This review is from: Apocryphon (Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
From the opening riffs of Veil of Isis to the ZZ Top cover of Cheap Sunglasses this album is spectacular. I own Gods Of The Earth and Warp Riders and this isn't the same band. This album is so above and beyond their previous work. You could almost close your eyes and think its 1975 and Ozzy can really sing. They have way more going than Sabbath though. This is such a riff heavy album and the band deliver on every song. The opener, Eyes of The Stormwitch, and Apocryphon are excellent, but really this whole album is top notch. If you question their influences, check out the Cheap Sunglasses cover. Don't let this be the only Sword album you buy, their whole catalog is worth owning, this just happens to be the best of their catalog. Love these guys. Buy this album, you won't be disappointed!!
