You know what you are going to get when you buy a new album from The Sword. They have that rocking Stoner Metal sound...they know it, and they stick to it. The new album, Apocryphon, might bring more of the same, but it is what I like, so I approve.
2,000 pressed on lava orange swirl vinyl.
When I picked up a copy of Apocryphon, the store was giving out free copies of the album on cassette. I think that we are all aware that I'm not a fan of this format. Still, the 14 year old kid in me found it kind of cool. I bought most things on cassette as a kid, and a bit of nostalgia kicked in when I was holding this tape in my hand and exiting the store. Still, I'm not sure why I'm holding on to all these old tapes, and whenever I think about them, I wonder why I'm not putting them up on eBay for record money. A part of me hates to let go of that history, and while I have no way to play them, flipping through those old Iron Maiden and AC/DC tapes, reminds me of those innocent days of youth...when music was new for me, and each purchase was precious and exciting. Music started to take over my life with cassettes, so I wonder if I'll ever be able to let that piece go from my collection.
If you make something "limited" to 3,000 pieces, what is the point of numbering it?
