Die By The Sword

from POP ZEUS!:

So whilst home inn for the holidays, I got a chance to play the video game "", my nephew got it for christmas. What can I say besides this is the greatest video game I have ever played for two days and then got completely sick of. It was a good run though. But a funny thing happened while wailing on the red and green buttons, I discovered a song, and a band, that actually rocked!

Now I know that we've all read how video games are changing the face of the music industry, blah blah. But the fact is its rare that I've heard a song outside of that was new to me and I wanted to hear again. Usually these games are chock full of flavor of the month, Debbie Gibson-sounding emo groups.

But somewhere in the middle levels of Guitar Hero I got to play "Freya" by The Sword, and I was enthralled. Here was some serious Sabbath-esque riffing on top with little or no modern production tricks that seem to plague all heavy metal songs these days. No, "Freya" brings metal back to its roots. Plus it was easier to play on Guitar Hero than "Bark at the Moon". Jesus that song was hard.

    The Sword is a band I've recently (last month or two) learned about, and they're fantastic. A great mix of doom, sludge, and stoner metal. Very strong stuff. I'm surprised to hear it's on a game, as I don't THINK it's too widely known. Very cool, though. Reminds me of Sabbath, Acid Bath, and Electric Wizard, all thrown together (more the former two).
