Sorcery - Arrival At Six

Label : Xtreem Music | Archive under death metal / grindcore

Release type: Full-length CD

Pim B. : Sorcery initially formed in 1986 and released three demos in the 80s. In 1990 France's Thrash Records released the 7 inch 'Rivers Of The Dead'. A year later the full-length album 'Bloodchilling Tales' came out on Underground Records but a year after that the band called it quits. Sorcery is one of the oldest Swedish death metal bands but in the heydays of the genre it went wrong. Their sole album has been re-released many times, often with different bonus tracks. In 2009 the band reformed ands a new demo was recorded, in 2012 another demo was recorded and now the second full-length has been released, 22 years after the release of the debut. 'Arrival At Six' sounds like a typical Swedish death metal album. For the production of the album the band used the skills of Tomas Skogsberg and his Sunlight Studio. The music itself is great too. Swedish death metal like it should be. The striking factor is the voice of Ola Malmstrm. He has no typical death grunt but as far as I'm concerned he is somewhere between L.G. Petrov of Entombed and Lemmy of Motrhead. Balancing more towards Petrov if I may add. They're not reinventing the wheel but fans of Swedish death metal can get this without any doubt.
