Sorcery has always maintained their style of aggressive, brutal and intense death metal, and with this new work, they consolidate their position as one of the most respected Swedish bands in their genre. Necessary Excess of Violence, again with cover art by Juanjo Castellano, is, along with their debut, the best work of the band and will not disappoint any of their followers.
Sorcery was formed during the summer of 1986 and was influenced early on by the harder part of the hard rock spectrum. On the first demo from 1987 there are clear thrash influences but on the next release from 1988 the band has changed focus to what was to become known as Swedish death metal, something that the third demo from 1989 is an even clearer proof of. In the summer of 1990 the first single was released and in the following year the famous and very good debut album Bloodchilling Tales was released. Sorcery have a hiatus between 1997 and 2009.
