about

Get ready to embark upon an adventure of epic proportions! Hailed as champions of the “New Wave of British Power Metal”, Sorcerer’s Spell are set to enchant audiences everywhere with a unique and diverse mix of musical influences combined with a passion for high fantasy and grand narrative concepts.

The six-piece’s latest incarnation formed in late 2011 with the addition of singer, Mitchel Emms, who completed the line-up of Paul Templing and Andy Whittle on guitars, Amy Turk on keys, David Stanton on bass and Ben Turk on drums. In April 2012, they released their debut commercial release, the three-track EP “Skeleton Throne”.

The band originated in 2006, when founding member Paul Templing began recruiting members for a new project designed to stand out as unique and vibrant in amongst a largely tired and stagnated underground metal scene. During the band’s formative years they did just that, making an impact on local venues and quickly gaining notoriety as an exciting live spectacle. The band rose through the ranks to support such acts as Alestorm, Power Quest and Rise to Remain, culminating in an appearance at the UK’s premier metal festival, Bloodstock Open Air.

Now Sorcerer’s Spell are back, delivering their unique brand of metal with more power and vigour than ever! Prepare to be left awestruck as they unleash their wizardly waves of spellbinding sound at a venue near you!

Track Name: Skeleton Throne
They hold the key to power locked within their being
It is untouchable but still within my reach
I place my hands upon the arms of my creation
And feel reluctant force coursing through my veins

Kingdom of Anthror
All servants shall kneel
The reign of the tyrant
The darkness revealed

Their souls will forever be trapped
And I'll rule from their tomb
The Last Realm remains here intact
As my skeleton throne

Even in death I will not spare them from their agony
They will give up their rule and bleed it into me
The final resting place for Anthror's sacred monarchy
Restless are those [inside] as I reap their remains

Blood of the monarchy
Runs cold in defeat
The ruins of the kingdom
This cadaverous seat

(chorus)

We'll never surrender
Our spirits live forever
We'll never surrender
We're standing strong together
We'll never surrender
United we will never die

We're waiting for a heart that's pure
To save the land from certain doom
For years our power's been abused
For evil deeds we'd been entombed
The sum of all our kingdom's hopes
Ride across the Antine plains
The six who journey ever on
To claim the throne where they will reign

A skeleton throne
Malevolent cornerstone
A skeleton throne
A relic of time stands alone
Track Name: Chasing Shadows
Listen, can you hear them?
The whispers in the wind,
Flowing through your consciousness,
And drawing you in

Let it be your heart that guides you,
May it be your faith prevails
Always have to believe in something,
Prophecy, myth or fairytale

Could it be that you'll find the answer?
Could it be you knew all along?
You exist for a greater purpose,
So take your chance before it's gone

In this place you must tread carefully,
Having visions you just can't bear to see,
Making waves that distort reality,
And your mind pursues them all.

Cross the verge of fantasy,
Chasing shadows of destiny,
For every dream that you create,
You destroy a thousand more.

Still you can hear them,
Their distant beckoning,
They swirl in your mind,
Still drawing you in.

Don't look back cause they're right behind you,
Collecting everything you've left behind,
There lies all that might have been and
Are you afraid of what you'll find?

Maybe there's nobody out there,
Maybe you're the only one,
All your untouched dreams left scattered,
Before they even had begun

In this place you must tread carefully,
Having visions you just can't bear to see,
Making waves that distort reality,
And your mind pursues them all

Cross the verge of fantasy,
Chasing shadows of destiny,
For every dream that you create,
You destroy a thousand more

Most precious of all that you hold,
You grip it so tightly; you'll never let go,
Others, you take them and toss them aside,
This one you'll keep or you'll never survive

But still it keeps slipping, constricting and fading,
It pours through your fingers like rivers cascading,
This place, it consumes you, you're haggard and frayed,
It hands you your dreams just to take them away

What if you're not really searching,
What if you've got no control,
Over anything that comes to you and,
You're watching destiny unfold
But don't give up, don't give in to this world,
No matter what it throws your way,
If you can find the strength inside you,
You'll find your answers here someday

In this place you must tread carefully,
Having visions you just can't bear to see,
Making waves that distort reality,
And your mind pursues them all

Cross the verge of fantasy,
Chasing shadows of destiny,
For every dream that you create,
You destroy a thousand more
You destroy a thousand more
You destroy a thousand more
You destroy a thousand more
Track Name: Jägermeister Metal
In a distant sacred land, many centuries ago
A dark liquid of pure metal ascended from below
The earth shook beneath them, and mighty winds began to blow
And what had been unleashed upon them nobody could know
And people ran and cowards fled from the mysterious flow
But the true believers stayed to witness it and so

What they saw would change the world and unite the people's faith in heavy metal

Jagermeister Metal!
Jagermeister Metal!
Jagermeister Metal!
Jagermeister Metal!

All looked up to the heavens above, and with a thunderous roar
A lightning bolt from the gods above set ablaze the blackened floor
And one brave warrior stepped forth, and though quaking to his core
He dared to taste the lake of fire forged from iron ore
As the steel touched his tongue he was fearful no more
And he declared triumphantly this drink was sent by Thor!

What he tasted would change the world, and unite the people's faith in heavy metal

Jagermeister Metal!
Jagermeister Metal!
Jagermeister Metal!
Jagermeister Metal!

And now we'll go and spread the word of heavy metal!
