Blood Hails Steel - Steel Hails Fire

Megaton Sword

Hail the Sword, the heart!
Its peaks are soaring high.
In its towering flanks, the grand cities almost touch the sky.
There is no other place in the skies.
Niralet, hear my battle cry!

Hailing from Winterthur, Switzerland and founded in 2018, MEGATON SWORD are ever
aptly monikered: theirs is a nuclear-powered style of true-as-steel Heavy Metal drunk on
high fantasy and the enduring themes of conquest and valor, triumph and tragedy in the
world NIRALET created by singer Uzzy Unchained. The band’s first public reocrding is
therefore fittingly titled Niralet and it arrives as a fully formed document of a young band
already capitalizing on their considerable strengths. The quartet here create five mini-epics
that feel far vaster than their succinct track times suggest.

Now, with the arrival of their imminent debut album, Blood Hails Steel – Steel Hails Fire,
MEGATON SWORD are marching into the halls of greatness, with no one to stop them.
Retaining the same, well-named lineup – vocalist Uzzy Unchained, guitarist Chris the Axe,
bassist Simon the Sorcerer, and drummer Dan Thundersteel – MEGATON SWORD
maximize the strengths of the EP and then some, revealing new twists to that mystery of
steel whilst retaining the charisma and crunch that endeared them to the true-metal underground the first time around

Perhaps it’s the patient pacing they employ, allowing each bellow of bathos and push of
pathos to ring out and as true as possible; perhaps it’s the passion and machismo dripping
from every element, every drop of blood, sweat, and tears tangible and intense; or perhaps
it’s their music simultaneously sounding timeless and fresh, safely evading both rote
“retro” throwback and over-modernity in kind. Shortly after the recording Blood Hails
Steel – Steel Hails Fire, Megaton Sword grew to be a quintett, with Seth Angel joining the
ranks of the Niraletian legion.
