What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?
Work extremely hard to create your music. If you have to spend nights starving to create a masterpiece then it can all be worth it. Axesword didn't get anywhere by writing and recording songs in half an hour.
What will Axesword’s next release be?
Axesword have recently recorded their debut EP in a town filled with mythical beasts that have the head of a Horse and the body of a Horse. It was thus sent to Hell and returned with brutal mastery and the impending doom of its release date is nigh.

After the EP is released, providing there is no rapture... a live show like no other.

Axesword's lyrics mainly come from life experiences.

Brutal. Now that's a word and words cannot describe it, but that's the closest... Except maybe Alan.
What is in your CD collection at home?
Just a 40 minute vinyl of the "Brown note".
How did you come up with the name Axesword?
More of a necessity than a thought. What weapon would you pick in a fight? An axe? Or a sword? Axesword picks an Axesword.

What rumour would you like to start about Axesword?
Behind the masks are Drew Neemia and Suzy Cato.
The lord of the underworld, Satan has sent his demons to the surface to bring the brutalizing tones of hell to the puny ears of humans.
Listening to these guys is like being in a steel tornado of brutality.
Axesword will be releasing their debut EP in 2012 and will blow the ears off your head and replace them with metal ears because only people with metal ears can listen to this kind of metal because it's metal as.
