The Sword perform cover T. Rex for their Conquest of Quarantine Series

Champions of the riff, The Sword, have released the first of three videos for a mini-series the band has dubbed, Conquest of Quarantine. Performing their rendition of the T. Rex classic, "Children of the Revolution," the visual is the first performance from The Sword since 2018.

With the pandemic sidelining plans for a trek with Primus this year, The Sword navigated modern technology and figured out a way to perform so as not to disappoint fans.

Explains bassist Bryan Richie, “It was a lot of fun getting together with Kyle and Jimmy to record these tracks, and thanks to the miracles of modern technology we were able to lay down a wicked session with JD all the way from North Carolina. Crank this from the comforts of your couch, Conquest of Quarantine brought to you with minimal overdubs and maximum rocking.”

The title of the series is a pay off the band's Conquest of Kingdoms three-disc vinyl collection comprised of 30 tracks (16 previously unreleased) of rarities. The collection includes live recordings of fan favorites like “Freya,” and “Iron Swan” plus cover versions of “Immigrant Song” (Led Zeppelin), “Nasty Dogs and Funky Kings” (ZZ Top), “She” (KISS), and more.
