The Sword

How metal is a band that markets its own hot sauce? When the band in question is Austin's kings of metal, The Sword, the answer is: Insanely. Along with showing off their culinary contributions on a recent episode of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, the quartet, led by J.D. Cronise, recently played Metallica's Orion Festival and will be headlining Fun Fun Fun Fest. By catching this modern-day Sabbath-like force inside the smoky confines of Rubber Gloves, one will be able to see just how fortified the walls of the revered Denton venue really are.
