SORCERER Streams Extra Doom-Heavy Cover Of MOUNTAIN's "Gates Of Babylon"

Sounds like a Candlemass song.

Sorcerer is now streaming their cover of Mountain's 1978 track "Gates Of Babylon", which if I didn't know any better would've just made me assume this was a Candlemass song. It's got that real epic doom quality to it, and it's extremely well played.

"When trying to come up with a way to arrange 'Gates Of Babylon' and give it a different spin, I tried to imagine what it would've sounded like if Tony Iommi wrote it instead of Ritchie Blackmore," said guitarist Kristian Niemann. "It probably would've been slower and heavier, possibly down-tuned a bit. We skipped the keyboard intro because it would be impossible to capture the magic of the original. We had a great time recording this single at SolnaSound Studios, and overall we are very happy with how it turned out. We hope our fans will dig it too."

"Gates Of Babylon" is available to stream here.
