Candlemass to release ‘The Door To Doom’ in February

Posted by on December 6, 2018

On February 22nd, 2019, Candlemass’ new album The Door To Doom will arrive. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2012’s Psalms for the Dead will mark the group’s first album with vocalist Johan Langquist in over thirty years who left after the group’s 1986 debut Epicus Doomicus Metallicus. Additionally, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi will be featured in the song “Astorolus – The Great Octopus.”

Iommi commented:

“Candlemass are a major force in Scandinavian heavy rock and have always acknowledged the influence we had on their music. They asked if I’d contribute to a track which sounded pretty good so I thought ‘why not.’”

The group’s mastermind Leif Edling added:

“We feel very honoured that Tony Iommi said yes to play the solo on ASTOROLUS. The song was sent to the management and amazingly enough, the master agreed to let his mighty SG sing on the track! For me personally this is a dream come true. Tony Iommi has always been my hero and guiding light when it comes to heavy music, so to hear that he likes the song and also would like to play on it, gave me chills down the spine! I’m still in shock! But kudos to him to be so cool to even listen to it. Hats off! Tony Iommi is and will always be God!”
