Anyone else know this band?
They drift slightly more into progressive heavy metal category than rock, but anyways this is quite old progressive influences having heavy metal. Propably one of the oldest.

The band was formed in Vancouver, Canada 1979. Sacred Blade released three demos which got pretty much praising in underground circles. They released their only full-lenght album Of The Sun + Moon at 1986, which for me is really in my TOP10 albums of all times. After this Sacred Blade released three more demos before calling its quits. Their song "Alien" appeared in Metal Massacre Compilation IV.

In 2003 band was reformed to re-record some old classics and unreleased material for a new album called Beyond Into The Night of The day under name Othyrworld, which in my opinion turned out to be a great record even after so long break (many bands tends to get totally watered down after two to three decades of inactivity).

I suggest any of you liking progressive heavy metal, or heavy metal with progressive edge to go check them out http://www.othyrworld.com/sacred_blade/ or inside my blog
