Through storybooks and song, Boise's own Magic Sword has become the thunder reigning down from Thor's hammer. The electronic collective is composed of self-proclaimed inter-dimensional beings. The Keeper of the Magic Sword, The Seer of All truths, The Weaver of All Hearts and Souls, and the Harbinger. Their identities kept hidden from the mortal eye, their music now in the limelight.
A remix of their song "In the Face of Evil" sharing the silver screen with Thor and the Incredible Hulk in the official trailer for the upcoming blockbuster, Thor: Ragnarok. Much like many superheroes, their identities remain shrouded in darkness, lit by only neon, the secretive group turned down requests for an on-camera interview, instead, speaking only through written word.
"This company of humans known to us as, "Disney asked for us to bestow our vision to them in the form of song. They did not inform us of our successful union before this trailer was revealed," wrote The Harbinger in an email.
As millions watch the trailer, Magic Sword is attracting new legions to join their cause of slaying demons in the darkness, so good may prevail.
"You humans have indeed been drawn like a moth to the flame, the numbers of new faithful to our cause has grown exponentially," wrote The Harbinger.
As their army grows, their album "Volume One" is rising the ranks of a mortal measuring stick of popularity. "Volume One" is currently number 22 on Billboard's Dance and Electronic Charts. Something The Harbinger admits is a bit surreal, even for a group of inter-dimensional beings.
"While their music has been featured in the trailer, at this time even they don't know if they will be in the actual film, but The Harbinger tells 6 On Your Side have no plans of slowing down and won't be leaving the City of Trees anytime soon. If you would like to check them out, Magic Sword is playing the Knitting Factory in Boise on November 17th.
