"After 15 years of nonstop recording and touring, and still no one knowing who the fck we are..."

The Sword has been sheathed.

Yeah it must have been exhausting doing the same D-to-C pentatonic riff for every one of your songs.

Thank, god. Not a bad band, but I am sick of seeing them whenever I go to a Clutch show.

anonymous 9/6/2018 1:49:36 PM

clutch sucks

anonymous 9/6/2018 1:56:04 PM

finally something that literally was asked for

anonymous 9/6/2018 2:08:56 PM

not the best band by far, totally warranted to take a break.

anonymous 9/6/2018 3:45:11 PM

They're probably sick of crowds wanting to hear the old stuff.

They'll have to bump this news to the 'more news not displayed below' page due to lack site traffic.

^ This shit cracks me up.

anonymous 9/6/2018 6:14:05 PM

why just a break? they should just go ahead and kill themselves

anonymous 9/6/2018 6:28:49 PM

^^^^ They should have a sword fight....with their dicks.

The Sword realized that the last couple albums are garbage. Once a juggernaut, now asleep. All the Sword fans called and want Age of Winter II.

Remember when this band was on the original Guitar Hero? Or was it 2? Who cares
