RELEASE ENDLESS ON
MARCH 27 VIA JOYFUL NOISE RECORDINGS;
11-TRACK ALBUM MARKS FINAL CHAPTER OF VOLUME 2 OF EVER-EXPANDING GRAPHIC NOVEL
Shores of Oblivion – Magic Sword, a trio of Immortals who lead the charge against evil in the ongoing Magic Sword multiverse (graphic novel, soundtracks and live performances), release Endless, the soundtrack companion to the Magic Sword, Chapter 3, Volume 2 graphic novel, via Joyful Noise Recordings on March 27.
With the three mediums intertwined from conception, together they are an epic experience for those bold enough to bear witness and come away with a deeper understanding of the ultimate hero’s journey. Armed with a musical and visual aesthetic that has its roots unabashedly buried deep in the golden era of 70s and 80s fantasy and sci-fi, its followers are called to another plane of existence where the struggle between light and shadow become all too real.
Now, the band share the album’s lead track, “Depths of Power”. “Many are chosen, but only one has the ability to wield the power of the Magic Sword,” says The Keeper of the Magic Sword, one of the trio of Immortals who serve as both the live outfit as well as the champions of good in the ongoing comic book series. “As one search ends another begins. For this well of power has no bounds. It is infinite. Endless.”
Magic Sword is The Keeper of the Magic Sword (keyboards), The Seer of All Truths (guitar) and The Weaver of all Hearts and Souls (drums). The Chicago Reader described the unique comic book-meets-live performance as an entity that “take as much inspiration from John Carpenter as from Daft Punk to create a funky, metallic, ominous soundtrack to their own comics-inspired canon”.
Magic Sword’s previous releases include one full-length album, Magic Sword Vol. 1 (and the accompanying comic of the same name), and two EPS: Legend (accompanying comic: Magic Sword Volume 2, Chapter 1) and Awakening (Magic Sword Volume 2, Chapter 2).
