The Sword - Conquest of Kingdoms (Limited Edition Splatter 3-LP )

+

[PRE-ORDER] Product expected to ship by street date, June 5, 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.

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.

Chronology: 2006-2018 (3-CD) is also available. View The Sword collection here
