Lurking by the roadside
Hungry eyes and hearts of stone
Don't stray from the pathway
Until you see the light of home.
Let's keep it rockin', shall we? The Sword, in my opinion anyway, are probably the best throwback style rock band around. They shift easily from metal to more straight-forward rock to what I think of as "classic rock", all the while weaving in fun sci-fi and fantasy themed lyrics and killer vocals. Their latest album High Country is awesome, but you really can't go wrong with any of them. Like what you hear? Give their first, Age of Winters, a listen.
They also have some sweet videos, "Tres Brujas" for example.
