Sword - Metalized
Metalized is the debut album by the Canadian heavy metal band Sword, released in August 1986. Highlights include the anthemic album opener "Follow The Wheel" and "Evil Spell," which, with its howling vocals and sludgy guitars, sounds like a cross between Metallica and Black Sabbath. The album samples several heavy metal sub-genres, such as thrash metal on "Outta Control." From Saint-Bruno-De-Montarville, Québec, Sword was formed in 1981 and opened for acts such as Alice Cooper, Motörhead, and Metallica.
