They have a song in Guitar Hero II, I think it reminded me of QOTSA.

Sweet, i've been in need of some new Sword material.

Sea of Spears is great, but the Zep cover (like most Zep covers) leaves me wanting the original.

Mixing has been completed on the new album, entitled _Gods of the Earth_. U.S release is currently scheduled for March 18. A 10-inch vinyl E.P. featuring the first single, "Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians", is currently planned. We will be touring the U.S. in the spring.

My friend brought this over the other day saying I would like it. He put it on and I asked him if he'd ever heard of Orange Goblin? I played him a song that was identical to the one he was playing from The Sword. It was funny. So I told him I liked the album the first time I bought it 12 years ago or so.

You could make the same argument and trace it all back to Sabbath if you like. It still doesn't change the fact that this is some good riffage. I'll be looking forward to the new album.

This album is pretty damn good. Basically the same as Age of Winters, but in a good way.

I'm digging this a lot too. I just got it last night but i've listened to it three times. A little more rockin then age of winters... More straight ahead riffage. The vocals are pretty low in the mix though, but the vocals were never the appeal for them :)

I was there too man, it was pretty kickass. I was extremely drunk. If you saw the guy in the black Cedric Benson UT jersey in the pit, that was my brother. :haha:
