Swedish Death Metallers SORCERY have inked a deal with Xtreem Music for the release of their second full length album. The band split up in 1997 and reformed in 2009, recording two 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 for "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. The cover artwork is being drawn by Daniel Devilish, while the recordings will be finished around November for an expected release in January 2013 on CD with a vinyl version later on. In the meantime listen to the two new songs ‘Warbringer‘ and ‘Created From Darkness And Rage‘ featured on the band’s "Warbringer" pre-production demo 2012 which are being re-recorded for the album with better sound, production and arrangements.
