Full Album Streams: Apocryphon by The Sword
Posted by RiffRaff
To say that I’m jazzed up about the new Sword album is quite the understatement. Since their debut record, Age of Winters, I have been totally enthralled by their hard-hitting blend of doom metal and hard rock. With each release since their debut they just became tighter and tighter culminating with 2010′s sci-fi epic Warp Riders. With that album we heard The Sword take a turn for more hard rock, bluesy sounding music with hints of doom metal sprinkled in and on their new release Apocryphon they ventured into that sound even more. After one playthrough I can say that I am wholly satisfied with the album and it will be getting lots of spins in the near and far future. Such great grooves, thick riffs, catchy songs, and all other great things you say about music you enjoy. When the honeymoon phase runs out and I can give a serious review on the record without fanboying all over it I’ll have one posted up, but until then give it a listen for yourself and let us know what you think.

P.S. In order to listen to the stream you have to solve a ‘puzzle’ which is easily cracked with a little trial and error. If you are feeling lazy, I took a screenshot of the completed ‘puzzle’ so you can click here for the solution and get right to listening.
