Staff review by
Crawling out of the depths of history come Sorcerer, the Swedish epic doom band whose story is similar to that of recent successes Hell; they came into being back in 1988, but disintegrated shortly, leaving only a handful of demos and compilations to trickle out periodically over the decades. In 2010, vocalist Anders Engberg and bassist Johnny Hagel resurrected the band with some new blood, eventually getting around to recording a proper album. It might be 27 years overdue, but In The Shadow Of The Inverted Cross constitutes Sorcerer's official full-length debut; unlike Hell, however, Sorcerer have chosen to let their old demos stand as they are, opting instead to fill their first true album with all-new material.
