THE SWORD Streams Live in Studio Performance of "Winter's Wolves"

Just as crunchy as it was in 2006.

The Sword is back with the second installment of their Conquest of Quarantine live in studio performances. This time, the band brings the thunderous riffs by revisiting their 2006 track "Winter's Wolves." If you missed The Sword's previous cover of "Children of the Revolution" by T. Rex, you can check that out here.

"The original demo title of this song was 'A Druid’s Curse', and the lyrics are in fact intended to be a literal curse," said vocalist and guitarist JD Cronise. "Although it was written in the early 2000s, I find it to be even more relevant today."

"Envision large plumes of cannabis smoke or get DIY on it and create your own as you listen to this quarantine rendition of our classic track 'Winter's Wolves,'" added bassist Bryan Richie. "It was just as fun and lively as the original version we cranked out in my bedroom some 15 years ago now! Hope y'all enjoy!"

Conquest of Quarantine is a play on Conquest of Kingdoms, the new three LP collection from The Sword. The collection features 30 tracks (16 previously unreleased) including live versions “Freya,” “Iron Swan” and “Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians,” as well as cover versions of “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin, “Nasty Dogs and Funky Kings” by ZZ Top, “Forever My Queen” by Pentagram and more.

The Sword also release Chronology 2006–2018, a three CD collection featuring everything from Conquest of Kingdoms alongside The Sword’s greatest hits and fan favorites. Chronology 2006–2018 is 52 tracks (12 previously unreleased) and features expansive new liner notes with contributions from the band, plus Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Mark Morton (Lamb of God) and Neil Fallon (Clutch).
