The Sword's "High Country' is a continuation of their new image. Since their inception, The Sword have changed their style and sound from a doom metal perspective to a significantly lighter, more experimental version of hard rock. This alteration of sound, along with this new release "High Country", has been rather successful in the eyes of critics and newer fans. However, to the more nostalgic The Sword fans like myself, this is another disappointing effort by a once crushing, dominant metal band.
