SORCERY has come to an agreement with Xtreem Music for the re-issue on CD of their legendary debut album from 1991 "Bloodchilling Tales" together with their previous 7"EP from 1990 "Rivers of the Dead", both with remastered sound for the first time and a totally revamped artwork and layout. This new re-issue comes under the title of "Legacy of Blood" and has been released last month by swedish labels To The Death & Blood Harvest on 12"LP vinyl format.
This album was out of print on its original CD version for a few years already and since the layout, sound and original cover were of poor quality, the band decided to give it a completely new look. However, original cover art both from the album, EP, photos and lyrices are being included on the new design for everyone's enjoyment.
SORCERY's debut 7"EP caused quite an impact in the swedish scene back in 1990 as well as their debut album a year later, being considered one of the leading Death Metal bands in their country together with acts like ENTOMBED, DISMEMBER, CARNAGE, GROTESQUE... creating their own sounding DM style with a devilish feel resulting on a cult album for any lover of swedish Death Metal.
Release date for CD version of "Legacy of Blood" will be May 10th. You can actually see the album cover on big size and listen to an album track on the following link:

02. Created From Darkness and Rage
03. Master of the Chains
04. United Satanic Alliance
05. Arrival at Six
07. Maculated Life

Swedish Death Metal legends SORCERY have inked a deal with XTREEM MUSIC for the release of their second full length album. Formed back in 1985 and thus being one of the very first Swedish Death Metal bands, they released three demos in '87, '88 & '89, a 7EP in '90 and an already classic album in 1991. The band split up in '97 and reformed in '09, recording two more demos before signing to XTREEM MUSIC.
SORCERY is currently working on their new album, over 20 years after their debut. Still untitled, it's being partly recorded with Tomas Skogsberg at Sunlight Studios, the same studio used in 1991 with "Bloodchilling Tales". Seven out of the nine songs on the album are brand new, written with the latest line-up consisting of original members Ola Malmström (vocals), Paul Johansson (guitar) and the two new members, John Falk (drums) and Mikael Carlsson (bass). The other two songs, "Master of the Chains" and "Maculated Life" were written during the bands earlier days and will perfectly link the old material with the new.
Cover artwork for the new album is being drawn by renowned artist Daniel Devilish while the recording will be finished around November for an expected release in January 2013 on CD with vinyl version later on. In the meantime you can listen two new songs featured on the band's "Warbringer" pre-production demo 2012 which are being re-recorded for the album with better sound, production and arrangements, will serve to hear what's coming!!
