Latter, But Then That Only Helps To Focus One's Attention Upon The Album's Main Attraction: Its Megalithic Guitar Work. For The Record, The Sword Spins The Evolutionary Clock As Far Forward As '80s Thrash, On Occasion, Resulting In Colossal, Galloping Onslaughts Such As "Winter's Wolves" (Complete With Howling Wolves, Naturally) And "Iron Swan" (Prefaced By Delicate Melodies Of A Medieval Feel). Yes, You'll Probably Have To Be A Certified, Stainless Steel Metalhead To Really Appreciate The Skyscraping Riff Constructions Of "March Of The Lor" (An Instrumental In Eight Movements!), But The Vast Majority Of What's On-Hand Proves Remarkably Well-Balanced And Almost Suspiciously Immediate To The Ears. As Such, Age Of Winters Provides Neophyte Listeners With As Good An Entryway As Any Into The "Retro-Metal" Universe, While Also Managing To Sound Refreshing Even To Calloused Heavy Metal Ears — This Is No Small Achievement.” - Eduardo Rivadavia, All Music Guide... more details
 
Sword - Apocryphon Apocryphon
Heavy Metal New - LP 7930183356 Razor & Tie
Sealed 2012 Silver Foil Embossed Gatefold Original. “After Conquering The Realms Of Fantasy And Science Fiction, Classic Metal Revivalists The Sword Head Into A More Metaphysical Space On Their Fourth Album, Apocryphon. Though They Return To The Looser, More Groove-Heavy Sound Of Their Earlier Work, The Spacy Influence Of Warp Riders Can Still Be Felt Here And There, With Songs Like "Execrator" Bringing Occasional Flourishes Of Psychedelic, Effects-Drenched Guitar Work. All Over The Album It Feels As Though The Sword Are Bringing Together Everything They've Learned From Their Other Records, And With Its Combination Of Ambition, Heaviness, And Swagger, Titular Album-Closer "Apocryphon" Feels Like A One-Song "Best-Of", Bringing Everything The Band Has Done Before It Together Into A Singular Epic Metal Journey.” – Gregory Heaney, AMG... more details
