paul rote I almost bought this ten times during the last few years. Never quite heavy enough. This is good quality AOR. Favorite track: Let it Go.

Topi Ken Kelly cover art! Brings back my teenage years... The 70's / early 80's style hard rock + Zeppelin cover that come with it are also nice. Favorite track: Let it Go.

Scumbag Something about this EP makes me think of the classic animated film Heavy Metal. I think it's a mixture of the cover graphics and the songs themselves which sound like they could have comfortably fit onto the brilliant soundtrack! Retro hard rock with killer solos that'll make you wish it was a full length album! Favorite track: Let it Go.

Mountainous guitar rock from a mysterious band of blade bearers.

The Mountain Blades sharpened two songs and recorded them over a weekend simply to test their steel . We held on to them for long enough and figured it was time to let it go. For some extra booty there is a live version of an original entitled, "Once and Forever King", as well as a live cover of a Led Zep song.

This demo was recorded on an old school 8 track machine in a wood shack on an island somewhere. The fantasy art is by the famous Ken Kelly of KISS, Manowar, Ricthie Blackmore's Rainbow fame.

If you would like to hear more from this band, why not let a dollar go at the feet of the swordswoman?!

Who are the Mountain Blades? We'd rather not say and let the music speak for itself. Listen to this demo and share it with friends if you dig it.

We hope it turns you on.

Track Name: Once and Forever King (Live in Studio)
I am the lonely one
I am the setting sun
You are the empty stone
My sword is driven home

Pulled forth by one true king
Cast back to the lake - I sing
Of the once and forever king
Avalon's lonely maidens sing

Low burns the secret fire
Shadows fall from men's desire
Around us darkness grows
A lady's hand no honour knows

Can you say what quest you're on?
Do you fathom a righteous song,
Or do the dragons burn you down?
An empty chair at the table round...

I am the chosen one
I am the wounded son
There is an empty throne
My crown has never known

Claimed soon my one true king
Sail on the horizon brings
The once and forever king

Avalon's lonely maidens sing...
