Metal Blade signs Lightning Swords of Death

Official press release: Metal Blade Records is proud to announce inking a deal with LA underground black metal act, Lightning Swords Of Death. The band is seven years of the making and has been praised by the likes of Decibel, SOD Magazine, PIT Magazine and Metal Maniacs for their unrelenting and irrefutably vicious sound. Those who were privy to the band's 2007 release, The Golden Plague, are already aware of the band's prowess. Their second release took the form of a split CD with comrades Valdur, which was only available for a limited time at performances during the country wide 2008 Blodhevn tour. Metal Maniacs called LSOD's part a "heavy, bestial and brutal assault bringing to mind a young and hungry Thornspawn." The split continues to infect all who experience its unyielding expression of true chaos, but it's only a precursor of the grand and terrible horror that is looming in the future like a headsman's shadow. Vocalist Farron divulges: "Metal Blade has made a pact with the Devil. His knights, Lightning Swords of Death shall go forth to wreak torment upon man and all his works for conquer and the glory of Hell on Earth. We rejoice in this union, together we shall stack the souls of the weak and fill our chalice with the blood of martyrs." Lightning Swords of Death tour dates: 8/8 Las Vegas, NV @ Yayos 8/9 Sacramento, CA @ Java Lounge 8/11 Salt Lake City, UT @ Club Expose 8/14 Missouri, KS @ The Riot Room Kansas City Power Metal Festival 8/17 New York, NY @ Lit Lounge 8/19 Pittsburgh, PA @ Smiling Moose 8/21 Chicago, IL @ Nite Cap Keep an eye out for the new album coming in 2010.
