Yeah, I noticed that at the Cleveland date. You're correct. It definitely was a cover of something they threw in, but I didn't recognize it at all. Apparently, nobody else on all of Youtube can either.

And you got no Chronomancer, 1 OR 2? That sucks a big one.

Yeah. This was a late show, but The Sword was "fighting sickness" AND there was a show before this one that ran a little late. Also, Mount Carmel didn't play at all.

Was going through The Sword's twitter and found this:

Highlight of The Sword - A cover of The Meters "I Need More Time". Woah. See also, The Urge.

I asked them, so we'll see.

Would've been kind of pissed to miss 'Night City', but it's still a great setlist. That is one random-ass cover, though . How was it?

So apparently when it is in the 30's and there's a lite drizzel of rain, the states of Kansas and Missouri are paralyzed with fear and multi-car pileups and highway closing accidents are common. Because of that, I left super early to get to Kansas City to see The Sword, and I was the only one driving above 40 MPH.

When the door's opened, I was quick to realize this show would be packed. I've only been to the Record Bar for three shows, but this one had the most people by far. It was never stuffed and I never thought I was blocking someone's view: it was absolutely right.

Mount Carmel canceled their performance, but Karma To Burn more than made up for it. The crowd gave them a great reaction, and the band really fed off it. Most of their songs were doomed-out and slow, but there were a few ragers thrown in. Only about two songs actually had lyrics, but for once, I wish it was completely instrumental. It was that good! I would love to see a full set from these guys some time. Torche wishes they sounded this good.

After a quick sound check, The Sword arrived and blasted through a truncated set. While our date had fewer songs, The Sword's performance more than made up for it. Their cuts off of their latest, Warp Riders, sounded fantastic, especially Tres Brujas and Lawless Lands. The crowd absolutely kicked into frenzy for some of their older jams, and it really got going during How Heavy This Axe and Maiden, Mother & Crone. The Sword never really let up in their unrelenting rock show, which pounded at my senses and it would've been unbearable if they played for any longer than they did. Perfect set length from them. There was constant pitting and loads of headbanging and we made sure to let the band know they'll be welcome back around these parts for a long time coming.

Oh, and the drummer for Karma To Burn smells terrible.
