SORCERER "Devotion"

Across the world, there’s one certainty in heavy music right now, and that’s hardcore. From the massive festivals to the stacked tour bills all the way down to the smallest local shows, the scene has rarely been stronger in the undercard, with a plethora of bands from across the world looking to stake their claim and bring their own strain of hardcore to the fore. SORCERER, hailing from France, are another one of those bands who look to force their way into the modern conversation, to elevate themselves from best kept secret to the name on the tip of everyone’s tongue. With famed producer Amaury Sauve, noted in the scene for his work with the legendary BIRDS IN ROW, behind the desk, the hopes are high for SORCERER on Devotion.

Over the course of three EPs since 2021, SORCERER‘s blend of metallic hardcore has continued to develop, but the band have always maintained a more gloomy and melancholy edge over other bands. The aggression and violence is still there though, if mixed in with a little more emotion and an almost sombre note at times.

The band like to experiment with more melodic, atmospheric parts at times, particularly on the creeping, almost haunting opening of The Arms Of Mortality, and when it kicks in, they almost sound like a heavier, more nihilistic TOUCHÉ AMORÉ.

The idea of a more epic, grandiose band that brings elements of the rawer moments of HARMS WAY and the shit-kicking of BRUTALITY WILL PREVAIL together with latter day CONVERGE atmospherics is a tantalising one. If this is the first step on a journey for the band, then it is one full of promise.
