I could write volumes about Sword Heaven, but doing this record justice will be difficult. This band just has one of those grips on me. I remember Greh Holger strongly recommending them to me, shortly before he released their 3-inch CD-R. It was not all that long before BLOODYMINDED played a show with them and it was crystal clear why they had been talked up to me so much. I do not know if the term "primal" is correct, or if it is "primordial," or even "primeval." Even when they were new to me, they seemed like they had been around forever. For those who could use the help, imagine "Filth"-era Swans and "Kollaps" -era Einsturzende Neubauten, meeting for a recording session in some horrid, massive factory basement, but only two guys showed up, and they still managed to simply pulverize the hell out of everything. "Piles" is a breakdown from the middle of a live song called "Under the Face," which was recorded in September, 2006. The song is usually only about two-minutes long, but on that night, the breakdown itself lasted for 7-minutes. The band split it into two parts, retaining all of the screaming, the feedback, the pounding, and the scraping.
