Sorcerer Premiere Rainbow Cover "Gates Of Babylon"

Sorcerer premiere their cover of Rainbow's classic track "Gates Of Babylon", streaming via YouTube for you below.

Explains guitarist Kristian Niemann:

"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. 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."

Sorcerer are:
Anders Engberg - vocals
Kristian Niemann - guitars
Peter Hallgren - guitars
