Compilation albums can sometimes be a head scratcher. When bands release them, it makes one wonder what’s happening with the group themselves. While that’snot the case with Texas’ The Sword, their dual compilation releases Conquest of Kingdoms and Chronology: 2006-2018 are packed with tons of goodies. Now off of Conquest of Kingdoms, the band has released a new song never released in the US. With “Daughter Of Dawn” fans will get to hear another side of the band.
The acoustic track offers plenty of rich guitar tones. Embracing their southern roots, the band digs deep into the format and still gives plenty of riffs worth getting into. The vocals blend well between the guitars and drums to create a new way to hear the band away from chunky metal riffs while still holding to their core.
The single can be heard above or on streaming platforms. Both Conquest of Kingdoms and Chronology: 2006-2018 are available for preorder directly from Craft Recordings before their release on June 19.
