ALBUM LAMENTING OF THE INNOCENT
LABEL METAL BLADE RECORDS
OUT May 29th, 2020
OUR RATING 90/100
Let’s start from the end: LAMENTING OF THE INNOCENT is one of our highlights in this first mad slice of 2020!
In a doom scene rich of great bands, SORCERER from Sweden are truly one of the best; their doom, rich of shadows and epic drops, a clear and powerful productions, fancy arrangements make this platter a must-have.
After two gems such as IN THE SHADOW OF THE INVERTED CROSS and THE CROWNING OF THE FIRE, this album is another step ahead, where they are really inspired.
The work of two guitars is magic, where power is enriched by a tasty melodic touch when it needs, and the sound is at times closer to prog, classic Hm or almost hard rock.
If INSTITORIS or HAMMER OF THE WITCHES are fine examples of doom of the current day, WHERE SPIRIT DIE provides awesome melodic lines; JOHAN LANGQUIST of CANDLEMASS is the special guest of acoustic and softer DELIVERANCE.
To remind the great contribution of rhythm section and vocals by ANDERS ENGBERG, forever an added value.
TO SUGGEST WITHOUT HESITATION!!
