Song of the Day: The Sword – “Freya”



Christopher Tahy Recalls: Anybody who got caught up in the plastic instrument craze should have memories of The Sword’s “Freya” — at least I do. First discovered by me as a part of Guitar Hero 2‘s set list, the song had a allure that I hardly encountered at the time. Being heavily influenced by artists such as Black Sabbath or stoner sludge titans Sleep, yhe chug and repetition of the guitars was punishing and hypnotic at the same time. With their 2012 release Apocryphon failing to impress me, we’ll see what The Sword has in store for their new release High Country. You can expect a review of High Country from me sometime this week.
