Sorcerer releases video clips for entire new album

by Mislav Mihaljević

Last week, Sorcerer digitally released their third full-length, “Lamenting of the Innocent”, via Metal Blade Records worldwide (the album is physically available in the USA now, with a new June 5th physical street date in Europe). 

Since they first started, Sorcerer have been labeled “epic doom” – a tag that fits but does not define them, and this has never been more evident than on their third full-length, “Lamenting of The Innocent.” On this record, the Swedish quintet return with a revamped lineup that includes longstanding guitarists Kristian Niemann and Peter Hallgren plus vocalist Anders Engberg, joined by bassist Justin Biggs and former drummer Richard Evensand – both of whom bring something new and fresh to Sorcerer. This time around, the band let their influences shine through, breaking up the epic doom with flavors of prog, post-metal, classic heavy metal and hard rock. The track “Deliverance” also features a guest appearance: Johan Langquist of Candlemass and renowned Swedish cellist Svante Henryson.

Sorcerer comments:

They truly brought another dimension to that song and now it’s impossible to imagine it without their contributions, which is the way it should be when you bring guests in to perform; they are there to provide something you couldn’t do on your own.

Producing the album themselves, the band are self-confessed hardcore perfectionists who will accept nothing but the absolute best in every aspect of the recording process. The only collaborators involved in the making of “Lamenting of The Innocent” were Ronnie Björnström, who both mixed and mastered the album, and Conny Welén who contributed to the songwriting.
