Gabriel’s Sword filled stadiums in the late 80’s with their signature brand of hair, spandex, and metal. After a tragic stage prop accident (think flaming sword), The Sword’s popularity started to lose ground. Honestly, most people were afraid to see the shows due to their intense nature. Mysteriously, all four founding members of The Sword disappeared on a misty July morning in 1992. They were on a song-writing retreat in the fjords of Norway and were never seen or heard from again. It is rumored that The Lord was so pleased with their sound and Biblical lyricism that He could no longer stand to be separated from them. Some Norwegian locals claim to have seen four fiery chariots ascend into the heavens as peals of sweet heavy metal were being played by the angel Gabriel himself.
