The Sword


“Mist & Shadow” (video) Before the Sword take you on a full tour of their High Country, the stoney metal crew are letting you take a taste of the darkness via a stream of the set’s “Mist & Shadow.” Full of life questions and blazing riffs, you can check out the track in an online stream.

While mixing balmy Southern Rock rhythms with Sabbath-styled licks, the track has the outfit analyzing all-things insidious (“Why do people wonder if there is evil in the world?”). While pondering what lurks in the shadows, the Sword are pretty up front with their unrelenting arrangement.

The track has been fit with a mix of hazy and distorted scenes from a desert, and you can check it all out down below.

As previously reported, High Country touches down August 21 through Razor & Tie.
