The Billboard
The Sword are a four-piece band hailing from Austin, TX. First conceived in 2003, The Sword hit their stride about a year later, when founding vocalist and guitarist J.D. Cronise joined forces with guitarist Kyle Shutt, bassist Bryan Richie, and drummer Trivett Wingo, and made a much raved-over appearance at Austin's famed SXSW festival. National touring stints with everyone from Clutch to ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead followed, and by mid-2005 The Sword had been picked up by Brooklyn, New York-based indie label Kemado Records, with their much-anticipated debut album, Age of Winters, appearing early the next year.

Before completing their second album, they contributed two songs (one original and one Led Zeppelin cover) to a split 12" EP with Swedish heavy rockers Witchcraft in November 2007. Gods of the Earth arrived in spring 2008. Changing their muse from fantasy to science fiction, The Sword released Warp Riders in 2010, a concept album featuring an original narrative written by the band. The band supported Warp Riders with world tours which saw them supporting Metallica in the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia, and more recently, Kyuss Lives! on a full North American tour.

In 2011, Trivett left the band and was replaced by Santiago "Jimmy" Vela III.
