Sorcerer - In The Shadow Of The Inverted Cross

Label : Metal Blade | Archive under doom metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Pim B. : When I heard about the return of Sorcerer I immediately was curious about new material. This Swedish epic doom metal band existed between 1988 and 1992 and recorded two demos. Both demos were later on released on CD twice. As far as I'm concerned everyone who says they like epic doom should have heard those recordings. Anyway, the band has now returned with a new album. From the old line-up only bassist Johnny Hagel, who you might now from Tiamat, and singer Anders Engberg (220 Volt and Therion to name just two bands he was/is in) are left. What the band shows on 'In The Shadow Of The Inverted Cross' is outstanding. This album already belongs to the best 2015 has to offer. Doom in the vein of Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus or Memory Garden that sounds majestic. I can't find anything negative at all. Perhaps you could talk about originality, but how many epic doom bands are there anyway? No, this is an album you have to hear. The songs are awesome and the vocals of Engberg are of the same high level of, say, Mats Levén.
