Swedish Doomster Sorcerer sign to Metal Blade!
Metal Blade is proud to announce the signing of Swedish epic doom metal legends Sorcerer! Sorcerer will release their Metal Blade debut “In The Shadow Of The Inverted Cross” March, 20th on CD and vinyl.

Sorcerer was formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1988 but disbanded after two demos in 1992. Both demos are considered true Doom Metal classics and have been released on CD in 1995.
In 2010 the band came back together to play the Hammer of Doom festival in Germany and a year later the Up The Hammers festival in Athens, Greece. Both shows were received extremely well and the thoughts of putting together a new album started to take form. In the end it took over two years to write, arrange and record it but the result is nothing but pure, heavy epic doom metal. The process of putting all bits and pieces together and making it ready for mix and mastering was the work of drummer Robert Iversen, also a very fine recording engineer, who was acting as the spider in the recording web. The album was mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Devin Townsend).
With years of professional experience and top-class instrumental abilities among its band members the Sorcerer of the 21st century is determined to deliver epic doom metal for many years to come; on record and on stages all around the world!
