"It's with great pleasure we can now announce the next two bands for PROGPOWER SCANDINAVIA 2009:

Headliner for the first night of our main-event will be Swedish doom metal kings Candlemass (www.candlemass.se). 10 full length albums, a live album, a couple of live DVDs and a bunch of EPs, into their career and they are sounding better than ever, a statement to which the new album "Death Magic Doom" (their second with American vocalist Robert Lowe) serves as bullet-proof evidence. Although Candlemass isn't exactly power or progressive metal, we feel that their heavy-as-hell blend of classic metal infused riffs and doom-stomping beats makes them the prime example of how genre-descriptions doesn't really matter - it's all about the quality! We're sure that any open minded music fan will be able to embrace this fantastic band and enjoy witnessing them headline the first night of PP Scan 2009.

As second band on Saturday 26th of September Swedish/Norwegian melodic power metallers Saint Deamon (www.saintdeamon.se) will be performing. Built on the ashes of power metal band Dionysus, Saint Deamon continues with a highly melodic blend of heavy metal, hard rock and powerful metal, musically somewhere between Hammerfall, Europe, Dream Evil and Royal Hunt. A total feast for all fans of big melodies and sing along choruses."

This year's edition will almost be better than last year

I was thinking about how Candlemass is performing in ProgPower Scandinavia, even if they aren't prog. Interesting choice nonetheless.
