Today in E-cards : The Sword and Meshuggah

by Wayne Graham

Howdy. There are a couple of E-cards available on the web today that warrant your attention.

One is for the latest Meshuggah release ObZen, coming your way this Tuesday from Nuclear Blast Records. Check out the E-card here, where you can sample each of the album's tracks (in the event that you didn't listen to the entire thing on Meshuggah's MySpace page earlier this week).

The second is for Gods of the Earth, the upcoming album from The Sword, in stores on April 1st, courtesy of Kemado Records. Check out upcoming tourdates, sample tracks, view an album promo, and download the (very excellent) first single "Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians" at the location here.

The whole Hooks So Big gang have heard both of these records, and prepare yourself, both of them are outstanding. We'll have our obZen thoughts for you early next week. A review of Gods of the Earth is forthcoming, as well.
