Sellsword are the world's premier Mercenary Metal band, playing a mix of Power & Heavy metal with bombastic symphonic overtones. Founded in 2013 by a group of mercenaries aiming to put more coin in their coffers, they have been on a continuous gig campaign ever since; laying waste to many venues across the United Kingdom. During this time, they have shared the stage with bands such as Blaze Bailey, Moonsorrow, Manegarm & Red Rum, and have undertaken a UK tour with Dakesis. They are also popular at festivals, having played Warhorns 2014 & 2016, Sophie Fest 2015 & 2016, as well as the annual Jorvik Viking Festival gig by Asgard in 2015.
During this time of touring and performing, Sellsword have been working on songs for their first album, "...And Now We Ride", which was released in the winter of 2016. This 13 track epic contains everything from mid-tempo classic heavy metal tracks to blazing symphonic power metal shred-fests, and even a ballad! Lyrically, it deals with battle, betrayal, besieging & vengeance, as well as a song about sand zombies; Ashen Hand.
Despite only having been released for a short time, it has already seen immense interest from fans around the world, and high praise from the press.
