Sellsword are a self-described "Mercenary" power metal band hailing from the Viking city of York, UK. Formed in 2013, they have been on a continuous gig campaign; laying siege to many venues across the United Kingdom. During their time, they have shared the stage with bands such as Heidevolk, Blaze Bailey, Moonsorrow, Manegarm & Red Rum, and have undertaken a UK tour with Dakesis. They have also played at several festivals, such as Warhorns 2014 and 2016, Sophie Fest 2015 & 2016, and the annual Jorvik Viking Festival gig in 2015 and 2017, all to great avail.
During this time of touring and performing, Sellsword worked on songs for their first album, "...And Now We Ride", which was released in the winter of 2016. This 13-track epic contains everything from mid-tempo classic heavy metal tracks to blazing symphonic power metal shred-fests, and lots in between! Lyrically, it deals with the themes of battle, betrayal, besieging & vengeance. It has already seen immense interest from fans around the world, and high praise from the online metal press.
Currently Sellsword are in the late writing stages of their follow-up album and have recently been teasing audiences with new upcoming unreleased tracks. Huzzah!
