Bio

After fielding offers from several labels, doom legends SORCERER signed with Metal Blade Records in 2014. In March 2015 Sorcerer released the critically acclaimed ”In The Shadow Of The Inverted Cross”. Sorcerer played several festivals in support of the album including Sabaton Open Air and Rock Hard Festival among others, with the latter especially being a huge success for the band, selling out their entire merch supply even before finishing their set. 2015 also saw the release of the EP ”Black” which consisted of 3 songs left over from the ”…Inverted Cross” sessions as well as an acoustic version of the track ”Prayers For A King”. In the end of 2015 the band started to write material for a follow-up album to ”In The Shadow Of The Inverted Cross”. Progress went pretty fast and 10 new tracks emerged out of many great embryos stored in the Royal Epic Doom chest. The songwriting carried on throughout 2016 and in early 2017 they went into the studio to record. During the recording the band and drummer Robert Iversen parted ways because of musical differences and Lars Sköld (Tiamat, Avatarium) filled the role as session drummer on the album.

In the early summer of 2017 the album was ready to be mixed by the very talented Ronnie Björnström (Aeon, Cut Up, 220 Volt) who also turned the knobs on their last album. The mastering this time was expertly handled by Mr. Thomas ”Plec” Johansson (Soilwork, Watain).

Sorcerer are extremely happy with the outcome of their second album ”The Crowning Of The Fire King” and hope that their fans will embrace this one as they did the last. They will promote the album with live shows during 2017 and 2018 determined to put their mark on the doom metal scene. With top notch musicianship coupled with strong, powerful songs they are ready to deliver their Royal Epic Doom to the masses around the world for years to come.
