Best of Metal 2017: #12 Sorcerer-The Crowning of the Fire King

Scandinavian doom is an entirely different creature than American doom.  Scandinavian doom is a little more emotional and theatrical than its American cousin.  And it seems that Sweden holds the rights to perform this kind of music properly.  This is right from the foundations of Candlemass.  Long songs, slow dirge, soaring vocals.  If any of that sort of thing whets your whistle, then jump on board the good ship Sorcerer.
