A Wednesday night at Webster Hall saw the return of The Sword, bringing brothers in heavy metal Eagle Claw and Gypsyhawk to the stage for an evening of the classic heavy metal sound updated for an audience too young to get in on the fun for the first go-round.

This type of nostalgia-plumbing can go both ways, but while the two openers were new to me, I’d had the pleasure of seeing The Sword open for Metallica on the end of touring their Gods of the Earth album a few years ago and knew they could bring some serious chops to the stage.
