CANDLEMASS: 'Metal, Doom And Garlic'

October 18, 2006

The following message was posted on CANDLEMASS' official web site:

"Leif [Edling, CANDLEMASS bassist/songwriter] is busy doing cool stuff outside of C-MASS. Once a month he has got Klubb Sabotage at Bröderna Olsson, Folkungagatan 84 in Stockholm. It's a garlic place with great food, and in the basement different DJs play country/rockabilly/punk etc during the weekends. But once a month, Thursdays before payday, Leif runs Klubb Sabotage where he plays metal, doom and hard rock from 21.00 – 01.00. Everything from SABBATH to CELTIC FROST and ARCH ENEMY. Next time/next Thursday will be on October 19, so if you're in the neighborhood.... come down for some metal, doom and garlic. You'll love it!!!"

CANDLEMASS recently announced that vocalist Messiah Marcolin has agreed to sing on the group's upcoming studio album despite previously stating that he was leaving the band with no possibility of him rejoining. "We could not agree on how to do the new album," Messiah told BLABBERMOUTH.NET on April 28, 2006 while refusing at the time to elaborate on his sudden exit.

CANDLEMASS' upcoming CD — a concept album about the road to ruin in the modern society — is being self-produced and will feature nine or ten tracks.

CANDLEMASS recorded four new songs with the help of producer Andy Sneap (NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, MACHINE HEAD) in late February at the Polar studios. At the time, Leif Edling said of the material, "The songs are pretty much in the same vein as the stuff on the [self-titled 2005] reunion album, maybe a bit darker."

Check out some recent photos from the album recording sessions at this location.

GMR Music recently announced plans to re-release the CANDLEMASS albums "Chapter VI" (1992) and "Dactylis Glomerata" (1998) as double remastered discs.

"Chapter VI" will include the "Sjunger Sigge Furst" EP as bonus tracks plus a live DVD disc and "Dactylis Glomerata" will contain an entire previously unreleased album. Each reissue will be sold for the price of a normal full-length CD.
