Sorcery - Bloodchilling Tales (1991)

Genre: Death Metal
Country: Sweden

Sorcery really don't get a lot of attention, despite the fact that their 1991 LP Bloodchilling Tales is a riffing, growling piece of earlier Swedish death metal. Everything that makes the Swedish scene noteworthy is here, from putrid riffs to sepulchral vox to the lyrics and album art, which are all about alchemy, satan, death and sorcery (hur hur). It's far from being the most polished release to come out of Sweden but this was recorded in 1991 in what was most likely a basement. So have at it.

brewing potions and hiding corpses with that wizard on the album art
