CANDLEMASS are back to celebrate 30 years of Doom with a brand new EP! The special anniversary release named “Death Thy Lover” features four studio tracks with Mats Levén on vocals. The band is also happy to announce that Mats Levén, who’s a longtime friend of the band, is now the permanent singer for the Swedish Doom Metal Squad.
Watch the title track as a lyric video here:
Leif Edling comments on “Death Thy Lover”:
“We said we wouldn’t record an album, but we had to release something for the 30th anniversary of Candlemass, so it became this EP.
DEATH THY LOVER is in a way a typical C-mass song and in a way not typical for us. The chorus is pretty poppy if I can use that word (I would never have imagined I would use a term like that to describe anything C-mass!) but the main riff is very metal and the opening is us going classic Anvil Our old friend and now singer Mats Levén is doing a great job on the song! He’s also exactly what we needed live, and the band has became even better with him in the camp.
I’m still battling this fatigue syndrome thing so unfortunately I can’t be out there with the band on the road or in South America where they are now, but I hope our fans still enjoy the shows and dig the DEATH THY LOVER EP as much as we do ourselves in Candlemass!”
Epic riffs meet monumental parts of heavy metal! 3 decades of Epic Doom Metal, three decades of CANDLEMASS: Tons of Epic Doom Metal awaits, for the next decades and generations to come!
