The manifestation of pure doom metal!
CANDLEMASS have come full circle: their first singer Johan Langquist (who left the band after singing on the legendary 1986 debut Epicus Doomicus Metallicus) has returned!
They are set to release their 12th full length album “The Door To Doom” this Friday February 22nd via Napalm Records. Before they do however, the band has partnered up with Kerrang for an exclusive full album stream. Check out an exclusive interview with vocalist Johan Langquist and listen to “The Door to Doom” in its entirety HERE.

“The Door To Doom” unsurprisingly follows the plot line mastermind, songwriter and bass player Leif Edling established in the past years: epic world class doom metal that relies on slow mammoth riffing. With Johan Langquist`s highly dramatic vocal style and the love for details, the band made this album to the next “Epicus”. This masterpiece is rounded off by a beautiful guest appearance by none other than Black Sabbath`s Tony Iommi on ‘Astorolus – The Great Octopus‘.

1. Splendor Demon Majesty
2. Under The Ocean
