Sorcerer CD scores high with Doommantia

Sorcerer – Sorcerer CD. Here’s an early review from : “Sorcerer was a doom metal band that formed in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1984 by Johnny Hagel and Peter Furulid. The band started playing local shows with singer Anders Engberg before they were joined with a second guitarist. In 1989 they recorded their first demo which sold around 1500 copies. In 1992 they recorded their second and last demo before Hagel left the band. For some time the band used session bass players but when Anders left them in 1993 the band fell apart. Both demos were very well received by the metal press all over the world and in 1995 John Perez of Solitude Aeternus decided to do the right thing and release both demo tapes on CD through his label Brainticket Records. 15 years later John Perez has come to the rescue again by re-releasing the album with a bonus track not found on the original album and a 12 page booklet with lyrics and full liner notes from John Perez of Solitude Aeturnus.
