Swedish doom metal band Sorcerer have released a new video for their song Prayers for a King, the track is taken from their latest album In The Shadow Of The Inverted Cross, which was released in March 2015.
Said Sorcerer about the video clip – “Making this video was the brainchild of Daniel Nyqvist, he did a great job! We tried to reflect the story from the lyrics and Daniel made a fantastic job on this video. Prayers For A King is one of the more epic and gloomy songs on the album, enjoy!“
From a press release about the band – “Sorcerer was formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1988 but disbanded after two demos in 1992. Both demos are considered true Doom Metal classics and have been released on CD in 1995. In 2010 the band came back together to play the Hammer of Doom festival in Germany and a year later the Up The Hammers festival in Athens, Greece. Both shows were received extremely well and the thoughts of putting together a new album started to take form. In the end it took over two years to write, arrange and record it but the result is nothing but pure, heavy epic doom metal. The process of putting all bits and pieces together and making it ready for mix and mastering was the work of drummer Robert Iversen, also a very fine recording engineer, who was acting as the spider in the recording web. The album was mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Devin Townsend).”
