Band: Angel Sword
Release: Ripping the Heavens (EP)
Genre: Traditional Heavy Metal
Country: Finland
Year: 2013
Label: Self-Released

I was recently contacted by Jerry Razors from the mighty Angel Sword to include their newest EP onto the blog for your listening pleasure.  These dudes play a raw and gritty style of heavy metal, whereby the vocals surely accentuate a certain “punk” atmosphere to the band’s repertoire.  Although the whole listening experience is fairly short, each track delivers that same burst of energy needed to make you come back for more.  All in all, this is nothing but a really solid EP, and I’m very much looking forward to some more Angel Sword releases in the near future.  By the way, whoever designed that album cover should be throned…I mean an angel wielding an automatic rifle in one hand and a sword in the other, in an attempt to eradicate Heaven?  That has to be one of the most badass covers I’ve ever seen! Anyway, do not forget to support these guys as usual and be sure to check them out on Facebook!

You can always contact the band on their Facebook page if you would like to purchase the EP on tape!
