+

[PRE-ORDER] Product expected to ship by street date, June 19, 2020. Over their 17-year career, The Sword have proven themselves to be one of the most prolific and revered bands in metal — not only by fans, but also by the media and their peers. Now, with the double release of Conquest of Kingdoms and Chronology 2006–2018, The Sword have complied an extensive and essential collection that celebrates their legacy and impressive back catalog.

Chronology 2006-2018 is a three-disc compendium of The Swords greatest hits, fan favorites and rarities. Culling the retro-metal four-piece's complete studio recordings, the set comprises 52 tracks (12 previously-unreleased), including the studio recordings of “Freya,” “Iron Swan,” “Cloak of Feathers,” and “Deadly Nightshade.” Plus a career-spanning assemblage of B-sides, covers, live performances and more. Featuring expansive new liner notes with contributions from the band, plus Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Mark Morton (Lamb of God) and Neil Fallon (Clutch).

Conquest of Kingdoms, an explosive three-disc vinyl collection of rarities and oddities, offers 30 tracks (16 previously unreleased) and is housed in a triple-gatefold package, including B-sides, oddities and live recordings of fan favorites like “Freya,” “Iron Swan” and “Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians,” as well as cover versions of “Immigrant Song” (Led Zeppelin), “Nasty Dogs and Funky Kings” (ZZ Top), “She” (KISS), “Forever My Queen” (Pentagram) and more. This limited edition splatter vinyl version (1,000 copies worldwide) is available exclusively via the Craft Recordings store, TheSwordOfficial.com and via independent retailers, while stocks last.

The limited edition 3-piece 12"x12" poster set is by Conquest of Kingdoms cover artist, Weirdbeard72. Each poster is produced as a 2-color silkscreen on 100# French Paper. Hand numbered edition (100 total) and signed by the cover artist.
