Swedish epic doom metallers Sorcerer have released a new single and video – their tribute version of Saxon‘s “Crusader” – through Metal Blade Records! Watch the video for this magnificent rendition below.

The original song was the title track to Saxon‘s sixth album “Crusader”, released in 1984, and is still one of the most beloved songs from these NWOBHM pioneers.

Sorcerer vocalist Anders Engberg says: “For me Saxon, they have always been there, ever since I started listening to heavy metal, and I had the luck to tour with these guys with my old band (Lion’s Share)“.

Drummer Richard Evensand, who is a huge Saxon fan, is super excited. “It was the first band I started to really follow as a teenager and it still is one of my favorite bands today. For me Saxon equals energy and long tom rolls… in fact more than long tom rolls; mega tom rolls perhaps. Nigel Glockner has really influenced my play as a drummer. You can imagine that I was immediately in favor of making a Sorcerer rendition of “Crusader”. It’s the most powerful song there is on this planet! Peter Hallgren did an excellent job on the arrangement. We hope everyone loves our version as much as we loved making it!

Since Sorcerer‘s latest release, “Lamenting Of The Innocent (2020), the pandemic restrictions have impacted the whole music scene and interfered with promotional aspirations and touring. While Sorcerer‘s main focus lies on creating new material for a fourth record with Metal Blade and moving forward, the vacuum of the pandemic offered the band some spare time for a fun side project.

Sorcerer‘s “Crusader” is now streaming on all digital platforms here.
