Candlemass - To Release Farewell Album In June


Swedish epic doom metallers Candlemass will release their final album Psalms For The Dead in June. A limited 12" vinyl single, Dancing In The Temple Of The Mad Queen Bee, including two album tracks will be released in advance on April 13th via Napalm Records and can already be pre-ordered here. The single artwork can be viewed below.

Bassist Leif Edling commented: "This record represents everything that is Candlemass. It is big, fat, epic and heavy, and it's also metal as fuck! We couldn't have done a better album! It's our last one and we put just all we had into it. Psalms For The Dead is an album about the presence and absence of time, false prophets and inner demons... hymns, regret and farewell. Let there be doom!"

Nowadays Johan does perform with them from time to time to do Epicus Doomicus Metallicus live


So given that, it does make sort of hinder the Anniversary shows of their specialty IF decidingly Johan just fancies to come up now and then. I could have took this wrong. But I really wish to see them live and would never complain having Epicus played entirely.

It's not about him wanting to show up or not it's about Leif wanting him to come and join them live or not.
Remember Candlemass was and is solely Leif's band, he calls all the shots.

I saw Candlemass live 2 years ago, didn't notice if Lowe was reading the lyrics from a piece of paper or something (it's not like they have the most complicated lyrics though).

At least Edling knows when to quit, unlike other bands who just keep going on solely to milk the proverbial cashcow. I want to see them with Langquist before they split up, I'm not sure when/where/if that will happen though.

But then you also didn't notice Rob halford reading the lyrics off the monitors. And he's been doing that for years and years and years now.

I noticed he is doing that with new songs (as obvious on Rising in the East) but yeah, it's a shame he does that on Rapid Fire too from what I've noticed. I don't really care as those are hardly the highlights of a Priest show (and during their last summer tour they played 2 hour and 15 minute shows every other night at age 59 and still sounded great, so I'll cut him some slack).

It's beyond me how tons people like King of the Grey Islands more than Death Magic Doom. King has some of the most lackluster songwriting Edling has ever cranked out. So many of the songs just plod along. Death Magic Doom has so much life to it in comparison.

I disagree. To me it is clearly the other way around
