SORCERER pays tribute to Black Sabbath and releases cover single and music video of ‘When Death Calls’
Today October 8, Swedish epic doom band SORCERER do première their new cover single and music video ‘When Death Calls’ through Metal Blade Records. A tribute to the Godfathers of doom BLACK SABBATH.
Following on from the tribute cover of RAINBOW classic ‘Gates Of Babylon’ – that SORCERER released last month – this time it’s BLACK SABBATH that is being celebrated and put on a pedestal.
PERSONAL COMMENT BY THE BAND
According to Sorcerer guitarist Peter Hallgren: “Black Sabbath is an endless source of inspiration for writing good music in whatever style of hardrock and metal” and to quote singer Anders Engberg: “You can hear it in the early Sorcerer songs, that we are a lot about Black Sabbath. Maybe we tend to mix in the more melodic parts – more like the Dio and Tony Martin era albums – in the music we make today. For me ‘When Death Calls’ is one of the strongest songs I think they have written. A really doomy song, which in my opinion sounds a lot like the music we make in Sorcerer. After having a blast recording ‘Gates Of Babylon’, we decided to give covering another spin. ‘When Death Calls’ was unanimously chosen as the track to go for!”
SORCERER’s ‘When Death Calls’ will be available from 8th October on all digital platforms.
