Three months after the departure of former singer Messiah Marcolin, Candlemass have announced Robert Lowe of Solitude Aeturnus fame as new vocalist. The official statement reads as follows:

"After months of auditions it is now official who replaces Messiah Marcolin in Candlemass. Robert Lowe, well known for his work with Solitude Aeturnus, is the man who killed all the competition and showed that he beyond doubt is the most capable man for the job. A worthy successor!!

Robert will still be fronting SA, but since there's a whole ocean between the bands, we/Candlemass, feel that this is a great solution that is very beneficial for everybody. The mighty voice from Dallas Texas, is thrown into the fire immediately and is starting the vocal work on the new Candlemass album in a matter of days. Candlemass are sure that the words "amazing" and "incredible" will be used to describe the result! Candlemass would also like to thank all the gifted singers who applied for the job. Many talents from all over the world have been heard. We are sure that they will continue to be heard for a long time, but not in Candlemass. The band have finally found the ideal replacement for Messiah Marcolin - Robert Lowe! The new album will KILL!!"

They should've asked former vocalist Thomas Wikström (I'm best friend with his son )

He would be a great addition for Candlemass but hopefully that doesn't mean that Solitude Aeturnus will split up. Their latest, Alone, is just awesome.

Robert Lowe is ok. But Messiah is the lord of DOOM!
