The Sword are back with the new album 'Apocryphon,' and Loudwire is giving you a chance to win a prize pack featuring a baseball tee, a 24"x36" 'Apocryphon' poster, an autographed 'Apocryphon' CD and a limited-edition 'Apocryphon' cassette tape.

The Texas rockers have stepped up their game on their latest release, and the guitars are as prominent as ever. Guitarist Kyle Shutt stated earlier this year, "I'm going to try to push myself with my guitar playing. A lot of the songs are more mid-tempo, but still impossibly heavy. People are going to like it. I think it'll appeal to fans who aren't fans right now. You can either get our first three record, you can just get this one." The album just earned a four-star review from Loudwire.

Highlights on the disc include the title track, the standout opening song 'Veil of Isis,' the incredibly catchy 'Execrator' and the trippy cut 'Dying Earth.' This is the band's first release for their new label, Razor & Tie, and they'll be launching a tour shortly to promote the effort. Fans can catch the band beginning Oct. 29 in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Enter below for a chance to win The Sword's 'Apocryphon' prize pack, which includes The Sword baseball tee, a 24" x 36" 'Apocryphon' poster, an autographed 'Apocryphon' CD and a limited-edition 'Apocryphon' cassette tape. You can also order the album at Best Buy or the Razor & Tie merch site.
