A Sorcery Written in Blood was the first demo released by Norwegian black metal band Gorgoroth.[1] The title of the demo was taken from the lyrics of the song "The Return of Darkness and Evil" by the band Bathory. The demo was released in 1993 as a limited edition hand-numbered cassette. A 7" vinyl bootleg also exists; however, there are no official re-issues. Due to the Satanic imagery used on the demo cover, the newspaper Firda in Førde in Sogn og Fjordane, Norway, ran a front-page story on the demo and Gorgoroth on 7 January 1994.[2] The demo led to the band landing a record deal with French record label Embassy Productions. The track "Sexual Bloodgargling" is an early version of the song "Ritual", re-recorded for Gorgoroth's first album Pentagram.
